Schneider Electric has launched ‘Smart Panel’ in the Egyptian market.
The low-voltage switchgears are designed to help monitor and control electricity loads in administrative and industrial buildings.
Smart Panel was unveiled during the company’s ‘Intelligence Event’, which was held at its country headquarters in New Cairo. Schneider Electric also used the event as a platform to launch a selection of other products, including low-voltage distribution systems, which it argues are ideal for the Egyptian market.
Commenting on the launches, Albert Fuchet, company president in Egypt, said: “Schneider Electric is keen to bring [its] innovative solutions to the Egyptian market, and we’re proud to be a key player in this pivotal market that is expected to witness further growth and expansion during the upcoming period. The major development and infrastructure projects that Egypt is currently pursuing promise further development and progress… Today, we celebrate the launch of Smart Panel, our latest innovation, which represents an integrated yet simple solution to monitor and control the electricity loads in administrative and industrial buildings alike.”
The manufacturer has stated that its latest offerings for Egypt will provide users with onsite, real-time monitoring and control, helping to save energy whilst instantaneously monitoring readings. It added that the ability to anticipate required maintenance results reduces downtime, thus optimising energy use.
Eng Hassan El-Ardy, vice president for building and projects business at Schneider Electric Egypt and North East Africa, said: “Based on the understanding that you can never control what you can’t measure, Schneider Electric brings innovative power-consumption measurement and monitoring solutions to the local market, not only for conventional buildings, but also across… segments including factories, administrative buildings, shopping malls, [and] data centres.
“Regular monitoring and measurement provides decision makers with valuable tools to identify areas of extensive power consumption within the power system to help them make the right decisions when it comes to bower crises. With the ability to monitor and control power consumption, both within the building [and] remotely, users do not have to compromise operational efficiency or productivity. Schneider Electric’s innovative features enhance the competitiveness of products and services across diverse markets,” he concluded.
