IoT is gaining momentum in Australia and New Zealand


RS Components and Schneider Electric have partnered to enable wider access to Schneider Electric’s revolutionary open, interoperable and IoT-enabled architecture and platform, EcoStruxure, in the ANZ region.

The popular platform enables the wireless connection of plant instrumentation, allowing engineers to capture and monitor critical data.

EcoStruxure leverages advances in IoT, mobility sensing, cloud, analytics, and cybersecurity technologies to deliver innovations at every level, from connected products for edge control, applications, analytics and services – and for all branches of industry.

Products such as circuit breakers, sensors, and drivers are enabled with IoT through the EcoStruxure Connected Products layer, serving as the foundation for intelligent operations.

Through this partnership, Schneider Electric expands its customer base and brings IoT innovations to a wider field. The extension also allows the company to ensure that the highest level of expert service is provided to users. By playing a more active role with RS Components, Schneider Electric is effectively building industry skills to improve decision making and specifications.

“We want to be the first choice for every customer requiring industrial control devices, whatever their demands. This means we need to have the ability to specify and support, as well as execute,” said Scott Philbrook, RS Components Managing Director for ANZ.

“Having Schneider Electric’s expertise directly integrated into our business effectively enables us to provide the best possible technical advice and help our customers make the best possible decisions.

The next layer in the EcoStruxure platform is to integrate control at the edge, so that users can control the machines that collect data and act as a gateway to transmit it to the cloud. Once the data is available through the cloud, the EcoStruxure platform also offers analytics capabilities allowing users to perform deeper analyses. All three technology layers are supported by Customer Lifecycle software, which helps customers design, quote, build, configure and commission their EcoStruxure project.

Schneider Electric and RS Components are leading the digital transformation of industrial automation markets, ensuring Australian and New Zealand industries are equipped for smart manufacturing while increasing their profitability and productivity.
