The 7KN Powercenter 3000 V1.2 IoT data platform is a digitalization solution for companies of all sizes offering them an easy entry into energy management according to DIN EN ISO 50001 and access to status information of communication-capable devices from the SENTRON portfolio and other Modbus devices.

The 7KN Powercenter 3000 with connection to various evaluation systems is suitable for location-independent monitoring of the state and condition of assemblies in small and medium sized enterprises (SME) as well as corporations with worldwide activities. 
It allows analyses to define benchmarks and to identify saving potentials across different locations. With the integrated plug&operate connection to MindSphere and other cloud systems the 7KN Powercenter 3000 makes an easy entry into new business models possible, e.g. in terms of cloud-based services. 


  • Detection and bundling of individual status, statistical and measured values into intelligent packets (smart data) with few efforts.
  • Integration of lower-level, communication-capable SENTRON measuring devices, SENTRON MCCBs and ACBs as well as other devices via Modbus TCP via Modbus TCP/RTU Gateways.
  • Transmission of data packets to an integrated web interface, local power monitoring systems as SENTRON powermanager and to MindSphere applications like SENTRON powermind.
  • Data security when transmitting to the cloud by encrypted communication, IP-based access control and further security measures.
  • High system availability, thanks to status information, alarm signals in case of exceptional circumstances by email and state information visible at any time.
  • Location-independent analyses for definition of benchmarks and identification of savings potentials.
  • New business models for companies in the form of own services, which can be offered via the MindSphere.

New features of POWERCENTER 3000 V1.2:

  • Periodic and spontaneous export of energy values as a csv-file on a file share or via email.
  • Supporting other Modbus devices outside from SENTRON portfolio.
