Power management:Configuration Example for B.Data in Connection with SIMATIC WinCC
Energy costs are a considerable cost factor in many companies. Optimizing energy consumption may clearly reduce this cost factor.
This example project shall introduce to you the energy management system “B.Data” using an example configuration and facilitate your first steps.
B.Data offers the functionalities necessary for a comprehensive view on energy management. The interface management, configurable by the user, on the one hand supports the current standards, such as OPC, ODBC, ASCII or XML, and on the other hand offers direct interfaces to Siemens products such as WinCC, for which a configuration synchronization of the data points is supported.
On the PC “BDATA”, B.Data is installed and operated in a basic configuration. B.Data is here, via the acquisition server, also connected to the “WINCC” PC with a data point of the compressed archive of SIMATIC WinCC.
