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.
