Alarm Management System ACC- Fast and reliable alarm systems for production disruptions

Barely happened – already reacted


With modern operating and observation systems, fast and reliable signaling of disruption states to the relevant responsible person is becoming more and more important.

The modular Alarm Control Center takes these requirements into account by fully automatically sending alarms and messages from WinCC to a wide range of possible recipients:

  • Push-messages to iphone and Android apps
  • Voice output to telephones
  • Text output to pagers and telephones
  • SMS to smartphones and cellphones
  • E-mail to suitable devices

The modular and scalable architecture of the Alarm Control Center and the wide range of options enable an individual adaptation to the operator’s requirements from the stand-alone solution to company-wide communication solutions.

Functions

  • Apps for iphone and Android smartphones with intuitive operation
  • Integrated shift and personnel management for time-dependent delivery of messages to different persons
  • Extensive escalation system for reliable delivery of messages even when individual recipients cannot be reached
  • Network-wide operation and configuration using web capabilities
  • Integration of operation and project planning by the control room staff in WinCC process pictures while using the ACC Control for WinCC for control room staff

Options

  • Text output of alarms as SMS to pagers and telephones by Ascom, to HiPath / OpenScape telephones and also e-mail
  • Voice output to telephones and smartphones
  • Redundancy for highly available systems

DCC Translation Editor - Translation and maintenance of multi-lingual visualizations

The DCC Translation Editor 4.2 SIMATIC Edition is the only professional translation tool specializing in the convenient and efficient editing and maintenance of multi-lingual SIMATIC configurations. File export formats from WinCC(TIA Portal) V11, V12 and all other conventional WinCC and WinCC flexible versions can be read in, intuitively edited, translated and then written correctly. Neither the development environment nor Runtime are required for this purpose.

 

Advantages provided by the DCC Translation Editor: improved quality and considerably reduced workload for multiple languages.Users benefit from the following features

  • Easy identification of translation errors, incorrect numbers and missing punctuation marks
     with seven quality assurance filters

  • Assured fit into process visualization due to marking of excessively long translations

  • Format protection due to complete file handling with translation outside of the configuration

  • TIA-ready and future-proof due to continuous further development

  • Support of all configuration languages incl. Chinese, Thai, Russian and Arabic

     

Secure and efficient workflow
The configuration engineer exports the WinCC texts and messages and gives both the files and the Translation Editor to the translator. The translator translates the WinCC texts in the Translation Editor. Because the interface is shown in a clear table format, operation is simple, efficient and task-oriented.

Thanks to the seven quality assurance filters, the translator can reliably detect common translation errors such as punctuation errors and incorrect numbers, as well as excessively long translations, and can ensure that each term is translated consistently in all pictures.

Translation in the DCC Translation Editor provides a 100% guarantee that the format is safeguarded: the structure and format of the export files remain unchanged. Headers, footers, variables and the source language are protected from deletion. This prevents errors in visualization as well as costly and time-consuming error localization processes.

Even without knowledge of the target language, the configuration engineer can check the delivered translation for completeness, accuracy and quality by means of the quality assurance filters. The translation can then be imported into the visualization project without problems.

Engineers can concentrate on configuring, translators can translate efficiently.

IEC 61850 Communication channel - Enabling data exchange with IEC 61850 devices

IEC 61850 is the globally valid standard for communication in electrical protective systems and medium-voltage switchgear.
All leading manufacturers have therefore already implemented IEC 61850 in their control and protective equipment. The open standard means simpler configuration, compatibility with future expansions, lower maintenance costs, and thus lower life cycle costs.
The communication channel makes it possible to operate and monitor IEC 61850-enabled devices with WinCC. This means the automation of a production plant can be expanded by the addition of support for IEC 61850 devices for the electrical system

 

Benefits

  • Simple integration of high-voltage and medium-voltage level electrical devices into the SIMATIC HMI world

  • A SIMATIC system for production plants and electrical systems

  • Security of investment thanks to globally valid IEC 61850 standard

  • Powerful communication

  • Simple configuration and expandability

  • Configuration
    The wizard included in the scope of delivery is used to configure data communication via IEC 61850 with an IED (intelligent electric device). It provides the option of importing the .icd configuration file of the device. Alternatively, the wizard can also access the device online and upload the current configuration. The tags and alarms selected by the user are then transferred to the WinCC data management system.
  • Communication
    The IEC 61850 communication channel is an IEC 61850 MMS client. It establishes a connection to each of the configured IEC 61850 MMS server devices. This enables read/write data communication with the devices. Buffered reports continue to be supported: Status changes reported by the device are inserted with time stamp in the WinCC alarm logging system.
  • Diagnostics
    The accompanying values for measured values of the control and protective equipment, such as quality codes, are transferred in the same way as diagnostics information on the connection status of each device. This ensures detailed communication diagnostics are available.
  • Functionality
    The communication channel enables data exchange with IEC 61850 devices. The station controller or the SICAM PAS solution package is available for automation tasks or for connecting devices and control centers.
