Digital transparency made real in low voltage
How you can save energy with intelligent power distribution
Did you know that 40 percent of all power is consumed by buildings? Or that about 30 percent of this energy consumption could be prevented? It’s time to make it transparent. For sustainability reasons too. Because saving energy means reducing cost and simultaneously reducing CO₂ emissions. And one way is by digitalizing low-voltage power distribution. That’s where the SENTRON concept comes into play. It’s made up of perfectly harmonized hardware, software, and apps. The SENTRON digital ecosystem is an extremely economical solution that represents an intelligent system for power distribution in low voltage.
How to achieve digital transparency for your power distribution
Take advantage of the data from measuring, switching, and protection devices to optimize energy usage in your electrical infrastructure.
SENTRON digital provides you with the perfect foundation that you can build on step by step to do this. Watch our short animated video to see how it works in actual practice. It shows how you can benefit from greater transparency on the low-voltage level. Have a look!

Energy consumption in focus with power monitoring
Power monitoring maintains the transparency of energy flows which reduces costs and boosts reliability. Only by monitoring consumption can you sustainably reduce it and make your contribution to meeting global climate goals. Transparency through power monitoring is always the foundation for any kind of operational energy management or regular energy audits. Digitalization allows you to monitor your electric infrastructure to a degree never before possible and make energy data transparent, both of which are important ways to save energy.
To be effective, power monitoring systems need to be efficiently planned and implemented. During operation, our optimally coordinated SENTRON hardware and software solutions enable targeted data acquisition and analysis.
Everything you need – from planning to operation
Energy efficiency made realThe realization of operational energy management pursues the objective of continually optimizing energy consumption. To do so, energy data must be recorded, and respective efficiency measurements must be developed continuously. By permanently collecting data and visualizing energy flows, potentials can be identified, and energy cost can be reduced effectively. The improvement of the energy data transparency therefore becomes a key prerequisite to successful energy management.
Ready for standard-compliant energy management
For power-intensive companies in particular, it’s important to be able to obtain data and analyses with as little effort as possible in order to control energy efficiency and create standard-compliant energy reports. Digitally supported electric power distribution makes this process much easier. The SENTRON powermanager power monitoring software displays important characteristics on a clearly organized dashboard, analyzes energy consumption and the load profile, and identifies peak loads. Cost-cutting measures can be derived immediately, and faults can be quickly located – to boost your awareness of energy consumption and lower your costs. The reporting feature is especially interesting to power managers. ISO 50001-compliant energy reports can be generated almost at the press of a button.
Data based process optimization made realDigitalization of low-voltage power distribution and the intelligent use of data enable additional applications, such as predictive maintenance and the management of widespread plants. With collected data, energy consumptions can be reduced – and service and maintenance of the electric infrastructure optimized at the same time.
Always informed, thanks to condition monitoring
Digitally supported electrical power distribution also contributes to efficient maintenance management by recording and evaluating condition data. This applies, for example, to the testing of circuit breakers. With the health indicator feature integrated in our 3VA2-type communication-capable SENTRON circuit breakers, you can learn everything about its status remotely – from a PC or mobile device, regardless of location. The IoT data platform 7KN Powercenter 3000 can be configured so that an alert is sent via email whenever there is a deviation from a circuit breaker’s predefined parameters. The maintenance team is then immediately informed of exactly what needs to be done.
Campus management – for high transparency
In widespread building complexes, so-called campus structures, as for example in an airport or seaport, office campus, or centrally managed areas with mixed uses, keeping an eye on all plant sections of power distribution is a big challenge for facility managers. The safety and protection of persons and plants is clearly in focus here. With the SENTRON software solutions, a quick error localization and remote access to all data are possible. At any given moment, you have access to the status information of your electrical equipment and the exact localization. In the event of an alarm or of predetermined events, you receive a push notification to your PC or any other mobile end device.
Power monitoring in a variety of industries made realWhether you operate a small, medium-sized, or large company – in many industries, daily operations are associated with high energy consumption and the corresponding costs. Monitoring your energy flows and consumption is the key to a reliable power supply and sustainable energy savings. Find out what you can achieve in a wide range of industries and applications with SENTRON digitalization solutions.
