Schneider enables smart control with EcoStruxure Control Advisor software

Sunday February 19, 2017
Feb. 19, 2017 - Schneider Electric has added a new enterprise-wide IIoT plant performance and control optimization software to its PES and Foxboro Evo process automation systems and Foxboro I/A Series distributed control system.

Leveraging Expertune PlantTriage technology, EcoStruxure Control Advisor, a smart decision-support tool, provides real-time operating data and predictive analytics capabilities so plant personnel can monitor and adjust every control loop across multiple plants and global sites 24/7. According to Schneider, the software empowers users to optimize the real-time efficiency of the process throughout the plant lifecycle and to contribute directly to improved business performance. Describing it as a tool that works natively across a broad spectrum of industrial applications without substantial capital investments, the software promises to extract more value from existing investments by bringing plant operations closer to set point, minimizing out-of-spec production and identifying predictive maintenance indicators. Improving the performance of each control loop not only restores stability to the operation, it can drive up to a 2 per cent increase in energy savings and up to a 10 per cent increase in production capacity, it adds.
