Schneider Electric digitizes load management with TeSys island
October 5, 2020 by Manufacturing AUTOMATION
Schneider Electric has launched TeSys island, a digital load management system, to reduce machine stoppages and downtime.
The connected system digitally integrates multi-function motor starters into machine control panels, allowing for configuration for the direct control and management of low voltage loads.
TeSys island features a catalog of TeSys avatars that act like a digital twin on top of the physical device to facilitate integration.
This approach lets users focus on machine design, load integration and control, and simplifies the selection and commissioning of each electro-mechanical component.
Once in operation as part of Schneider Electric’s EcoStruxure Machine solution, TeSys island helps to minimize machine stoppages by providing secured access and diagnostic data for engineering and maintenance personnel by generating pre-alarms when unusual electrical load behaviour is detected.
Operators can access information remotely and set up timely intervention by maintenance personnel. TeSys island provides comprehensive device health, load level energy consumption and application-specific protection data.
The system manages motors and other electrical loads up to 80A, and electrical and mechanical configurations can be updated throughout a machine’s life cycle, with only basic system knowledge required.
