In DCE we can read energy data (kwh) from our RPDU, so does DCE's API support reading these data from DCE?

Depends on the rPDU itself.If it provides Energy, then DCE will show that data.
Some rPDU only have power (watts), in which case DCE will not be able to show Energy.
As for DCE API, use the webservice to get sensor reading you want.

Hi Christopherus, It's APC's RPDU and we can read RPDU's energy data in DCE. What we want to know is that if the data could also read by API? We'd like to integrate this data into customer's system. I know that DCE provides a series of APIs including sensor data here http://www.apc.com/tools/download/software_comp.cfm?sw_sku=SFWEBSVC. But I haven't used it before so I want to know if this function (read RPDU's energy data via API) is doable. Thanks, Ziqiang

Possible to get Energy from DCE from Web service Use Soap UI to test it out
