SENTRON measuring devices: Your basis for power monitoring
Transparent power consumption improves energy efficiency
SENTRON measuring devices and communication-capable switching gear and protection devices form the basis for digitalization in low-voltage power distribution. Smart software then analyzes what these devices record. Together, they pave the way for systematic power monitoring, and thus for regular energy audits and an operational power management system in accordance with ISO 50001 and ISO 50003. That means you always have your power consumption in view. In addition to saving costs by optimizing consumption, you can also enjoy a more fail-safe system by monitoring your power grids and network quality in infrastructure and industrial facilities.

Your entry into professional power monitoringWith an power monitoring system, you make energy consumption visible and can assign it to individual consumers – an important lever for optimizing energy costs. The system is based on the communication-capable devices in the SENTRON portfolio. These devices record energy values such as current and voltage and communicate them to a higher-level energy monitoring system for data analysis and evaluation. The 7KN Powercenter 3000 serves as an ideal introduction to digitalization and achieving full transparency over your energy data. The 7KT/7KM PAC measuring devices form the basis for all types of energy management. The communication-capable measuring devices measure and monitor electrical and thermal KPIs as well as energy consumption and are supplemented by the 3VA molded case circuit breakers and 3WA air circuit breakers.
The advantages of our power monitoring system
Standards-compliant and audit-proof
The 7KN Powercenter 3000 TÜV-certified energy monitoring system is ideal for small and medium-sized enterprises in industry and infrastructure. It’s the basis for regular energy audits and energy management according to the ISO 50001 and ISO 50003 standards. These standards govern the introduction and implementation of operational energy management with compulsory verification of continual improvement of energy efficiency – which is the prerequisite for achieving audit compliance.
From an energy monitoring system to an energy management system
Using SENTRON measuring devices as a basis, you can expand your energy monitoring system into a comprehensive energy management system with SENTRON digital. Discover SENTRON powermanager, for example: it provides an overview of all relevant low-voltage energy data from your different locations, ISO 50001-compliant energy reports, alarming, and notifications, as well as continuous monitoring for detecting critical system states early on.

All measuring devices at a glance
Compact, clearly presented, solution-oriented – the Quick Selection Guide for power monitoring and power management provides an overview of all measuring devices and additional information about the appropriate software solutions.
Step by step to improved energy efficiencySENTRON energy meters are easy to operate and are the ideal way to start monitoring all relevant values in your AC system. You’ll be able to record your power consumption with accurate time and cost details. MID-compliant versions of the meter are also available, forming an effective and cost-efficient solution for recharging power consumption costs. An illuminated LC display lets you check the measured values directly on the device. For further processing and evaluation, they are then transmitted via a range of communication interfaces to higher-level power monitoring systems such as those from Siemens.
The multifunction measuring devices in the SENTRON portfolio are genuine specialists in measured value acquisition. They precisely, reproducibly, and reliably measure the energy values for infeeds, outgoing feeders, or individual loads, and let you accurately record power consumption in TN, TT, and IT networks. They are used wherever electric power is distributed, in other words, in switchgear and control panels, infeeds, and outgoing feeders. They not only provide important information about the electrical power distribution but also key measured values for assessing the system states and power quality. For further processing of the measured data the devices come with manifold communication options for smoother integration in higher-level automation and power management systems. Their range of applications extends from industrial applications in the process and manufacturing industry to office buildings, shopping centers, and critical infrastructure in hospitals and data centers. Their functionality is also assured in wet and dusty environments.
Specialists in measured value acquisition
SENTRON 7KM PAC measuring devices are easy to install, and accurately and comprehensively measure the energy values for infeeds, outgoing feeders, and consumption by individual components. They create transparency in low-voltage power distribution, supply important readings to assess plant condition and power quality, and also form the basis for a fail-safe power supply. The devices can also be integrated into higher-level automation and power management systems via a range of communication options.
Multichannel current measuring systems are a cost-efficient solution for transparent display of power consumption levels. They allow you to precisely determine the power required in each installation branch. Energy data such as voltage, currents, and power can be visualized in a web interface or in the powermanager power monitoring software. This makes it possible to compare individual loads directly and to identify current peaks. The portfolio includes the 7KT PAC1200 multichannel current measuring system for the final circuit and the SENTROIN SEM3 multichannel current measuring system for the main power distribution.
SENTRON circuit breakers with measuring and communication features – protect and monitor final circuits
To optimize the monitoring and control of the electrical energy distribution, we provide you with a portfolio of flexible and communicative circuit breakers. The measuring- and communication-capable circuit breakers 5SL COM collect information on the status of the breaker and incidents in the power circuit. With auxiliary switches/fault signal contacts, the standard circuit breakers 5SY, 5SP4, and 5SL as well as the residual current circuit breaker 5SV3 and the FI circuit breakers 5SU1/5SV1 can be expanded with measuring and communication function – all with low effort and space requirements.
Communication-capable devices can be wirelessly connected to the data transceiver 7KN Powercenter 3000. That collects measured values and transfers them to mobile devices, PCs, or superordinate IoT interfaces for visualization and evaluation, where they are provided to cloud applications. Transparency and plant safety are increased.
