Monitoring tasks from the Windows task planning using DiagMonitor

  • Entry
  • Associated product(s)
In conjunction with SIMATIC IPC DiagMonitor, SIMATIC industry PCs offer the possibility of implementing certain monitoring functions. In addition, you can also integrate tasks from the Windows task planning as additional monitoring functions in IPC DiagMonitor.

Without any additional expenditure, the SIMATIC IPC DiagMonitor application provides wide ranging options to monitor IPCs, for example:

  • Temperature monitoring
  • Fan monitoring 
  • Monitoring the battery voltage
  • Monitoring hard disks 
  • Hardware or software reset of the computer
  • Operating hours counter

In addition, you can also integrate tasks from the Windows task planning as additional monitoring functions in IPC DiagMonitor. This application shows as example the implementation of the following monitoring tasks:

  • Monitoring the status of the Windows firewall
  • Identifying as to whether a USB data storage medium has been inserted or withdrawn
  • Identifying as to whether a certain application was started (e.g. Notepad)
  • Monitoring a file for changes (e.g. LogFile)

You also have the option of passing on these additional monitoring functions via the OPC channel to SIMATIC WinCC.
