RS Components supports Schneider Electric’s platform for managing and controlling low voltage loads

Minimising time spent on specifying individual items of equipment and allowing more focus on maximising overall system efficiency

LONDON, UK, 16 February 2021 – RS Components (RS), a trading brand of Electrocomponents plc (LSE: ECM), a global omni-channel solutions partner for industrial customers and suppliers, has added TeSys™ island from Schneider Electric to its portfolio. This object-oriented digital load management solution has huge potential in a modern industrial automation context. It can deal with motors and other electrical loads (such as pumps, relays, programmable logic controllers, conveyors) up to an 80A rating.

Through its unique object-oriented approach with an array of 30 different predetermined application-specific functions that may be utilised, this platform provides a straightforward method for implementing and configuring complex industrial systems. Engineers can effectively offload much of the effort involved in the defining and commissioning of each constituent electro-mechanical component within the system. This makes the hardware installation phase much quicker and easier to complete – thereby reducing the associated costs, as well as shortening the time before systems can be put into action.

Through TeSys island, supervisors of industrial systems can gain access to key diagnostic data. This ensures that maximum operational performance is always upheld, in addition to helping with preventive maintenance and fault identification. TeSys island is compatible with all the main automation fieldbus IOs – including Modbus TCP, Ethernet/IP, PROFINET, and PROFIBUS. The platform can be integrated with Schneider Electric’s EcoStruxure Machine Expert, plus Rockwell Automation’s Studio 5000 and Siemens’ TIA portal and other proprietary third-party automation systems. To further support automation engineers using the TeSys island platform, RS has also launched its own dedicated online configuration tool. It is possible, through this, to assign the correct variable speed drives and direct/soft starters to meet specific application requirements.

RS is now shipping a range of Schneider Electric’s TeSys island products in the EMEA region, including motor startersmonitoring relays and safety IO modules.
