Smart machines involve many electrical, mechanical and maintenance challenges for end-users, designers and equipment manufacturers requiring smart motor management. They integrate the programmable machine control with both upstream plant and downstream switching for motor management and control. The Tesys Island developed by Schneider provides OEMs with a faster route to smart motor management for their machines.
TeSys island is a digitised load management solution that makes machines smarter and more reliable. It provides local and remote access to predictive & preventive application data for diagnostics & maintenance, thus reducing unplanned downtime. Importantly, it reduces a machine’s time to market enabling OEMs to move forward with smart machine development faster.
TeSys island uses an object-oriented approach to simplify application selection and system configuration. It automates and reduces engineering tasks to enable faster machine installation phase. It manages motors and other loads up to 80A/37kW, and supports major automation fieldbuses like EtherNet/IP, Modbus TCP, and Profinet/Profibus. Moreover, it is fast to integrate into Schneider Electric’s EcoStruxure Machine Expert.
The streamlined workflow comes through TeSys Island’s innovative load management system lets users build more effectively with an intuitive TeSys avatar library. The embedded Avatar logic in the TeSys island bus coupler also reduces PLC programming time. Function blocks in the EcoStruxure architecture provide faster integration including with other major automation maker’s PLCs.
Smart motor management
TeSys island provides data that enables the end-user to make intelligent decisions ahead of time, thanks to pre-alarms that help reduce machine stoppages as well as machine downtime. Its close integration with EcoStruxure provides the makes information to both operators and management alike
By connecting TeSys island to the EcoStruxure Machine architecture, it is possible to track and increase system performance from remote locations and conduct maintenance outside operational hours. The EcoStruxure Machine Advisor dashboard displays energy consumption and other critical data and advanced diagnostics of issues.
Augmented Operator Advisor provides the operator or maintenance service with access to the live data of the machine while in operation. In addition, datasheets, tutorials, and other documents used during operation or maintenance are available on demand. Using the integrated Operation and Maintenance Tool (OMT) as a web server, commissioning, maintenance, diagnosis and troubleshooting is available.
TeSys Island offers smart motor management for optimised and high-performance machines control for a wide range of application like food & beverage; material working and material handling; small pumps; manufacturing and logistics and packaging.
