Atlanta – Siemens Energy & Automation Inc. introduced two Simatic power management software solutions to the Simatic WinCC visualization family and Simatic PCS 7 control family: Simatic WinCC powerrate and Simatic PCS 7 powerrate are the latest additions.
Both powerrate solutions are said to provide a uniform power management solution that enables users to locate potential savings by examining the power behavior of different operating units and obtaining information on the plant status. By consolidating energy usage data into a single software solution, users get a timely and comprehensive view of detailed information on energy consumption.
These new power management software solutions acquire power data from switching, protection and measuring devices, such as the Sentrom PAC3200 multifunctional measuring instrument that measures the characteristic values and power values of loads in industrial and purpose-built buildings.
Additionally, the powerrate solutions are said to help minimize training costs by providing operators with a familiar system environment for comprehensive data management and visualization. Individual functions, such as measured value acquisition and processing, cost center management and load management are implemented via ready-made S7 modules, faceplates, and Excel macros.
