The software

synergy is a supervision and energy management web-based software that provides simply and efficiently the monitoring and the control of the electrical installation from any computer or mobile device through the most popular web browser.
It is an effective software that is in line with the activities indicated by the standard EN ISO 50001 “Energy management systems – requirements and use guidelines” and with the monitoring activities requested by the energy analysis.
In addition to all electrical parameters, it allows to check all environmental and process information (operating status, alarms, etc.), measured by LOVATO Electric products, provided with a communication port.

Cockpit

Configuration

The programming ofsynergy is simple, intuitive and guided by dedicated tools. The configuration of device networks, graphic pages, data logs, trend charts and customized reports is very easy and requires no special expertise in information technology.

Languages

synergy is available in different languages: English, Italian, Spanish, French, Polish and Russian and other languages can be downloaded from at this link (Synergy languages zip file).

Home page of Synergy

Thesynergy home page summarises key diagnostic information and allows immediate verification of the state of the system.

Access levels

synergy provides access to a large number of users at three different level positions:

Admin

complete access to all functions

Power user

can view only the devices defined by admin, creates and modifies pages, reports and graphs, exports and modifies device parameters

User

can view only the devices and pages defined by admin

Communication networks and channels

synergy interfaces with LOVATO Electric products by other brands, working with Modbus communication protocol. The software is able to simultaneously manage various communication channels (different TCP/IP addresses, RS232, RS485 and Ethernet communication ports), each independently configured (e.g. for protocol and speed).

In addition, regarding cabled networks, synergy can also connect to analogue and GSM/GPRS modems. Communications are handled by the Modbus RTU, Modbus ASCII and Modbus TCP/IP protocols.

LOVATO Electric products, which are directly connected to an Ethernet network can also work with dynamic TCP/IP addresses, allowing the use of a single static IP address for the server.

Management of interfaced products

The control menu includes: the principal information about the monitored equipment, communications with the software and the most recent readings. The menu allows users to edit the internal parameters of the various devices, save them on the hard disk and re-load them for quick copy of configurations on other devices.

To optimise data traffic on communication networks, synergy cyclically acquires only the data needed for the Data Logs and other data required by the active graphic page.

Synergy has 5 main components.

Pages

Monitoring pages contain the dynamic objects of synergy(indicators, counters, control buttons, etc.) and made-to-measure static images, to create overviews of the plantsynoptic/topographic panels and direct inputs for the equipment used. All energy measurements and controls are therefore immediately available for any evaluation.

Data Log

synergy allows you to save data from field devices to an unlimited number of Data Logs, each fully configurable and custom-made.

The Data Logs can combine data per line, department/area or sampling period (at intervals from 60’ to 5’’). You can export the Data Logs in Excel or text format at any time, or schedule such operations automatically on set time (day/week/year).

You can use the Data Logs off-line with devices which can be provided with memory expansions (EXM10 30 or EXP10 30) so as to record the information directly.

Trend charts

Data saved to the Data Logs can also be displayed in graphic form.

Chart period, chart type (lines, bars, dots, candle sticks), colours and scale can be changed quickly and easily. Attractive charts can be created to suit specific analysis requirements.

Alarms

When the limits set by the user or the various parameters are exceeded,synergyrecords the anomaly and displays it in the software’s header. The home page always displays the last 10 alarms, while the alarms menu displays their details and allows you to hide them.

Each Data Log can be associated with one or more alarms: an upper and a lower limit, calendar (for enabling/disabling the alarm), display in trend charts and automatic e-mail notification options.

Report

Reports enables to process data collected from Data Logs and highlight significant values for all measured quantities (minimum, mean, maximum and differential values) using pre-set time bands (hours, days and months).

Reports can be displayed graphically (pie chart or histogram), with manual/automatic export by day, month or year in Excel or text format. The exported data can be saved on the hard disk or transmitted by e-mail or FTP.
