Schneider Electric Goes Digital with New Range of Digital Tools

Energy Management - Circuit Breaker - Power Management - Power Distribution

Schneider Masterpact MTZ circuit breaker

Schneider Electric, the leader in energy management and automation, has launched a series of optional modules for the Masterpact MTZ circuit breaker, boosting its protection, measurement and maintenance capabilities.

The tools will help energy and buildings managers safeguard their circuits and save costs through better power management and reduced downtime.

The Masterpact MTZ family debuted in the UK in 2016, and continues to be one of Schneider Electric’s smartest ranges of circuit breaker. With industry-first embedded Class 1 metering and improved performance in harsh environments, the MTZ can reduce operating costs and improves the safety of power distribution.

The range is embedded with Micrologic X control units, which allow the circuit breakers to share and receive data, as well as be controlled and monitored remotely. These control units can now be enhanced with a new range of digital modules, which extend their capabilities in several key areas:

  • Protection - Modules for Energy reduction maintenance settings (ERMS), Reverse active power protection and Ground-fault alarm increase protection for occupants and property.
  • Measurement - Energy per phase and Individual harmonics analysis tools help operators monitor energy and power quality, offering cost management and power quality functions to extend the longevity of the circuit.
  • Maintenance and diagnostics - Tools like the Power restoration assistant and Masterpact operation assistant increase uptime and help plan maintenance, with features that offer power outage management.

The digital modules can be downloaded through the GoDigital website using the Masterpact MTZ Mobile app or via a computer running Schneider Electric Ecoreach software.

Gary Buckingham, product and segment marketing manager at Schneider Electric, said: “By itself, our Masterpact MTZ circuit breaker offers superb circuit protection and insight for energy management, but at Schneider Electric we’re always looking to improve our solutions. This new range of digital tools provides more options to customers seeking even greater protection or customisation according to their specific needs.”
