Highlights

  • Support of the new SIMATIC Open Controller
  • Support of the 2nd generation Mobile Panels
  • Cooperation of WinCC with STEP 7 across different projects
     
  • API Engineering of WinCC and STEP 7
     
  • Simple processing of projects with different engineering versions

Support of thenew SIMATIC Open Controller
The CPU 1515SP PC is a robust, PC-based system that makes use of the new S7-1500 Software Controller. The CPU implements the function of a classical S7-1500 controller in ET 200SP design on a PC with Windows. Additional HMI functionality is provided by the CPU 1515SP PC + HMI with pre-installed WinCC Runtime Advanced. This enables both control and visualization functions in one unit. All this and a lot more is described in entry ID 105722192.


Support of the 2nd generation Mobile Panels
As from Q1 2015 the completely innovated cable-connected 2nd generation SIMATIC HMI Mobile Panels in the display sizes 7 and 9 inch with enhanced scope of functions will be released for delivery (102837186). The second generation of the SIMATIC HMI Mobile Panels convinces with convenient handling, performance and quality. The highlights: A luminous widescreen display, particularly easy configuration and the unique illuminated Emergency Stop button.
 

Cooperation of WinCC with STEP 7 across different projects
Especially during the engineering phase of automation tasks several persons may have to work simultaneously on one project. Using a PLC Proxy, the data to be visualized can be taken over from a STEP 7 or STEP 7 V5.4 update 3 project into the visualization project, in order to configure the panel in parallel.  This concept has been expanded with the TIA Portal V13 SP1. It is now possible to integrate redundant and routed controllers via a PLC Proxy. The MPI communication is now also supported by the PLC Proxy.

API Engineering of WinCC and STEP 7
An interface for WinCC and STEP 7 in the TIA Portal enables the programming of applications which automate the engineering in the TIA Portal. It allows you to create your own applications for automatic engineering using external develpment environments, e.g. for the generation of HMI images and PLC software blocks. For WinCC the objects of our panels and Runtime Advanced are supported.
 

Simple processing of projects with different engineering versions
WinCC V13 SP1 supports the processing of projects from WinCC V13 and V12 in the compatibility mode. After processing in V13 SP1 such projects can be used again in a V12 or V13 engineering environment. It is thus not necessary to upgrade projects when changing the engineering version, which simplifies the handling of different projects.

Investment protection due to migration
WinCC V13 SP1 offers a migration of WinCC flexible 2008 SP2 or SP3 projects and also of WinCC V7.2 projects, thus safeguarding the investments made.

 

WinCC Runtime Software

WinCC Runtime Advanced

SIMATIC WinCC Runtime Advanced is the high-performance visualization software for simple, machine-related visualization tasks. It can be used as single-user solution for all automation applications in manufacturing and process industries and in building automation.

Highlights

  • Editor for the creation of style sheets
  • New controls
  • Slide-in and pop-up images

Editor for the creation of style sheets
The concept for the creation of central innovative designs and styles introduced with V13 has been further expanded. With the new Style Sheet Editor in V13 SP1 it is even easier and quicker to create and transfer consistent styles. Several versions of an object can now be set up within one style. The font sizes can be stored device-dependent. They will be automatically adapted when changing to a device with a different display size.

New controls
The portfolio of controls has been expanded by web browser, PDF and camera display. An additional horizontal sliding control enables new surface designs. The objects are available in Runtime Advanced, the Comfort Panels and in our new 2nd generation Mobile Panels.

Slide-in and pop-up images
The control area can now be used even better using slide-in images. These images can slide over the active image and in this way support the operators in the control of the machine whenever required. In addition there are now pop-up images that accentuate their functionality by their animated appearance.The objects are available in Runtime Advanced, the Comfort Panels and in our new 2nd generation Mobile Panels.

WinCC Runtime Professional

SIMATIC WinCC Runtime Professional is a PC-based operator input and control system for the visualization and control of processes, production sequences, machines and plants, in all industries - for simple single-user systems up to distributed multi-user systems and solutions with web-clients across sites.
SIMATIC WinCC Runtime Professional is based on a further development of WinCC Runtime V7.3 and includes access to WinCC archives via OPC HDA, OPC A&E / OPC-XML servers and WinCC OLE-DB/OLE-DB. The basic package also includes APIs for runtime for the use of disclosed programming interfaces.

Highlights

  • Multi Touch operator input
  • SIMATIC Process Historian 2014  as option
  • SIMATIC Information Server 2014 as option
  • Enhanced diagnostics with the PLC Code Viewer

Multi Touch operator input

  • 2-Finger zoom to zoom and superimpose levels with the Decluttering function
  • Panning to move the zoomed image content
  • Flicks for image changes over the image
  • Two-hand control for operator enabling and reference value changes

SIMATIC Process Historian 2014 as option
The SIMATIC Process Historian is a high-perormance long-term archive which perfectly matches with the WinCC SCADA system: Process data and alarms can be centrally archived in realtime, without any additional engineering work.

SIMATIC Information Server 2014 as option
The SIMATIC Information Server can be used to create reports and evaluations of historical WinCC data for specific target groups on the basis of the Microsoft Reporting Services. The created reports are available at any time via a web-based user interface.

Enhanced diagnostics with the PLC Code Viewer
The PLC Code Viewer enables the status of function blocks to be represented and any malfunction traced on a PLC (S7-1200 and S7-1500).
The status of a S7Graph function block (e.g. step name, step number, error status) can be indicated via a control element. An extended control can be started out of this element to indicate the PLC Code concerned and the PLC Network.
No installation of STEP 7 is required on the runtime to display the PLC Code.
