It uses embedded IoT sensors to monitor electric signals and installation parameters of connected equipment. The data is then collected and used to monitor installation. Also, it can be sent to the cloud where the company analyses the data using artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning and human experience. This makes it easier and more efficient to spot issues and reach faster conclusions.


Also, with the digital interface, if there is a malfunction in a part of the infrastructure, it triggers an alarm and maintenance can fix this. Additionally, Schneider Electric says its setup has predictive technology that can anticipate issues before they happen.


With this optimised maintenance in place, partners can do away with the cost of unnecessary routine inspection; instead, maintenance will be conducted when there is a reason for it. Power consumption will be reduced while the energy is optimised. Remote operation tools improve safety as it can work from outside a hazardous environment.


The company remains determined in its goal to push automated technology to the fore-front.
