SIMATIC Energy Suite - Getting Started
In many companies energy requirement represents a high cost factor and it is also a black box, where only the total consumption and the total costs are known. In times of increasing energy costs, legal measures and the increasing significance of environmentally friendly production processes, energy management becomes increasingly important in production.
In order to guarantee efficient energy management (in accordance with ISO 50001), it is therefore necessary to create transparency of the energy consumption of your production. Only when the cause is known, can counter measures be introduced and costs be saved.
SIMATIC Energy Suite gives you the option to acquire, prepare and archive your energy data appropriately through the integration in the TIA Portal V14. The simplified configuration and the automatic generation of the energy program reduces the configuration effort considerably.
In this Getting Started, you find a detailed step-by-step instruction of what configuration steps are necessary in order to process energy data further with energy-measuring components.
More information on visualization options as well as for data evaluation are also part of the documentation.
Apart from the documentation and the example project, there is a library available with already preconfigured hardware components.
