With the SCADA system SIMATIC WinCC V7, Siemens offers an innovative, scalable and a process-visualization system with numerous high-performance functions for monitoring automated processes. Whether in a single-user system or a distributed multi-user system with redundant servers, the system offers complete functionality for all industries and features optimum openness.
Intelligent tools for efficient engineering
Due to the permanently increasing level of automation and the related complexity of the plants, the cost – and time – the pressure is increasing because of the international competition. One response to this pressure has to be efficient engineering on the SCADA layer.
SIMATIC WinCC supports short Time-to-Market when building new plants and achieves a minimum of downtime when doing plant modifications because of its efficient engineering tools.
Manufacturing processes are becoming more and more complex against a background of ever-increasing quality requirements coupled with fast product changes and frequent modifications. To ensure the highest possible productivity at the same time, it must be possible to make prompt, target-oriented decisions regarding process optimization at all levels of a company. This requires an integrated flow of information across all operating levels and locations.
SIMATIC WinCC provides you with high transparency and the basis for process optimization. The intelligent use of information improves the processes in the company for a fast return on investment. This reduces costs, avoids waste, improves the utilization of production facilities, and ultimately guarantees better efficiency and cost-effectiveness for the company.
From single-user system to web-based solution for all technologies and industries
To be able to meet growing requirements, the visualization must be expandable at any time without causing technology incompatibilities or requiring completely new configurations. In-vestment protection is a top priority.
SIMATIC WinCC provides the required integrated scalability, from the small single-user solution to the client/server solution and operator stations on the web. Redundancy solutions for the highest availability and security can be built up as well.
In addition to scalable configurations, WinCC options and Add-ons offer customer-fit extensions for technological and industry-specific solutions.
Future proof due to innovative solutions
Thanks to innovative technology, all important information is consistently available – rapidly, flexibly, and safely.
SIMATIC WinCC V7 thus eases your production’s intuitive operation and monitoring – also remotely.
Benefit from information provision anytime and anywhere with mobile SCADA solutions – also with an available tablet or smartphone hardware. The application of multi-touch gestures in industrial environments opens the door to modern operating concepts.
Using standards for easy integration
SIMATIC WinCC all times stands for a high level of openness and integration capability because it is consequently based on standard technologies and software tools.
Starting with its first version SIMATIC WinCC relies on the market leader in the operating system area. It doesn’t matter if you use Microsoft Windows 2012/2016 Server, or Windows 10 you can track updates in the operating system. At least for you that offers additional investment security.
The powerful MS SQL Server is integrated within the WinCC basis system. Using open interfaces helps you to automatize the engineering, the runtime and the access to archive data.
