Siemens’ function point manager app for protection devices

Requirements-based function expansions for protection devices designed for use in utilities, industrial plants or infrastructures

License file easily created in seconds

Siemens Smart Infrastructure has launched a new application for the Siprotec 5 and Siprotec 5 Compact series of protection devices: In just a few seconds, customers can now generate new license files for their protection device using a cloud-based app. This allows new device functions to be enabled very quickly. These functions are added depending on the type of application of the device, for instance, to protect lines and motors in the distribution network of utilities or industrial plants. Until now, the ordering process for a license file took almost week. 

“For the first time, the Siprotec function point manager combines expanding the device functions of a protection device with an end-to-end software solution,” said Robert Klaffus, CEO of Digital Grid at Siemens Smart Infrastructure. “This gives our customers a fast, straightforward, cloud-based solution for their protection devices.”By default, standard devices in the Siprotec 5 Compact series have only a few basic functions. Customers can now expand their devices precisely and quickly to meet their individual requirements. All they need is an account in the Siprotec Function Point Manager app. On the one hand, this enables customers to rapidly adapt replacement devices to their requirements if needed instead of having to keep different device variations on hand. On the other hand, device functions can be specified late in the engineering process and easily added to the protection device using a license file that can be generated very quickly.
