TÜV SÜD certification for zenon: Efficient energy data management system according to ISO 50001

The certification body of TÜV SÜD Industrie Service GmbH recently confirmed that our reporting and HMI/SCADA software zenon meets the defined requirements of the TÜV SÜD "Certified Energy Data Management" standard. The software therefore meets important criteria set out by the international energy standard ISO 50001.

The objective of energy management in accordance with ISO 50001 is the continuous improvement of the energy-related performance of a company. The standard supports production teams in manufacturing companies in creating the underlying conditions for this improvement process using the PDCA cycle. Here, P stands for "Plan", D for "Do", C for "Check" and A for "Act".

ISO 50001 compliant

For successful certification, a range of specific system properties must be met – for example: virtual meter points, energy consumption trends, the determination of limit values, warnings in the event of breaches, the creation of key performance indicators, the generation of energy reports and much more. To this end, the experts from TÜV SÜD carried out a precise evaluation of our software in accordance with TÜV SÜD criteria at the premises of the developers. In addition, implementation of the Energy Data Management System with zenon in a real industrial environment was an important prerequisite for the certification. In a comprehensive audit, this practical application was tested and evaluated at the beverage manufacturer Adelholzener Alpenquellen GmbH in Germany. The issue of the certificate confirms that zenon successfully meets the TÜV SÜD requirements and the corresponding support for companies as defined in chapter 4.6.1. of ISO 50001.
