Schneider Electric announced version 21.2 of EcoStruxure Automation Expert, further enhancing the capabilities of the world’s first software-centric universal automation system, per its maker, which notes that the new release will focus on helping future-proof water and wastewater (WWW) plant operations.
Water and wastewater plants that implement EcoStruxure Automation Expert will now have complete lifecycle management, integration of IT/OT services and improved system diagnostics for their automation systems, per Schneider. The solution also enables close integration with the AVEVA portfolio, further extending capabilities and options to add or modify as future needs arise.
EcoStruxure Automation Expert v21.2 is the next in an ongoing series of updates and enhancements that Schneider Electric delivers to the market at least twice a year.
“As the water/wastewater industry prepares for significant investments in modernization and growth, they will need to incorporate new digital tools to properly manage their operations and gain the greatest efficiencies moving forward,” said David Lee, water/wastewater segment leader, Schneider Electric. “By incorporating EcoStruxure Automation Expert, operators will gain greater control of their systems and reduce operating costs, while simplifying future maintenance needs.”
