SIEMENS SENTRON powermanager: energy-management software

SIEMENS SENTRON powermanager

The SENTRON powermanager software is suitable for applications in commercial buildings and small and medium-size industrial buildings – where either no SIMATIC automation system is being used, or where it is desirable to separate automation and power distribution. Even with the SENTRON powermanager standard software package, it is easy to implement an energy management system with functions for providing and analyzing as well as monitoring various measured values. Additional customer-specific requirements can be met with option packages. With SENTRON powermanager, you can expand your project later to include more functions and devices without losing any data, thanks to a flexible licensing concept.


Power monitoring software for the SENTRON-based power monitoring system with the following main points:
• to identify savings potential
• to reduce power costs
• to ensure power availability


• Transparency of power flows
• Exact knowledge of the consumption profile
• Increased power efficiency
• Optimization of power supply contracts
• Compliance with contractual terms
• Allocation of power costs to cost centers
• Optimization of plant maintenance
• Identification of critical plant conditions
• Available languages: German, English, Spanish, Portuguese
• Support of the various device communication interfaces (Modbus RTU, Modbus TCP)
• Status display of devices


The product offers a standard power monitoring solution which provides the user with the following basic functions:
• Collection of measured quantities from the devices
• Presentation of the measured quantities from the devices in a predefined standard view for the 7KT PAC1500, 7KM
PAC3100, 7KM PAC3200, 7KM PAC4200 measuring devices and 3WL/3VL circuit breakers
• Free presentation of measured quantities possible, including those from non-Siemens devices using generic Modbus drivers
• Archiving of measured quantities
• Monitoring of status and limits, with generation of corresponding signals
• Load curve display for visualizing the archived data and online data
• Cost center reports based on predefined rates and the archived consumption data
• OPC server
• Configuration of the system including user management
• Load monitoring for complying with power limits
• Virtual computation

System configuration

• Integration of measuring devices by means of predefined device templates for the 7KT/7KM PAC measuring devices and the 3WL/3VL circuit breakers
• Easy integration of existing Modbus-enabled measuring devices
• Communication through Standard Ethernet
• Integration of devices with RS485 interface (ModbusRTU) through Modbus gateway, e.g. the 7KM PAC4200 can be used
as the gateway

System requirements

Hardware requirements
• Processor: Intel core 2 (or better)
• RAM: at least 2 GB
• Hard disk: at least 20 GB (depending on the number of devices)
• Graphics: VGA with at least 1280 x 1024 pixels and 16-bit color intensity
