In process plant applications, the ability for operators to monitor motor performance and further create opportunities to enhance overall energy efficiency is paramount. With energy consumption forming one of the largest operating expenses in process plants, optimising motor energy consumption is a profitable starting point for any kind of energy cost reduction initiative.

Simocode pro from Siemens is a flexible and modular motor control system for low voltage motors that not only enables dynamic monitoring of motor performance to improve energy efficiency, but also aids in the prevention of costly downtimes by providing smart insights for early detection.

Offering easy and direct connection to automation systems such as the Simatic PCS7 from Siemens via Profibus, Profinet, Modbus RTU or Ethernet IP, the Simocode pro implements all motor protection and control functions, provides operational, diagnostic and statistical data and organises the communication between automation system and motor feeder.

From planning and installation, through to ongoing operation and service of your plant or system, the Simocode pro is a solution to increase process control quality and reduce costs at the same time.
