Siemens has launched its Simatic Energy Suite engineering tool for energy management in automation systems. Integrated as an option package within the TIA Portal V14 (totally integrated automation) engineering framework, the Simatic Energy Suite efficiently links energy management with automation and brings energy transparency to production.
Companies can record production-level energy consumption data, display it live, evaluate it and correlate it with production data. With a seamless interface to higher-level software such as the Simatic Energy Manager PRO or the cloud-based Energy Analytics Services, the Simatic Energy Suite can be expanded into an energy management system across all company sites certified to ISO 50001 – which covers every stage from purchasing and planning through to the financial controlling of energy.
