Schneider Electric's Powerlink EM system reduces energy consumption by automatically switching loads off during non-occupied periods
Schneider Electric has added the Powerlink EM system to its Schneider Electric Powerlink G3 intelligent lighting control product family portfolio. The Powerlink EM system combines individual branch circuit remote control and metering functions in a single lighting panelboard enclosure to help users verify the performance of the control system. The Powerlink EM system provides historical trends that can be used to reveal opportunities for additional energy improvements and generates reports to allocate costs according to actual energy used. Smart metering is accomplished using the PowerLogic Branch Circuit Power Meter (BCPM), which is a multi-branch circuit power meter that provides low-current monitoring.
The Schneider Electric Powerlink G3 intelligent lighting control systems reduce electrical energy consumption associated with lighting and other loads by automatically switching loads off during non-occupied periods. Additionally, the Powerlink EM system incorporates the same features found in the Powerlink 3000 level system, including an integral scheduling functionality for operating individual brand circuit according to a daily schedule, full connectivity to building automation systems via BACnet and Modbus communications, and an embedded web server that allows instant access to the system operation and configuration.
