A wide range of functions for energy management on the control system level: SIMATIC powerrate for SIMATIC PCS 7
The SIMATIC powerrate Add-on integrates all three steps of Siemens’ energy management within the process control system. SIMATIC powerrate seamlessly integrates into SIMATIC PCS 7, records relevant energy data from the field using additional function blocks and prepares it for further processing. Ready-made faceplates, are available for visualization and processing of energy data, with minimal configuration required. Excel functions provide automated allocation of energy consumption/costs to cost centers, production plants or batches, and reduce the burden of reporting considerably.
Maximum transparency through consistent, uninterrupted data acquisition
The energy data measured by intelligent sensors and actuators are collected by SIMATIC PCS 7, processed and finally saved in the standard PCS 7 archive. The information is visualized on operator stations and additional analysis can also be performed. The combination of energy data and process data in the same system allows simplified calculation of energy specific production data.
