SIMATIC powerrate contains the following functions:
- Energy acquisition (power values, work values) independent of the used hardware
- Faceplates for displaying the energy values
- Assigning energy values to batches
- Using standard mechanisms for archiving the measured values
- Exporting the acquired energy and batch data according to MS Excel
- Assigning the energy data to cost centers and evaluation in form of predefined reports
- Basic functionality for Operator Control and Monitoring of general switches and PAC3200/PAC4200
- Load management for up to 100 consumers
- Faceplate for the configuration and Operator Control and Monitoring of the load management
