COPA-DATA’s HMI/SCADA software zenon 7 offers full Multi-Touch support, ergonomic enhancements, tools for efficient working as well as maximum performance and security. Due to the anticipated legal specifications for Energy and Environmental Management Systems, additional focus has been placed on the monitoring and management of energy consumption. The zenon Product Family for integrated, ergonomic automation solutions consists of four individual and, at the same time, completely integrated products: the zenon Analyzer for Dynamic Reporting, the SCADA system zenon Supervisor, the HMI system zenon Operator and zenon Logic, the integrated PLC system with an IEC 61131-3 programming environment. zenon 7 thereby covers the complete range of automation from sensor to ERP. Complete reusability and continuity allow for efficient engineering, easy handling and a marked saving on time and cost. Rising energy costs and legal specifications, such as DIN EN ISO 16001 for energy management, require industrial companies to calculate their energy consumption, to record data and evaluate it and use energy more efficiently on a long-term basis. Companies can record, display, analyze and archive their energy consumption as well as the changes in energy use. Analyzer enables both predefined and freely-configurable reports to be created for energy management. Furthermore, the Energy Management System provides the possibility of optimizing energy consumption by means of sophisticated energy trend calculations. Companies can calculate consumption for a defined time period by means of current trends, and then react – either automatically or manually.
