Integration of third-party Systems with SIMATIC PCS 7/OPEN OS

  • Entry
  • Associated product(s)
Today's process engineering systems are often made up of system landscapes that have grown over many years and include control systems from different manufacturers. The main challenge is to integrate various systems from different manufacturers into one operator control and monitoring system. The automation system that is responsible for the sensors and actuators is of secondary importance.

Solution
The SIMATIC PCS 7/OPEN OS option package enables the integration of the following components into the PCS 7 process control system:

  • Controllers from Siemens that do not belong to the spectrum of PCS 7 system components
  • Controllers from other manufacturers
  • Package units

Depending on the given technical conditions of the controller that is to be integrated, connection to the PCS 7/OPEN OS operator station (single station, server or redundant server pair) is possible via the existing WinCC channels (e.g. S7 channel or Modbus TCP channel) or via OPC (OPC DA and OPC A&E).


Advantages

  • Assistance with choosing an architecture, based on the number of inputs and outputs, the degree of system availability and the required network topologies.
  • Reduced planning and configuration effort as well as error prevention through standardized interfaces.
