Schneider Electric recently re-branded their “PlantStruxure” IOT offering to “EcoStruxure Plant” as part of their internal global re-branding project. Moving forward, Schneider is planning to place greater focus on their initiatives to promote efficiency and sustainability, leveraging the EcoStruxure branding to widen the scope from a “Plant” focus to a much broader “Ecosystem” focus.
EcoStruxure is an IoT-enabled architecture and platform that is intended to make facilities safer, more reliable, connected, efficient, and sustainable. It is a key step in driving digital transformations for facilities that are looking to promote interconnectivity and modernize their systems. The Ecostruxure product offers three levels of innovation – connected products, edge control, and apps & analytics services.
The immediate results of this re-branding pertaining to EA is the change from the PlantStruxure Certifications Program to the EcoStruxure Plant Certification Program (list of certification name changes below). The re-branding has also launched new certification programs (also listed below). An important distinction to note is Unity is now EcoStruxure Control Expert.
