With SIAPP you use the performance of the SICAM A8000 CPU, without needing your own hardware and at the same time you have full access to all RTU data without a physical interface.

By the way you enjoy further advantages:

  • Rugged hardware
  • An extensive RTU functionality
  • Tested communication protocols

Where SIAPP is used?

SICAM A8000 device series is used along the entire energy supply chain for control, remote control and automation. SIAPP now enables additional functionalities to customize the SICAM A8000 specifically for your applications. You can develop your own apps such as for:

  • Transformer controller
  • Optimization of energy storage systems
  • Using the weather forecast to control regenerative
    energy feed-ins
  • Cost optimisation in energy trading

How to use SIAPP?

  • Write the code for your special application
  • Load the code into a software container
  • Load the software container into the CP-8031 or CP-8050 using SICAM Web
