SIMATIC HMI Option+ offers you completely new functions for your SIMATIC IPC and your SIMATIC HMI Comfort Panel. Apart from the configuration of the device interfaces from Runtime, the new application also offers you possibilities for user identification via RFID card, functions for monitoring remote access or simplified handling of OPC UA certificates.

Increasing digitization of production processes, also increase the requirements for convenient and yet secure configuration of IT-related functions in HMI systems in the production environment.

SIMATIC HMI Option+ makes it possible for users to configure such IT-related functions in their SIMATIC HMI Comfort Panels easily and yet safely during operation.
With SIMATIC HMI Option+ IPC, these functions are also available for PC Runtime (WinCC RT Advanced).

In addition to the interface configuration (USB, SD, network adapter,...), memory storage, system information of the device or functions for remote service can also be configured directly in Runtime.
Furthermore, by integrating PM-LOGON Basic, user identification via RFID can be configured and commissioned on the operator panel in just a few steps.


  • User-friendly tool for extending the range of functions of the operator panels
  • Increased IT security through extended configuration options of the operating system
  • Configuration of system information from Runtime
  • Simplified OPC certificate handling
  • Preconfigured faceplates and screens for fast integration into user projects
  • Visualization of CPU and memory resource use
