Automatically detecting the structure of the distribution network, Harting’s DIN EN 16001 based intelligent energy distributors also measure and record consumption levels. As a result they enable condition monitoring of the network segment without the need for any additional installation or programming. An industrial computer is used for visualization and collection of measurement data and acts as a communication interface to the Ethernet. The structure of a network in a system is detected and displayed by means of intelligent distributors. The development of consumption levels is analyzed and stored for economy measures and progression analysis. Selective activation points can be placed at the energy distributors to avoid peaks or to save energy during production breaks or at weekends, for example.
