About CIMPLICITY PMCS Version 6.15
CIMPLICITY PMCS Version 6.15 is the latest Power Management Control
System in the robust line of POWER LEADER power-management products
from GE Multilin. CIMPLICITY PMCS seamlessly integrates the
comprehensive line of POWER LEADER devices, as well as many new
Modbus RTU devices and systems. PMCS comes with built-in Ethernet
