Decentralized Operation of SIMATIC WinCC with SIMATIC Thin Clients
For the operation of a production plant or machine it is necessary to install several operator stations from where the production can be monitored and controlled.
The operator stations are in an industrial environment and must therefore be robust and failsafe.
The solution presented here is based on the use of the SCADA system SIMATIC WinCC Runtime Professional V13 or WinCC V7.3 and several SIMATIC Industrial Thin Clients for the visualization and operation of the plant.
The client-server concept with a central data management reduces the time and costs for updating software, since you only have to do it once on the server and the update is then automatically available to all the clients.
Compared to traditional PC clients, Industrial Thin Clients offer cost advantages and an increased resistance and failure-safety in an industrial production environment.
They increase the availability of your production plant or machine and save costs for the necessary operating hardware and for the engineering and maintenance of the automation software.
