Schneider Electric rebrands ION products to Square D
The inclusion of ION products to PowerLogics portfolio of advanced energy and power management solutions gives energy suppliers and consumers access to the industrys broadest range of products and services designed to control the cost and quality of their energy,says Gregg Morasca, Powerlogic sales and marketing director, Schneider Electric North America. The union of two global leaders in enterprise energy and power management provides us with a wealth of opportunities to introduce new and existing PowerLogic customers to the outstanding quality, reliability and service synonymous with the Square D brand.
Morasca also added that integrating both organizations and their respective product and service lines into a single range of energy and power management offerings demonstrates Schneider Electrics continuing pursuit of technological innovation as the company enhances its leadership position as a provider of energy efficient solutions. Customer needs have remained the companys highest priority throughout the integration and rebranding process, and all the past benefits of PowerLogic and ION solutions remain, he says.
The companys energy and power management systems provide organizations of virtually any size with monitoring, control, automation and reporting capabilities to lower energy costs, improve reliability and increase efficiency. PowerLogic solutions are designed to answer the needs of diverse applications from power quality management through energy cost control, operations management, billing support, distributed generation and many others.
