Schneider Electric Introduces PowerTag®, the simplest way to monitor and secure all your electrical assets
- Smallest, revolutionary wireless power meter reduces installation time in electrical panels by 90 percent
- Also improves safety and efficiency in all types of buildings
Singapore, April 3, 2017 – Schneider Electric, the global specialist in energy management and automation, today introduced PowerTag®, the smallest wireless power meter, available now in Singapore. Designed to enhance the monitoring and security of electrical assets, PowerTag simplifies the connectivity of individual breakers to a Building Management System (BMS), providing building owners and facility managers with precise, powerful, and real-time data to increase the health of a facility’s strategic assets.
Designed for medium and large buildings, the energy sensor easily monitors and measures energy use, currents, voltages, power and power factor. This first of its kind connection enables greater security of electrical assets by providing the ability to better manage critical loads - leading to higher reliability and efficiency of the electrical installation. Data is sent wirelessly to a concentrator to display the data via webpages, or within a larger BMS. Data can also be leveraged to create customised e-mail alarms to assist facility managers with remote monitoring of the assets.
The newly available wireless energy sensor has already gained industry recognition worldwide, named “Innovative Commercial Product of the Year” at the 24th Annual Electrical Industry Awards by the UK Electrical Times.
"Customers in Singapore are becoming more and more demanding for new solutions to meet the critical challenges of building energy management," said Damien Dhellemmes, Country President Singapore, Schneider Electric. "PowerTag fills a critical gap of making energy management simpler, with a form factor that does not require a complete overhaul."
"The building management sector in Singapore has been evolving rapidly over the last decade with increasing emphasis on building efficiency and connectivity. The Building and Construction Authority (BCA) has been at the forefront of these developments with the unveiling of the Green Building Masterplan, which complements Singapore's Smart Nation initiatives. Schneider Electric is well placed to support the country’s drive to helping at least 80 percent of the buildings in Singapore go green by 2030," Dhellemmes added.
The compact, space-saving auxiliary fits easily in new and existing panelboards, enhancing the energy efficiency of the entire facility. PowerTag is natively integrated into Schneider Electric’s Acti 9 Communication System to provide customers an all-in-one monitoring and control solution. PowerTag is available directly through Schneider Electric, or Schneider Electric authorised distributors. For more information, including technical specifications, please visit:
