HMI and SCADA as the key to increased productivity

The lines between automation and IT are becoming blurred. Users expect more than just control and visualization on the computer or terminal: they would also like to receive information that is intuitive to process, easy to use, and ready to share and exchange – at any time, from any location, and also via mobile devices. HMI and SCADA systems play a key role in the process. With the WinCC V7 IoT Gateway, the connection to Industry 4.0 environments can be easily implemented. It is very easy to obtain transparency about your machine and process data. With the new REST interface, you have a modern standardized interface at your disposal to process your data to MES or other applications such as Mendix / Power Bi.

WinCC OA V3.18 - Visualization made easy

The new product version WinCC Open Architecture V3.18 contains many new features, first among them the new Dashboard functionality for the easy generating of web-based displays. The Dashboards can be defined individually for different users and are easily customizable during runtime. They include a high number of customizable Widgets which can be adapted with ease and configured with the help of a Wizard. Dynamic SVGs aid in the realization of special requirements and in adjusting the look & feel of the customer's personalized dashboards. With all this, the new version offers users a new and simple way to visualize preprocessed data.

 

Additionally, this newest product version offers important enhancements for existing functionalities of WinCC OA, such as for the OPC UA protocol, and new archiving possibilities with Influx, PostgreSQL and Microsoft SQL Databases. The new drivers Omron FINS and SINUMERIK powerline are also supported from now on. To expand the flexible deployment of virtual environments, docker support is also available. To finish up, a completely new icon theme as well as the possibility to easily switch out icons add a more modern look & feel to the new version.

SIMATIC WinCC Open Architecture is designed for applications requiring significant customer-specific adaptations, large and/or complex applications, and projects with special system and functional requirements. Globally distributed systems, as well as higher-level control centers covering a wide range of systems and locations, can thus also be implemented. With SIMATIC WinCC OA, you can implement vendor- and platform-independent SCADA systems that are scalable and offer unlimited global access via the web – including via native iOS and Android user interfaces.

SIMATIC HMI /SCADA Trends

Sustainable success with HMI and SCADA systems

To stay competitive over the long term, manufacturing companies must continuously improve their production systems – in the pursuit of shorter time to market, more efficient and flexible processes, and impeccable quality. HMI and SCADA solutions will assist you in achieving even the most ambitious of targets.

Efficient engineering and user experience as a competitive edge

Standardization and good design go hand in hand: together they make operation more effective and reliable. In addition to a clearly arranged and structured display of the relevant information, the standardization of interactions is also essential for optimum user guidance – for motors and pumps, for example – ensuring that the plant operator immediately recognizes crucial conditions and thus avoids operating errors. Examples from the food and beverage, water and wastewater, and infrastructure industries illustrate what constitutes good HMI design and how you and your users can benefit from it.

Flexibility and openness to create your application

Many industries have requirements that a standard HMI cannot adequately meet. In the food and beverage industry, for example, special requirements for traceability and documentation, quality assurance, and order management must be taken into consideration. For water and wastewater treatment applications, SCADA systems may need to integrate distributed and remote units, for example, and generate standardized DWA-M260 (formerly ATV) reports. Whether in factory automation or infrastructure applications, SIMATIC WinCC Professional, SIMATIC WinCC V7, and SIMATIC WinCC OA are scalable and provide flexibility to create the right solution in any industry.

Totally connected. Totally digitalized

HMI and SCADA systems are the gateway between the processes in the physical and the digital domain. SIMATIC WinCC Professional or WinCC V7 can be easily connected to the higher-level SAP HANA management system using an add-on, and the WinCC PM-OPEN HOST/S add-on allows the automatic generation of measurement documents in SAP ERP. Connect your SIMATIC SCADA solutions directly with cloud solutions – for example, via the MQTT protocol /REST Interface  – or use the industrial IoT apps to link data from SCADA systems with the digital world of MindSphere to compare plant data at any time, boost plant performance, identify optimization opportunities, and ensure that the right decision is made every time, regardless of location. The new PM-MES interface enables the easy integration of PM-CONTROL & PM-QUALITY into MES systems. Adding the PM-MES interface provides a standardized and documented API for the MES and eliminates the need to create API scripts within the SCADA system.
