For this Internet of Things (IoT) era, Schneider Electric has developed the “Future Ready” circuit breaker that increases efficiency and can adapt to ever-evolving needs for safety, reliability and sustainability — Masterpact™ MTZ.
The world is becoming more connected, electric, digitized, decarbonized, and decentralized. Power distribution is facing new regulations, becoming more seamless and connected. Schneider Electric has been setting the standard in air circuit breakers since 1987, first with the Masterpact™ M, and then with the groundbreaking Masterpact™ NT/NW circuit breakers. Each Masterpact™ innovation has incorporated the most advanced features and has established a legendary reputation for power uptime and protection against overloads, short circuits, and insulation faults — even in the toughest environments.
Now, Schneider Electric continues that reputation by redefining modern electrical distribution with the new EcoStruxure™ Power portfolio of digitized products that enhance connectivity, real-time operation, and smart analytics.
As power distribution changes, customers’ expectations grow, increasing the demand for solutions that enhance safety, offer greater cybersecurity, and are more reliable, efficient, and sustainable. The Masterpact™ MTZ circuit breakers prepare customers for the future of power distribution with smart connectivity, remote monitoring and easy customization via digital modules. Masterpact™ MTZ circuit breakers bring the “Future Ready” EcoStruxure Power capabilities required to build smart, dependable and sustainable power distribution systems:
- Seamless integration with building and energy management systems via EcoStruxure Power architecture
- Smartphone connectivity for wireless alerts and maintenance
- Precision Class 1 power meter built in for energy-saving capabilities
- Easy customization via digital modules
- Intuitive Micrologic™ X control unit
- Robust performance, even in harsh environments
“We are very excited about the launch of the Masterpact MTZ, the next generation of Power Distribution as part of our EcoStruxure Power portfolio. It offers so many advances for both customers and partners to ensure they are connected and taking advantage of the IoT, both today and in the future,” said Adrian Thomas, Vice President, Buildings Division, Schneider Electric Canada. “The MTZ not only enhances energy efficiency but provides an easy integration in existing and new control schemes. EcoStruxure Power is a scalable and ‘Future Ready’ portfolio of products and solutions with its IP capabilities and smart, intuitive, diagnostics and control.”
