Energy management system for industry expanded and engineering improved
The new Simatic WinCC/B.Data V5.2 SP1 version features a data connection wizard which facilitates easy and efficient linking of energy measuring points and WinCCarchive tags to B.Data. The wizard also supports the user in acquiring data from various sources such as WinCC, OPC or FTP. Installation is significantly faster and easier. Less experienced users are supported by default parameters, a standardized setup process, tooltips, simple configuration even for multi-user systems, as well as improved documentation.
More experienced users benefit from the greater degree of freedom offered for selecting settings by the expert set-up mode. The new WinCC/B.Data version 5.2 SP1 not only supports WinCC V7.0 SP2 but also the supervisory control and data acquisition Scada system Simatic WinCC RT Professional V11 SP1, which is used to connect the energy management system to the runtime system of the TIA Portal engineering framework.
With the Simatic WinCC/B.Data energy management system, which now also supports Microsoft Excel 2010 and Windows 7, manufacturing companies can optimize their energy costs and transparency at management level, from purchasing to planning and controlling. Seamless energy and materials accounting in power generation and consumption systems enhances energy efficiency and lowers energy costs.
