  • Associated product(s)

SIMATIC Logon V1.5 is now available incl. SP2. SIMATIC Logon V1.5 with SP2 now also supports the operating systems Windows 8.0, Windows 8.1, Windows Server 2012 and Windows Server 2012 R2.

1 Product Description

1.1 Classification / Application Area

SIMATIC Logon V1.5 + SP2 is capable of working together with applications, in which roles have already been set up or can be defined. Application examples for SIMATIC Logon in the SIMATIC environment are:

  • SIMATIC PCS 7
  • SIMATIC WinCC
  • SIMATIC WinCC flexible version 2007 and higher, in conjunction with Logon Remote Access (see ordering data)
  • STEP 7

If SIMATIC Logon is not already integrated in the system, the number of required SIMATIC Logon licenses is determined by the number of Clients/Single Stations that access applications for which SIMATIC Logon is used as access protection.

SIMATIC Logon consists of the following software components:

SIMATIC Logon Service
Central access protection for SIMATIC applications. When starting an application managed by SIMATIC Logon, the logon dialog of the SIMATIC Logon Service will be activated. After entering user name, password and domain, the user receives his/her specific rights. The SIMATIC Logon Service dialog for logging off, switching users or changing the password can be called from within the applications.

SIMATIC Logon Role Administration
Administration of the roles of an application and their assignment to Windows groups including the allocation of user rights..

SIMATIC Logon Event Log Viewer
The SIMATIC Logon Event Log Viewer is a component that records and displays the events of an application.

SIMATIC Electronic Signature
With the SIMATIC Electronic Signature, operations can only be executed following the approval by previously assigned Windows users/user groups. The assignment of the users/user groups to the operations occurs within the respective application. Presently, this function has only been implemented as a system function with SIMATIC BATCH. However, the electronic signature can be used application-specific with any product.

SIMATIC Logon Development Kit
The Development Kit is intended for programmers, who would like to integrate SIMATIC Logon into a customer application.
