There are several ways of transmitting data (diagnostic files, projects, etc.), which is required for processing your request, to Technical Support.
The Compatibility Tool is a function provided by the Industry Online Support with which you can select compatible software products or check the compatibility of existing configurations.
The Hardcopy function in WinCC is for printing out in the overview area of the PCS 7 process picture. In this case the screen background is also printed out on a color printer, which leads to an increased consumption of the color cartridges of the color printer. Using a C action you can set the color of the background to "white" for the printout.

The application example shows how to access the compressed and binary-coded WinCC archive data with the aid of your own C# application. The data are then available in a format suitable for further processing.
When downloading changes of a PCS 7 OS, different messages might occur as described in this entry. There is a fundamental difference between downloading changes for a PCS 7 OS and downloading changes in the case of a dedicated WinCC station (WinCC native).
For archive configuration you should make sure that the sum of all the single segments (Tag Logging Fast, Tag Logging Slow and Alarm Logging) does not exceed a certain number.
The server data includes all the important information for the OS clients. This server data is automatically generated during compiling or loading of the OS server. All OS clients that access data from multiple OS servers need the server data of all the OS servers they are "working together with".
Proceed as described below if you want to change this block icon, create your own block icons or use the option in SIMATIC PCS 7 V6.x and higher of using multiple icons for the same type of block.
It is possible to optimize controllers using the commissioning tool "PCS 7 PID Tuner". The tool makes measurements to determine the process parameters and then suggests the optimum settings for the controller. If required, you can apply these settings immediately.
You can use SCL/CFC to access a data block in different ways.
The default message blocks of STEP 7/PCS 7 (ALARM_S, ALARM_8P, ...) do not support the interconnection of the "STRING" data type at the "SD.." in-out parameters for message-associated values. This entry shows you two methods of transferring a string nevertheless as message-associated value.
Configuration Notes: When a plant is commissioned or in operation, certain values in data blocks may be adapted in line with the process. For example, the controller parameters or other parameters (e.g. runtimes, limits, ...) are generally changed during commissioning. If these changes are only made online, the current values in the data blocks may be overwritten by the originally configured values when the program is reloaded, the hardware configuration loaded or when the con ...
Time synchronization in PCS7 means that an active time master synchronizes all the OSs, PLCs and ESs on the plant bus to the current time.
Depending on the status of a tag, a specific layer of a screen must be shown. This entry provides you with a script for this.
Lifebeat Monitoring monitors servers, clients and automation devices. Usually the Lifebeat Monitoring runs on a central WinCC client. It provides a view of Lifebeat objects belonging to a project and of the automation devices and operator stations of other projects. For this all the plant sections must be connected to one common network.
The number of process objects (PO) is counted on the Engineering Station (ES). How you can read out the current number of process objects from your project is described in the entries below.

You can use the "Autostart" function to start WinCC with a specific project when the computer starts up.
You use the IEA when several models or process tag types are often assigned in a project (processing mass data) and you want to modify the parameter descriptions of the blocks. You should pay attention to the following when selecting the sampling times.
