Schneider Electric has developed the next generation of EcoStruxure Building, the open platform for buildings. According to company officials, EcoStruxure Building’s open, end-to-end IP architecture enables quick connectivity of IoT devices for faster commissioning and changes, and provides for edge control and collaboration between building systems and third-party systems and devices.

New elements of EcoStruxure Building include EcoStruxure Building Advisor, a service portfolio designed to improve occupant comfort and asset value while reducing operating costs. An integral part of EcoStruxure Building, EcoStruxure Building Advisor, leverages field service engineers and remote data scientists to convert data into predictable, actionable insights.

Officials also said the EcoStruxure Building Operations 2.0 is enhanced with cybersecurity and delivers a customized native user experience through a responsive WebStation and mobile apps to engineer once, deploy-all-devices, and provide mobile access on the go. An Enterprise Central supervisory server enhances monitoring and control capability from 200+ servers to 2,500+ servers for large and multi-site enterprises. The open, standards based platform using Smart Connector framework enables systems integrators to build applications and offer actionable insights through reporting and dashboards.

It also includes additional IP integrated offers for commercial buildings including SmartX IP Controllers and SmartX Living Space Sensors. These next generation, multipurpose field controllers and sensors leverage industry standards and IP-based open protocols for a 30% increase in engineering efficiency and 20% faster commissioning leveraging the eCommission mobile app.
