System overview

Where IOT becomes reality

The WinCC OA IOT Suite makes it possible to retroactively digitalize existing plants with the aid of sensors and actuators. The solution is scalable for simple as well as complex automation applications and can be commissioned in less than an hour.

Central distribution of software and updates works right out of your plant infrastructure, with fully automatic and time-controlled deployment. There is an available cloud connection via IOT-Repository, which is however optional and not required for operation.

A variety of IOT apps enable easy and intuitive operation without specialized knowledge or training. The base installation includes apps for PLC configuration, data mapping and dashboarding, other digital functions, e.g. for equipment efficiency calculations (OEE) can be installed via IOT-OPA. Additionally, SIMATIC WinCC OA partners can distribute their own individually adapted solutions via IOT-Repository.
Enjoy the benefits of reliable data acquisition directly at the machine, a secure, fault-free linking connection of IT and OT, and data-based optimization of production and maintenance.
