PowerTag is a small wireless energy sensor
Schneider Electric’s PowerTag® is the simplest and most accessible way to monitor your electrical assets
Auckland (New Zealand), July 25, 2017 - Schneider Electric, the global specialist in energy management and automation, has released the smallest wireless energy sensor available, PowerTag®, which is designed to enhance the monitoring of electrical assets. PowerTag® is built to easily connect to a miniature circuit breaker and provides building owners and facility managers with precise, powerful, real-time data to increase the health of a facility’s strategic assets.
PowerTag® has been designed for any type of building with the energy sensor easily able to monitor and measure current, voltage, power, power factor and energy. The connection enables greater availability of electrical assets by providing the ability to better manage critical loads, which leads to higher reliability and efficiency of the electrical installation. PowerTag® works by wirelessly sending data to a concentrator that displays the data via inbuilt webpages, or to larger energy management systems or the building management system. Data can also be leveraged to create customised email alerts that assist facility managers with remote monitoring of their assets.
According to Zone President of Schneider Electric Pacific, Gareth O’Reilly, “Customers are demanding solutions that will meet the critical challenges of asset and energy management, today and beyond. PowerTag® is a great option because it makes asset and energy management much simpler.The majority of circuit breakers can now be tagged, bringing electrical distribution connectivity into a new era.
“The best thing is that PowerTag® can be easily fitted as it doesn’t require complex wiring, in total it can be installed within five-minutes and then you’re up and running. PowerTag® can also be integrated with Schneider Electric’s Acti-9 Communication System, which provides customers with an all-in-one monitoring and control solution.
PowerTag is also designed to be compatible with Schneider Electric’s EcoStruxure Power solution, to deliver reliable and efficient power access for peace of mind and significant financial benefits. IoT-enabled future-proof solutions are powered by innovation, enabling enhanced connectivity, real-time operation and smart analytics, including the ability to control assets remotely.
