End-users are digitising, and electrical engineers need to digitise along with them or companies may find themselves unable to fulfil the needs of their customers. To match changing customer expectations, electrical contractors need to get trained on what these products are, the benefits and how to install them to avoid being left behind.The opportunities digitisation and innovation present to the electrical industry are emerging fast. These include energy management, predictive and preventive maintenance, service contracts and reduced running costs for the client. Efficiency and costWorking with the latest technologies brings about huge efficiency gains for Electrical Contractors, ultimately boosting their competitive edge. For example, working on boards with plug-in components, such as Isobar P, cuts wiring time in half. It also allows Electrical Contractors to leverage connected technologies to monitor instantly the health and energy usage of their distribution boards, via simply connected software packages i.e. Facility Expert. This means savings on installation time and then, through greater connectivity, ongoing savings for their customer.Furthermore, digital advancements have brought changes to product configurators. If you’ve designed a system with different connected components, Electrical Contractors no longer need to spend time speaking to a third party or looking up each product to ensure they are all compatible. Thanks to digitalisation incorporated by Schneider Electric, Electrical Contractors can download a simple app, connect to the board and quickly check the compatibility of different components.
