Sale of WinCC/Client Access Licenses for SIMATIC PCS 7 to Be Discontinued

  • Entry
  • Associated product(s)

Until now, the OPC Clients required WinCC/Client Access Licenses for the data exchange with the OPC Servers, if they used WinCC/Connectivity Packs for SIMATIC PCS 7 V6.x or OpenPCS 7 for SIMATIC PCS 7 V7.0. Due to the fact that the product owner has stopped selling this license, no WinCC/Client Access Licenses are required anymore for use in the above context.
