PCDiagBridge

  • Entry
  • Associated product(s)
PCDiagBridge is a software tool that makes available to the SIMATIC applications WinCC and WinCC flexible the diagnostics data provided by the DiagBase diagnostics software as well as messages from SITOP UPSs, WinAC RTX and WinAC RTX F.

Description
The diagnostics software allows you to recognize any possible disturbances with SIMATIC IPCs at an early stage. Error messages to the operating personnel help to avoid or reduce system downtimes.

You can use PCDiagBridge to monitor the following hardware and software components:

  • SIMATIC IPC hardware (fan speed, CPU temperature, CMOS voltage and mass storage, for example)
  • SITOP UPS (operating mode, error message, switch-off)
  • Operating and monitoring of the WinAC RTX / WinAC RTX F (Run/Stop, error display, operating mode)

The PCDiagBridge user interface provides you with all the relevant PC diagnostics data at a glance. Prepared templates for WinCC and WinCC flexible permit easy integration of the diagnostics data into the SIMATIC visualization system.

PCDiagBridge is available for downloading free of charge.

Note
The PCDiagBridge software will no longer be developed and adapted to current IPCs. If you would like diagnostics data from current IPCs or one of the following functions, we recommend using the SIMATIC IPC DiagMonitor diagnostics software.

  • Monitor networked SIMATIC IPCs
  • Read out and send error messages via OPC server, e-mail or SMS
  • Worldwide monitoring of SIMATIC IPCs via web browser

More information about DiagMonitor is available in Entry ID: 109477200 and on the website: www.siemens.com/simatic-pc.
