Scalability of Basic Panels up to SCADA

WinCC V11 offers comprehensive engineering, enabling configuration of a variety of HMI target devices, from Basic Panels to SCADA applications, with a single software package.

The new engineering offers several advantages, especially for engineering SCADA applications. Grid-based editors, object-oriented view of tags and associated messages and archive tags, simple system functions and convenient script editors provide efficiency for engineering SCADA applications.

Intuitive user interface with high user friendliness

Editors that have been adapted to configuration tasks and processes, and the latest Windows technologies form the basis for the intuitive operating concept of WinCC V11.

Embedding the various editors in a common working environment ensures that all the latest data is available to users and guarantees a clear overview of project data at all times. 

Clear configuration of devices and network topologies

The configuration and parameter assignment for the hardware and network is another key task when creating an application. WinCC V11 supports the user with photo-realistic rendering and configuration of hardware modules. In the network view, users can simply build links between the various automation devices. Client/server applications are also easy to configure this way.

Portal view for quick, task-oriented starts

The introduction to the engineering is much easier through the portal view. Even a beginner can navigate quickly and accurately to each task.

Maintenance personnel can also quickly familiarize themselves in the online view of the equipment directly in the portal view, without having to first load a project.

Intelligent Drag&Drop

Project data are often reused at different locations of a project and linked in various editors. Intelligent Drag&Drop automatically creates these links for users. This way, data can be "dragged" directly from the PLC into an HMI picture and connected there. Connections between the elements are created automatically by the system in the background.

Comprehensive library design

The system features a comprehensive library design that enables reuse of frequently-used program parts and for easy standardization of certain parts of the program.

Elements such as blocks, tags, alarms, HMI pictures, picture objects, individual modules or complete stations, including their parameters can be stored in local or global libraries. This makes them available for other programming or configuration tasks.

Investment security

You can migrate existing projects that are available in WinCC flexible 2008 SP2 format.

 

HMI runtime software

SIMATIC WinCC Runtime Advanced is the performance visualization software for simple, low-level visualization tasks. It can be used as single-station solution for all automation applications in manufacturing, process and building automation.
SIMATIC WinCC Runtime Advanced is based on advanced development of WinCC flexible Runtime 2008 and additionally contains OPC DA Server in the basic package.

SIMATIC WinCC Runtime Professional is a PC-based control and monitoring system for visualizing and operating processes, production processes, machinery and equipment in all sectors - from simple single stations to distributed multiple-station systems and multiple-site solutions with Web clients.
SIMATIC WinCC Runtime Professional is based on advanced development of WinCC Runtime V7.0 SP2 and provides access to WinCC archives via OPC HDA, OPC A&E / OPC XML server and WinCC OLE DB / OLE DB in the basic package.
