In line with its commitment to empower its customers with safe, reliable and connected products, Schneider Electric, the leader in the digital transformation of energy management and automation, announced the launch of its medium-voltage protection relay – Easergy P3 in the Indian market. Easergy P3 is an addition to the company’s portfolio of connected products that combines real-time analytics with advanced technologies and solutions powered by Internet Of Things. The product is not only focused on attaining optimum efficiency at a reduced cost of implementation but also ensures speed in procurement, installation, wiring, and configuration. With the latest protection and modern digital communication capabilities, the launch is a major step forward in Medium Voltage equipment protection and control devices.
The Easergy P3 is also simple to integrate and operate for panel builders and system integrators. It makes every stage of the project significantly faster, from off-the-shelf product selection, to installation and configuration. The protection relay trips a circuit breaker when a fault is detected and is designed to save operational uptime. The Easergy P3 is also part of the Easergy product family, a modern range of solutions from Schneider Electric, which also includes the innovative, award-winning Easergy T300 feeder automation device.
Sharing his views on the product launch, Prakash Chandraker, Vice President and MD, Energy Business, Schneider Electric India, said: “In the fast-changing energy scenario in India, our customers and partners need better, easier-to-use products with faster delivery. The new, digitised Easergy P3 protection relay delivers exactly that to our Medium Voltage electrical distribution customers, and further strengthens our consistent focus on innovation at Every Level.” he said.
“Today’s distribution systems are becoming more and more decarbonised, digitised, and decentralised. Consequently, safety, reliability, and efficiency are becoming increasingly critical and complex to realise. The Easergy P3 is designed to meet those needs,” he added.
