Monitoring Machines and Plants via Live Video with WinCC V7 and WinCC Professional
Another application case is the monitoring of several plant parts from one central location. The operator can quickly respond to a possible cause of malfunction and bring the respective tool on the way to the machine to eliminate the fault, e. g. a work piece being jammed in the machine.
In order o monitor the process of your industrial or production plant by means of webcams, you can display the live stream of the webcam directly in WinCC V7 or WinCC Runtime Professional. This way, the operator can quickly access the images of the webcam and thus the plant.
In this application example, we tested several webcams by means of which you can display the menu and the live stream in Runtime via the Web Control of the Runtime.
Moreover, it shows how to display only the live stream of the web cam by means of screen windows.
The enclosed program example includes:
- Instructions for implementing the live stream of the webcam in WinCC V7 or WinCC Runtime Professional.
- An example program for configuring WinCC V7 or WinCC Professional.
