zenon in Energy & Infrastructure

zenon is a software system for energy automation from COPA-DATA. In the field of Energy and Infrastructure, zenon controls and monitors equipment for energy distribution and for the generation of electricity from renewable energy sources.


zenon is frequently implemented in substation automation. zenon technologies are used for on-site operation, at control center level and as a gateway. Engineers can implement complex requirements and major projects very quickly. For example, safe redundancy modes can be configured out-of-the-box. Equipment operation is thus robust and highly available.

"zenon ALC hacks a lot of development time"

Philipp Kremer, Product Manager, KUKA Roboter GmbH

on zenon:

"zenon allows you to easily and efficiently create user interfaces. The solution is highly intuitive, training efforts are minimal."

René Gottsbacher, Process Visualization Technician, KNAPP Systemintegration GmbH

on zenon:

"zenon is a very open and independent system. Thanks to the diversity of the more than 300 drivers, it communicates with just about every hardware and software product out there."

Thomas Lantermann, Mitsubishi Electric Europe

on zenon:

"We are simply amazed how quickly, easily and effectively the COPA-DATA solution was created to our specifications."

COPA-DATA develops its own communication stacks for IEC 61850, IEC 60870, DNP 3 and ICCP, for example. This enables quick expansion and the optimal maintenance of drivers. zenon’s communication abilities ensure the greatest connectivity in heterogeneous equipment and the use in smart grids.


In addition, zenon offers many functions for the infrastructure of smart cities. It is possible to monitor and control tunnel facilities, water and waste-water management, as well as public transport and its power supply.

Our Energy Insights

Wizards for faster and easier creation of IEC 61850-based energy automation projects.

Reti Ethernet per applicazioni critiche ad alta velocità nelle sottostazioni. I protocolli di ridondanza PRP e HSR in sistemi basati su IEC 61850.

Automate recurring switching actions with the Command Sequencer. Configure, test and execute them in the graphics editor directly.

COPA-DATA è certificata SIL 2 in conformità con i requisiti previsti dallo standard IEC 61508.

zenon, il sistema di controllo dei processi, consente di combinare differenti standard (per esempio DNP3 e IEC 61850) e garantisce elevate prestazioni.

SNMP garantisce che Voi abbiate una visione generale ed il controllo sul funzionamento di una rete. zenon fornisce un proprio driver SNMP e può svolgere il ruolo sia di agent, che di manager.

La produzione di forme di energia rinnovabile è in continua crescita, così come sempre più importanti diventano le smart grid. Gestite, monitorate e controllate queste reti con zenon.

Smart meter sono un elemento centrale nelle smart Grid. Tuttavia, smart meter possono sviluppare tutto il loro potenziale solamente se possono comunicare in modo efficiente.

L’approvvigionamento di energia prima, conduceva dal produttore al consumatore, adesso si sta trasformando in un sistema duale. Come integrare in modo efficiente tanti produttori?

zenon supporta gli standard della International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) IEC 60870, IEC 61850 and IEC 61400-25.

Non importa se si tratta dello standard IEC 61850, IEC 60870 o DNP3: zenon è applicabile per il controllo della produzione e del flusso di energia, acqua, traffico e telecomunicazioni.
