Schneider Electric Digitizes Load Management and Launches Tesys Island as a Leap Forward for OEMs in Their Industry 4.0 Journey

October 26, 2020

To make machines smarter and help reduce machine stoppages and downtime for unprecedented productivity, Schneider Electric recently launched TeSys island, a digital load management system.

The new connected digitally starters into machine control panels, allowing fast installation and configuration for the direct control and management of low voltage loads thanks to an end-to-end digital customer experience. TeSys island’s innovative object-orientated concept of TeSys avatars acts like a digital twin on top of the physical devices to facilitate integration and allows faster time to market. This approach lets users focus on machine design, load integration, control and simplifies the selection and commissioning of each electro-mechanical component. Due to integration with the industrial fieldbus, TeSys island eliminates the need for auxiliary wiring and therefore reduces the need for I/O modules.

Once in operation as part of Schneider Electric’s EcoStruxureTM Machine solution, TeSys island helps minimize machine stoppages by providing easy and secured access diagnostic data for engineering and maintenance personnel by generating pre-alarms when unusual electrical load behavior is detected. Operators can access information remotely and set up timely intervention by maintenance personnel. TeSys island provides comprehensive device health, load level energy consumption, and application-specific protection data. Asset identification data is also available to track installations and support the development of new service enabled business models. This unprecedented level of data enables more accurate decision making to all users and reveals the secrets of the machine in operation.

As part of the renowned TeSys range, TeSys island can be easily integrated into Schneider Electric’s EcoStruxure Machine architecture and 3rd party automation systems; supporting all major fieldbuses.

“With TeSys island, original equipment manufacturers are able to bring their machine control panels into the 21st century by easily incorporating Industry 4.0 automation and the simplest and most efficient data exchange capabilities into their designs,” said Juergen Stawartz, Motor Management Marketing VP at Schneider Electric. “With guided design, assisted engineering, quick mounting, and reduced wiring, TeSys island gets machines up and running faster. Programming of input and output controls is eliminated thanks to the intelligence incorporated in the bus coupler, which serves as the system’s brains.”

Automation integration is simplified, as are programming, testing, and commissioning. The system manages motors and other electrical loads up to 80A, and electrical and mechanical configurations can be easily updated throughout a machine’s life cycle, with only basic system knowledge required.

TeSys island recently competed in the Industry products category of 2019 IF Design Awards which was presented at the award ceremony in Munich on March 15. The design of the TeSys island product reflects Schneider Electric’s key design values reliability, ease-of-use and ingenuity.
