Sales Release/Delivery Release: Power Monitoring Software powermanager V3.4

  • Entry
  • Associated product(s)
The modern and intuitive power monitoring software powermanager offers along with the measuring devices 7KT/7KM PAC an easy access to a power management solution. The software supports small and medium-sized enterprises in the industry and infrastructure sector to enhance the energy transparency and to reduce energy costs.

powermanager V3.4

With the power monitoring software powermanager V3.4 all measured values are collected, which are required for power consumption optimization and corresponding cost reductions. This includes energy and power values as well as electrical characteristics such as current, voltage and power factor. Besides electrical measuring values also non electrical energy values can be integrated to the system either via pulse measurement or dedicated measuring devices featuring communication interfaces. The values are not only displayed, but can also be monitored and archived for future evaluation.

For optimization of power demand values, the data can be visualized and compared via a trend view of the load profile.
Evaluations can be done easily with predefined report templates as cost center allocation, variance analysis, energy evaluations as well as a duration curve report. The report handling can also be access via a standard Web browser. User defined reports can be created as well. Sending an automated email with the final report is another highlight of the user friendliness of the software.
By use of the load monitoring functionality power demand limits can be observed and if required switching recommendations can be given. The calculation and display of KPIs (Key performance indicators) can be executed as easy as displaying the values with dashboards.
Powermanager is the optimized technical basis for a power management system in accordance with ISO 50001 norm, of course with the certificate of conformity.

  • Independent power monitoring software.
  • Operation using a PC and measuring devices with Ethernet connection.
  • Expandable from the simple standard application to a fully flexible customer solution.
  • Fully scalable with regard to the number of devices and the software's functions.
  • Ensures optimum integration of measuring and power quality devices 7KT/7KM PAC, as well as circuit breakers 3WL/3VL/3VA, but also any other Modbus device.
  • This version consists of all functions of the previous versions and service packs.

Functional enhancements in Version 3.4:
  • Expansion of the number of fully integrated 7KT/7KM PAC devices:
    - PAC3200T (start of delivery scheduled for 2nd quarter 2017)
    - PAC module  I(N), I(Diff), Analog Input (start of delivery scheduled for 2nd quarter 2017)
    - branch circuit monitoring system 7KT PAC1200 (for IEC applications; already released)
  • Support of branch circuit monitoring system SEM3 (for UL applications only as of today)
  • Expansion of internal reporting engine by KPI-, Sankey- und Top10 consumer reports, also available via web browser, pdf/xls format
  • Expansion of 3WL, 3VL, and 3VA breaker data visualization (state, messages)
  • Simplification of OPC setup process


  • From the release of the new version the basic license “powermanager basic package” and the Trial Version will be delivered with the new version V3.4
  • Already existing licenses (basic packages, device packages, option packages) for V3.0/V3.1/V3.2/V3.3 can still be used for this new version. For current users of V3.0/3.1/V3.2/V3.3 the upgrade to V3.4 is free of charge. The upgrade to V3.4 is possible for all versions from V3.0.
  • Systems with V2.0 need to be upgraded to V3.0 first, before an upgrade to V3.4 is possible (upgraded projects have restrictions related to the languages of the previous project).
  • The free trial license is still available, however cannot be used on systems with previously installed trial licenses of V3.0/3.1/V3.2/V3.3.
