 Introduction

PMCS standalone software is no longer available. As an alternative, please refer to Industrial Energy Management Systems or ePMS Electrical Power Management Systems.


PMCS seamlessly integrates the comprehensive line of GE Multilin devices as well as new ModBus RTU devices and systems. PMCS is the backbone of an energy management system, proven in over 700 installed sites. When combined with a powerful HMI package (Cimplicity HMI 6.1 SP5 or Wonderware InTouch 9.5), PMCS allows users to maximize productivity, minimize downtime, and reduce energy costs.

1. PMCS Configurator: Single Point Device Configuration

    • Device setup (serial & ethernet servers and event & waveform servers)
    • Testing device communication
    • Generic device-type creation
    • Add/modify delete register addresses & groups
    • Import & export features
    • Auto-launching servers in “hidden” mode
    • Periodic check on server run status
    • Shortcut menus to launch viewers (Waveform Client, Event Viewer and Comtrade Viewer)
    • Consistent GE Multilin software Look & Feel

2. COMTRADE Waveform Viewer

    • Data Display – trend graphs, harmonics, phasors and numeric display
    • Cursors – static cursor for trigger position and two dynamic cursors
    • Zoom-in and zoom-out
    • Playback of waveforms
    • Customizable View – channel, scaling and color selection
    • Time Stamps – displayed for samples at cursors
    • COMTRADE standards supported – C37.111-1991 and C37.111-1999

3. Tray Tools

    • Provides snapshot of PMCS Servers’ status
    • Launch/Start/Stop controls
    • Show/hide server applications
    • Quick status indication with color coding – Running/Close/Stop

4. Remote Viewer

    • Client for PMCS Server systems
    • Simplified PMCS Server configuration and connectivity
    • Viewing of events and waveforms
    • COMTRADE viewer
    • Auto retrieval of event database from Server
    • Event & waveform file transfer on XML/SOAP/HTTP
    • Trigger and upload waveforms on NetDDE / DCOM
    • Cimplicity Wizards for remote viewing
