SIMATIC S7 Library for the Simple Configuration of PROFIenergy
Even when production has been stopped, the sensors and actuators distributed in the plant consume considerable amounts of energy in idle mode as well. This "standby power" is to be measured and reduced using simple means.
PROFIenergy is a protocol defined by the PROFINET user organization. It provides the prerequisites for a vendor-independent system that can be generally used to switch off individual loads or entire production units flexibly, on short notice and intelligently. Furthermore, specific consumption measurement parameters can be read out. SIEMENS supports PROFIenergy with various automation components in the automation system SIMATIC S7 and SIMATIC HMI.
This block library includes the tested code with well-defined interfaces for simple integration and configuration of the PROFIenergy function. They can be used as a basis for your task to be implemented.
