SIMATIC HMI Software – so much more than visualization software


From project planning and visualization software to powerful SCADA systems with Plant Intelligence – with SIMATIC HMI we offer you the entire range of SIMATIC HMI software. The goal in developing our software is to make HMI as efficient and convenient as possible for operator control – through more flexibility, transparency and openness.

SIMATIC HMI software for tailored operator control

With three software packages, you always have the right engineering software at hand:
  • SIMATIC WinCC in the TIA Portal with the WinCC Basic versions for configuring Basic Panels
  • SIMATIC WinCC Comfort for more sophisticated panels 
  • SIMATIC WinCC Advanced for pc-based HMI-systems. This is also available as a stand-alone runtime software package that can be expanded via options.

Software for Basic HMI – simple visualization tasks performed at an affordable price

For simple applications with a limited quantity scale, the price-performance ratio is important in addition to fast and intuitive operation. Basic HMI is recommended here. The devices can be easily configured with the WinCC Basic Engineering Software, a budget priced subset of WinCC in the TIA Portal HMI. Of course, you can also use the more powerful versions of WinCC ES (TIA Portal). With SIMATIC HMI operator devices, the runtime software is on-board and, depending on the equipment hardware, this gives you different HMI functions and performance profiles.

Advanced HMI Software – Panel based: realize demanding HMI tasks with high comfort

If you are looking for a panel-based solution for more challenging applications with larger quantity scales, decide for Advanced HMI. As a user, you will benefit from excellent functionality and a wide range of devices and applications, with a choice of key or touch operation. Both a stationary and a mobile solution are available. The panels can be conveniently configured with WinCC Comfort (or higher), with a runtime module pre-installed on the device.

Advanced HMI Software – PC-based

Software for PC-based Advanced HMI – efficient performance of very challenging and complex HMI tasks

If production places particularly high demands on the quantity and type of information that must be processed and documented, a PC-based system is recommended. It offers the appropriate options for sufficient storage space, processing power, and data connectivity. Use WinCC Advanced (TIA Portal) Engineering Software and the separate Runtime Software Package WinCC Advanced (TIA Portal) Runtime for PC-based machine level HMI.

SCADA systems and software for process visualization

In factory automation as well in infrastructure applications, Siemens SCADA systems are redefining efficiency. Both SIMATIC WinCC Professional and WinCC V7 for operational management as well as SIMATIC WinCC OA for applications with highly customized requirements support international standards and platforms.

SIMATIC WinCC Professional – the SCADA system inside TIA Portal

Our SIMATIC HMI software includes SIMATIC WinCC Professional. It is a SCADA system perfectly integrated into the TIA Portal,  which best prepares you for the requirements related to the digitalization of production processes. The PC-based operating and monitoring system can be scaled flexibly: from simple single-user station to multi-user systems and cross-location solutions with web clients. The functionality of the system functionality can be expanded and tailored to your operator control needs with the options for WinCC RT Professional, overarching SCADA options and WinCC add-ons.



SIMATIC WinCC V7 – the scalable, open SCADA system

Our SIMATIC WinCC V7 SCADA software is an innovative, scalable system for process visualization with numerous high-performance functions for monitoring automated processes. Whether single-user or distributed multi-user system with redundant servers, you benefit from an open SCADA system for visualization of processes, SCADA applications with redundant solutions and vertical integration through to plant intelligence solutions. The functionality of the system can be expanded and tailored exactly to your needs with the options for SIMATIC WinCC V7, SIMATIC WinCC add-ons and the overarching SCADA options.

SIMATIC SCADA Systems and SIMATIC Industrial PCs together form a high-performance and reliable platform for data acquisition, evaluation and visualization. The harmonized, certified SIMATIC HMI hardware and software package offers the highest quality in all industries.



SIMATIC WinCC Open Architecture – the SCADA system without limits

Very large and/or complex applications, special system requirements and functions, globally distributed systems, or even higher-level, cross-system and cross-site control centers: with SIMATIC WinCC OA, you can build vendor and platform-independent SCADA systems. The scalable remote control software solutions enable unrestricted, worldwide access via the web – including native iOS and Android user interfaces.

Visualization system SIMATIC WinCC unified

The future of visualization starts now!

SIMATIC WinCC Unified is a totally new visualization system you can use to overcome the challenges digitalization in mechanical engineering and plant construction. This is all thanks to the latest hardware and software technologies, both now and in the future. It offers proven engineering in the TIA Portal, the latest web technology, and high-performance reserves for the years to come, so you can implement your ideas the way you imagine them.

HMI Template Suite: added value included

HMI Template Suite is the library for good HMI design. It helps you to create a modern and functional HMI design with templates, images and objects. The templates of the HMI Template Suite enable you to create your HMI solution based on an operating concept developed in collaboration with user interface experts. The result is a TIA Portal library that supports you with a variety of operating screens, dialogs and messages during project planning.
