PACTECH / ICP DAS (EC17W35_11, by Tomy Lai )

Industry 4.0 is based on the Internet of Things (IoT) that incorporates the technological concept of communicating and exchanging information between all facilities and has brought the manufacturing industry to a new era. The PMC-5200 series Industrial IoT Power Meter Concentrators developed by ICP DAS is a perfect starting point to facilitate the vision of energy monitoring and management applications in the Industry 4.0 age. The PMC-5200 series provides flexible integration with the ICP DAS power meter and features various functions, such as measurement of power consumption by devices, a power data logger, energy usage analysis, power demand management, and alarm notification. The devices also support various communication protocols for seamless integration with back-end SCADA/MES/IT/IoT systems. This means that an administrator can monitor the status of the power consumption by each device and perform a statistical analysis of the power information, so that the overall efficiency and energy consumption for the factory can be improved, thereby saving or reducing costs on utility bills. All of these features make the PMC-5200 series the perfect concentrators for power meters in energy monitoring and management applications for the Industry 4.0 age.

Introduction

The PMC-5200 series is a new generation of Power Meter Concentrators designed to meet the energy saving and carbon reduction trends in the Industry 4.0 age. These modules provide flexible integration with ICP DAS power meters via an RS-485 or Ethernet interface, and features various functions, such as measurement of the power consumption by the devices, energy usage analysis, power demand management, and alarm notification. The PMC-5200 series also features a built-in MicroSD card. After retrieving the power data from the power meter, it can be saved in a log file, which can then be automatically sent to the back-end management center for data and statistical analysis.

The PMC-5200 series offers a user-friendly and intuitive web interface that allows you to implement an energy monitoring and management system with just a few clicks – no programming knowledge or skills are required. The PMC-5200 series also supports the Modbus TCP/RTU, SNMP, FTP and MQTT protocols for seamless integration with back-end SCADA/MES/IT/IoT/Network Management systems, meaning that an administrator can monitor the status of the energy consumption by each device, and perform statistical analysis of the power information, so that the overall efficiency and energy consumption of the factory can be improved, thereby saving or reducing costs on utility bills. All of these features make the PMC-5200 series the perfect concentrator for power meters in energy monitoring and management applications in the Industry 4.0 age.

Main Functions:

  • No more programming. No additional software tools, use a browser to perform system operations
  • Power data display and power data statistics report provided
  • Built-in MicroSD card to store power data logs. Data files are automatically sent to the back-end management center. A file recovery mechanism is included.
  • Intelligent power demand management, flexible operational control of the device, together with an email and SMS alarm notification mechanism based on an IF-THEN-ELSE logic rule.
  • Schedule operations for the devices as required to save energy.
  • A variety of I/O modules are supported to flexibly adjust the operation of the devices.
  • 3G/4G Wireless data communication and SMS message operations (for the PMC-5231M-3GWA and PMC-5231M-4GE modules only)
  • A variety of protocols are supported, providing a cost-effective power meter concentrator in the IoT age.

Summary:

As the price of energy rises globally, the effective use of electricity, together with cost control, is becoming more important for all kinds of industries. The PMC-5200 series Industrial IoT Power Meter Concentrator provides flexible integration with the ICP DAS power meter to measure and monitor energy consumption by the devices, as well as performing statistical analysis of the power information. In addition, the PMC-5200 series also provides power demand management and alarm notification functions. By integrating the PMC-5200 series with remote I/O modules, logic control or load shedding can be performed on the devices in real time based on the power demand. The PMC-5200 series also supports various communication protocols for seamless integration with back-end SCADA/IT/IoT systems, meaning that an administrator can monitor the status of the energy consumption by each device, and perform statistical analysis of the power information, so that the overall efficiency and energy consumption of the factory can be improved, thereby saving or reducing costs on utility bills.
