Motor Management System


Siemens Industry Automation Division has expanded its Simocode Pro motor management system to include a basic unit with Profinet interface. Linking up Simocode Pro via Ethernet to higher-level automation systems allows new functions to be provided for motor diagnostics, control and protection. The additional integration of PROFIenergy also improves energy management.
Siemens new Simocode Pro motor management system includes a Simocode Pro V Profinet basic unit with two RJ45 interfaces, allowing the system to connect to higher-level controllers such as Simatic S7 or to control systems such as Simatic PCS 7. Profinet can be used to provide media redundancy functions which ensure that a connection is maintained within a network with ring topology, even if one communication channel fails. This helps to increase the availability, resulting in increased productivity of the entire plant.Simocode Pro with Profinet
Simocode Pro also features integrated web diagnostics, as well as server for OPC UA, the multi-vendor communication standard in automation. With the aid of an Internet browser, all diagnostic and service data, values and statistics relating to the motor starter can be called up from anywhere via a network connection and the web server.
