Product description:

SIMATIC IPC Starter systems, the quick entry into PC-based automation in combination with Windows 10. Ready-to-use SIMATIC IPCs with visualization and control software

Highlights of the IPC Starter Systems

  • Fast commissioning
  • Due to the factory-installed and preconfigured SIMATIC software, the SIMATIC IPC Starter systems can be used within a very short time.
  • After commissioning, the projects need only be transferred to the Software Controller respectively WinCC Runtime.
  • The system is then ready for operation.
  • All IPC Starter systems are system-tested and the available hardware and software combinations are perfectly matched.
  • For the system and process messages of the WinCC Runtime Advanced, a retentive message buffer has been set up on a separate partition. This allows to use the Unified Write Filter (UWF) features included in Windows 10 Enterprise without the risk of losing messages. UWF is the successor for the EWF known from Windows Embedded Standard 7 (WES7).

Simple licensing and price advantage via IPC Software Packages

  • The SIMATIC IPC Starter systems are delivered without licenses. Depending on the requirements regarding the project and the options required, different software packages are available which allow to obtain licenses which have been optimally tailored to the project.
  • The packages which are available for WinCC Runtime Advanced at attractive special prices are provided at the following entry ID: 99860269

Please note:
These „software packages with SIMATIC IPC“ are only available when being ordered simultaneously with a SIMATIC IPC respectively SIMATIC IPC Starter system.
