The launch of Elexant controllers is a testimony to nVent’s ongoing commitment to expand its capabilities and create solutions that address the safety, energy efficiency and reliability requirements of our customers today and tomorrow. Industry 4.0 and the Internet of Things are driven by automation and data exchange, in which interactive system communications play a vitally important role. The Elexant family is designed to collect and integrate all data into one network and to provide customers easy-to-use interfaces and full visibility of their assets. This allows them to use data-driven insights to make more informed decisions and protect what matters most to them.
The new smart monitoring and control solutions will feature intuitive designs for an enhanced user experience. Flexible communication options will help customers to easily integrate Elexant controllers into their existing facility, allowing open communication between systems. As a result, operators can achieve a lower cost of ownership and improve reliability, making operations in the field easier and more productive than ever before. The Elexant solutions will have international approvals for usage in projects around the world.
