On this Ask the Expert we discuss how energy efficiency can start right inside the control cabinet. Siemens explains how their products in the control cabinet, more specifically the 3VA2 Circuit Breaker, like all circuit breakers the 3VA2 adds protection, but it's also a monitoring device that provides data about energy consumption. This is valuable data for predictive maintenance and condition monitoring, whilst also embracing Siemens's approach to sustainability.
