SIMATIC S7-1500 Block for Integrating Modbus TCP Devices into Energy Suite

  • Entry
  • Associated product(s)
The "Modbus_TCP_energyAdv" block reads the energy data of a Modbus TCP device (e.g., SENTRON PAC 3200) via the Modbus interface. The energy data of the Modbus TCP device is then stored in the Energy Suite data structure to make it available in Energy Suite in its entirety. Introduction
Introduction
SIMATIC Energy Suite provides the option to read energy data relevant to accounting, such as power and voltage values. However, the program blocks for advanced energy data added by TIA Portal V14 SP1 can only be generated using devices that are supported by the Energy Support Library (EnSL).
You cannot integrate other Modbus TCP devices into Energy Suite by default. The library described here contains a block that enables you to integrate energy data of Modbus TCP devices into Energy Suite.

Mode of operation
The "Modbus_TCP_energyAdv" block reads the energy data of a Modbus TCP device (e.g., SENTRON PAC 3200) via the Modbus interface. The energy data of the Modbus TCP device is then stored in the Energy Suite data structure to make it available in Energy Suite in its entirety.

The supplied documentation shows you how to integrate a SENTRON PAC 3200 into an Energy Suite program. You can use the additionally available energy data for your visualization.
The "LModbus_TCP_energyAdv" library provides you with the block for integration into your TIA Portal project.
