Holistic energy management
More energy efficiency with SIMATIC PCS 7 and SIMATIC Energy Management
In regard to rising energy costs, limited raw material resources and global warming due to CO2 emissions, the efficient use of energy is becoming increasingly important. Even those who want to reduce costs, increase their competitiveness and meet legal requirements know that integrated energy management is indispensable for production. To make the right decisions at the right time, you need to keep an eye on the energy consumption of your entire business. Benefit from scalable systematic solutions: from basic power monitoring to integrated energy management – with SIMATIC PCS 7 and SIMATIC Energy Management!
Consistent energy managementOperational energy management in industrial plants provides a key contribution to improving the cost situation and thus the competitiveness of a company. It is therefore an essential aspect of Totally Integrated Automation – TIA. The energy flows in production plants are made transparent so that existing energy saving potentials can be identified, analyzed and finally utilized. The inclusion of energy-relevant consumption data from the SIMATIC PCS 7 process control system in energy management makes a decisive contribution to the more efficient operation of plants. If you want to keep your energy costs under control in the long term and are already heading for the digital future today, you can rely on production-related energy monitoring, which can be expanded to include company-wide energy analyses.
Scalable SIMATIC software for energy management. With SIMATIC Energy Management, Siemens offers you an extensive ISO-50001-certified, scalable product and solution portfolio – from energy data acquisition at field level to enterprise-wide energy analysis at management level. SIMATIC Energy Suite as an option of the TIA portal efficiently links energy management with automation and thus brings energy transparency into production.
SIMATIC PCS 7 supplies the SIMATIC Energy Suite with all energy-relevant consumption data of a plant. The SIMATIC PCS 7 Industry Library also provides extensive functions for monitoring and controlling the energy consumption of a plant. This means that the performance limits agreed with the energy supply companies can be adhered to. SIMATIC PCS 7 PowerControl enables you to combine process automation and automation of electrical switchgear for medium voltages in the range from 4 to 30 kV in a single control system.
