    Power Control Integration Services

    Switchgear integration – using synergies efficiently

    In many industrial plants, it is necessary to integrate the medium-voltage power supply switchgear into a complete automation system.

    Power Control Integration Services enable electrical switchgear – featuring devices for protection and control functions (IEDs, Intelligent Electronic Devices) based on standard IEC 61850 – to be homogeneously integrated into the SIMATIC PCS 7 process control system. This significantly increases the degree of integration of the entire plant.


    Standard IEC 61850 describes an Ethernet-based station controller protocol for protection systems and instrumentation and control in electrical switchgear of medium and high-voltage technology.

    IEC 61850 has also established itself as the outstanding communication standard in the worldwide switchgear automation market.

    Our products make trouble-free integration possible.

    Your benefits from the applications

    Diverse connection options

    Power Control Integration Services offer flexible integration into existing small plants via software as well as performance-oriented integration into existing systems by using additional hardware. This is done independently of the manufacturer of the protection devices by applying the IEC 61850 standards.

    Easy integration:

    The use of a gateway, controller or software library in conjunction with the SIMATIC PCS 7 Power Control Library enables easy and consistent integration of IEDs – from the field level to the operator station. Furthermore, both SIEMENS switchgear and protection devices as well as devices from third-party manufacturers can be integrated.
