WinCC Unified

Visualization with WinCC Unified now even more flexible!

Now even more flexible!

SIMATIC WinCC Unified is a completely new visualization system that enables you to successfully master the challenges of digitization in machine and plant engineering. The latest web and edge technologies combined with open interfaces enable you to implement your ideas flexibly and according to application-specific requirements.

Seamlessly integrated hardware and software


You can use the new SIMATIC HMI Unified Comfort Panels and the PC-based SIMATIC systems to get the most out of the performance offered by WinCC Unified. Thanks to HTML5 and SVG support, the visualization opens up many new opportunities you can use with the Totally Integrated Automation Portal (TIA Portal), easily and efficiently.

In addition, SIMATIC WinCC Unified is available as apps for runtime and engineering for the Industrial Edge infrastructure.

Highlights SIMATIC WinCC Unified

Zero installation client

The user interface is consistently based on the HTML, SVG, and JavaScript technologies. A state-of-the-art web browser is all that’s needed to access the visualization –no need to install separate apps or plug-ins.

Comprehensive set of controls

The design of the user interface controls has been fundamentally redesigned and offers consistent usability with significantly more functionality for all platforms.

Comprehensive scripting

The JavaScript scripting language gives WinCC Unified now one integrated scripting engine for all platforms. All functions of the language for data handling, object creation, and the use of classes as well as inheritance are available for scripting in WinCC Unified.

One file for a variety of possibilities

With SVG graphics you always get an optimal visual quality. WinCC Unified supports not only static but also dynamic SVG graphics, which can be easily animated and dynamized.

Automate the engineering

Engineering in TIA Portal means WinCC Unified comes with the comprehensive support of TIA Portal Openness. This API (Application Programming Interface) allows repeated steps in the engineering process to be automated and validation of configurations for accuracy.

Easily combine distributed systems

WinCC Unified Collaboration makes it much easier to combine individual WinCC Unified systems, such as the visualization of a machine as part of a line visualization.

Open for extensions

Fully Integrate web-based tools, controls or applications in the visualization of WinCC Unified. One user interface for the operator – no more switching between different tools.

Easily connect to IT-systems

In order to connect software systems from the automation or IT environment, WinCC Unified provides various options for data exchange with “Runtime Openess” and the “OpenPipe” interface.

Data archiving

With WinCC Unified, each of your applications get the optimal solution for archiving, because the process data can be archived either file-based or in a database. Thanks to its easy handling, file-based archiving is particularly suitable for small and medium-sized applications.


WinCC Unified’s integrated alarming system provides  immediate notification of critical process states or general warnings, enabling quick reactionand reduced downtimes. All messages and alarms can be categorized into specific classes of alerts.

Parameter control

You can easily handle and manage machine or production parameters with “parameter sets”. This enables you to define the parameter structures based on UDTs (User Data Types) from the PLC. The handling of the parameter sets between PLC and HMI can be easily automated with the help of job IDs.

User administration

With SIMATIC WinCC Unified, you can set up local user administration and access control (UMAC) during the engineering – using predefined function rights and defining user and password policies. This protects your visualization from unauthorized access.
