Engineering tool gives manufacturer’s energy data transparency

15 July 2016

Siemens UK & Ireland announced the launch of its SIMATIC Energy Suite engineering tool for energy management in automation systems.

Included as an option within the Totally Integrated Automation (TIA) Portal V14 framework, the SIMATIC Energy Suite enables companies to correlate energy consumption values in production plants with their automation processes. It is certified to ISO 50001 – covering every stage from purchasing and planning through to financial controlling of energy.

Companies can record production-level energy consumption data, display it "live", evaluate it and correlate it with production data. With seamless interfacing to higher-level software, such as the SIMATIC Energy Manager PRO, the SIMATIC Energy Suite can be expanded into an energy management system across all company sites. 

SIMATIC Energy Suite is compatible with energy-measuring components from the SIMOCODE and SIRIUS series (low-voltage controls), SENTRON (low-voltage energy distribution), as well as SIMATIC and SINAMICS (automation and drives) from Siemens. Third-party measuring instruments can be incorporated by means of open interfaces and input modules of the SIMATIC S7-1500 controller. 

Simon Keogh, Factory Automation General Manager - Siemens UK & Ireland comments: “We are always looking for new ways to assist our customers to grow their businesses, and the addition of SIMATIC Energy Suite to the TIA Portal will help our users gain competitive advantage through continuously reduced energy costs. 

“Our ongoing investment in the SIMATIC product range, and our wider industrial portfolio, demonstrates our commitment to improving manufacturing processes now, and in the future.”
