Power Management Software Solutions Examine Behavior, Improve Monitoring
Siemens Energy & Automation Inc. recently announced the introduction of two new SIMATIC® power management software solutions for the production and process industries. Simatic WinCC powerrate and Simatic PCS 7 powerrate are the latest additions to the Simatic WinCC visualization family and Simatic PCS 7 control family as premium add ons.
Both powerrate solutions 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 Sentron PAC3200 power monitoring device that precisely measures the characteristic values and power values of loads in industrial and purpose-built buildings.
