WinCC Runtime Software


WinCC Runtime Advanced

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


WinCC Runtime Professional

SIMATIC WinCC Runtime Professional is a PC-based operator system for the visualization and operation of processes, production sequences, machines, and plants from all industries - ranging from simple single-station systems to distributed multi-station systems and location-independent solutions with Web clients.
SIMATIC WinCC Runtime Professional is based on a next-generation development of WinCC Runtime V7.4 and obtains access to WinCC archives via OPC HDA, OPC A&E / OPC XML Server and WinCC OLE-DB/OLE-DB. The basic package also includes APIs for the Runtime to utilize the open programming interfaces.

Highligths:

16K Tags Runtime Advanced
New, larger version: WinCC Runtime Advanced 16,384 PowerTags

WinCC Sm@rtServer option

  • New Sm@rtServer option for Basic Panel 2nd Generation
  • Sm@rtServer option for Comfort/Mobile Panels, free-of-charge with V14 and higher

More connections to S7-1500
Support of up to 64 connections possible for WinCC Professional

Enhanced multi-touch support for selected controls
Gestures for moving objects in the display area of controls can now be used in WinCC Professional: Trend-based controls, grid-based controls, axis control.

WinCC WebUX option
Platform- and browser-independent control and monitoring via the Web, for use with WinCC Runtime Professional.

Licensing for WebNavigator, DataMonitor and WebUX
The license type for Web options is countable system-wide. These SCADA options V7.4 or V14 and higher will have uniform MLFBs in the future, eliminating separate MLFBs for these products for Runtime Professional.
