New IoT data platform facilitates entry into cloud-based energy management

New IoT data platform facilitates entry into cloud-based energy management.

New IoT data platform facilitates entry into cloud-based energy management.

For digital companies, the continuous acquisition of energy flows in industrial plants and buildings creates the most vital foundation for higher energy efficiency and reliability, as well as lower costs and CO2 emissions. The communication-capable measuring and protection devices from the Sentron portfolio from Siemens detect electrical values such as current, voltage and energy, right down to the consumer level, relaying this data to higher-level systems via standard protocols such as Profinet, Profibus and Modbus. They comply with the requirements of energy audits and to operational energy management according to ISO 50001 and ISO 50003.
With the IoT data platform 7KN powercenter3000, the data can be centrally collected and transmitted in individually adjustable cycles directly into open IoT operating systems such as MindSphere. Via relevant cloud applications, comprehensive analyses are possible, even across various locations. All values and statistics of power distribution can be accessed at any time, and independent of location. This enables management via remote control and preventive maintenance. Alarm signals help to respond immediately to faults and to pinpoint errors quickly and easily. Operators, switchboard engineers, as well as qualified electricians can also enter the consulting and solution business with their own services based on cloud platforms such as MindSphere and thus build up new business models.
