Schneider Electric Accelerates Industries Of The Future Innovations
Schneider Electric Accelerates Industries Of The Future Innovations

Schneider Electric unveils several Industries of the Future innovations and called for stronger cross-industry collaboration at the all-digital Hannover Messe 2021. Schneider Electric believes that through universal automation, digital energy, and innovation, industrial enterprises with achievable sustainability goals will lead the global economic recovery while safeguarding our natural environment. “Industry is undergoing a massive paradigm shift further toward digitalization,” said Peter Herweck, Executive Vice President of Industrial Automation at Schneider Electric. “We’ve witnessed advances in artificial intelligence, robotics, the Internet of Things, and machine learning, and other innovations, but their full potential can’t be realized within closed industrial systems. To reach next level of efficiency, resiliency and sustainability, we must be bold. It’s time to reimagine what is possible when industries embrace interoperable technology and partnerships." "With universal automation and our recently expanded capabilities that are delivered through the combination of operational data management and industrial software, we continue our commitment to being open, agnostic partners to our customers, enabling them to gain the agility and resilience they need to thrive in the post-pandemic world.” Industries of the Future Schneider Electric is proud to unveil several offers and partnerships, enabling the next generation industrial world: EcoStruxure Automation Expert 21.1 is a hardware independent automation control system that easily integrates with third-party solutions to help manufacturers and process industries achieve step-change operational advancements SM AirSeT medium voltage switchgear is a leap forward for sustainability, using pure air and vacuum interruption instead of SF6 gas. It allows users to take full advantage of digital features to unlock the true value of their data EcoStruxure Service Plan helps ensure 24/7 service business continuity for large industrial players through remote consultancy, on-site support and condition-based maintenance  Service and Modernization Plan is a solution lasting between three and seven years and designed to relieve companies’ CAPEX pressure while still modernizing their electrical installations Galaxy VL 3-phase uninterrupted power supply (UPS) for mission-critical industrial environments that supports both energy and process efficiency and improves resiliency and reliability of operations, minimizing asset Total Cost of Ownership This is in addition to the recent announcement combining OSIsoft’s world-class PI System for operational data management with AVEVA’s leading industrial software, enabling industries to harness the power of information combined with artificial intelligence and human insight to simplify design processes, optimize production, reduce energy and maximize performance. Call for universal automation Schneider Electric is demanding stronger industry collaboration and urging industrial enterprises to embrace universal automation, sustainable efficiency, and digitalization to boost global economic recovery and advance manufacturing and process industries. Schneider Electric is challenging industry to advance the underlying technology model to meet modern agility and resiliency demands. “Open automation,” as it exists today, is not open enough as companies are bound by automation solutions that prioritize vendor lock-in rather than innovation. By contrast, universal automation is the world of interoperable, “plug and produce” automation software components, enabled by the IEC61499 standard. Portable application software is an essential enabler for next-generation industries, capable of unlocking step-change improvements in efficiency and sustainability impossible a decade ago. EcoStruxure Automation Expert  is Schneider Electric’s first offer based on the universal automation vision. ARC Advisory Group (ARC), the pioneering technology market research firm for industry, asserts in its report, The Road to Universal Automation, industry could save $20-30 billion each year with Universal Automation. Pilot tests indicate potential CAPEX saving of $1 million per unit, with even larger OpEx savings, according to ARC.
