WinCC Unified grows according to your application requirements
SIMATIC WinCC Unified is scalable – from a single-user system to complex, distributed applications. With one unified software platform based on native web technologies, WinCC Unified already meets the requirements for a visualization system of the future.
Remote access via web
Maintenance-free web clients provide flexible remote access to the visualization via web browser, without any additional software. Through web standards, encrypted communication protocols, and certificates, WinCC Unified also provides maximum security against unauthorized access.
Depending on the requirements and application, process data can be file-based or archived in a powerful database. As it is easy to handle, the file-based variant is suitable for small and medium-sized applications.
Extendable with options
For further customer applications, WinCC Unified offers options for calculating key performance indicators and structured planning of production processes. Processes for controlling and monitoring recipe-controlled processes can be orchestrated more quickly and adapted more easily.
News and highlights for SIMATIC WinCC Unified
New releases of the process management add-ons make the difference
With PM-CONTROL, recipe management and order control are easily automated, and with PM-QUALITY, batch data can be recorded, processed and archived to ensure a comprehensive quality management system.
SIMATIC IPC and SIMATIC HMI: Hardware and software from a single source
Packages with WinCC for powerful data acquisition, evaluation, and visualization: Decide for the Siemens system solution with optimally matched hardware and software. You’ll not only benefit from a special price, but also from many other advantages of the complete packages.
Learn from our experts how you can optimally solve typical challenges in the visualization of information with SIMATIC WinCC Unified.
IT and OT perfectly combined
Thanks to its powerful and open interfaces, SIMATIC WinCC Unified is able to integrate other software (for example from the IT environment) and to integrate it in a uniform operating concept. This makes WinCC Unified an integration platform for linking data from production with data from the IT world.
Consistent engineering from panel to SCADA system
SIMATIC WinCC Unified allows the free design user interfaces with a huge variety of graphical features and reusability of all elements. This saves time and money because every design can be used on a panel and on a PC or SCADA system alike. Thanks to the use of vector-based SVG graphics, images can be scaled as desired while staying crystal clear. HTML5 support makes it possible to monitor and control machines and plants via HMTL5 enabled mobile devices.
Everything you need to get started smoothly
On this page we have collected all the information you need to get started with the WinCC Unified System. In addition to general information, you will also find demo projects and a guide for the changeover..
Here are some good points in favor of the SIMATIC WinCC Unified System.
Highlights of SIMATIC WinCC Unified PC
The data interface on the server side provides access to online and historical data and alarms with .net or C++ programming, for individual solutions, such as the exchange of data with external databases or IT systems.
WinCC Unified provides an object-oriented approach to the structuring of the automation solution in engineering.
In operation, this structure supports plant management, for example, by automatically collecting faults within the hierarchy.
Options for distributed system
The database option uses a powerful SQL Server to archive large amounts of data (up to a maximum number of tags). It thus provides the basis for in-depth analysis of historical data and the tracing of processes over long periods of time.
Extendable options for your requirements
This option enables the visualization of a structured planning of the production processes. It is used to define running times of machines and plants and to create standard templates for regular production days and shifts. Furthermore, the calendar function can be used to plan the process execution relative to a timeline.
Performance Insight provides the user with a formula editor for calculating individual key performance indicators (KPIs) according to ISO standard 22400, as well as a comprehensive selection of WinCC controls for their display and analysis. Furthermore, the result of calculated KPIs can be reported.
With the Plant Intelligence oOption Sequence (SES), standardized production sequences (ISA88) and parameters can be changed quickly and easily without changing the PLC program. Furthermore, the overview of the manufacturing steps and their status can be shown.
With WinCC Unified Line Coordination, recipe and batch-controlled production processes can be automated. Complex production sequences of interlinked machines in the production line can be coordinated, synchronized and monitored based on SIMATIC S7-1500 and WinCC Unified.
Process Management Add-ons at a glance
With PM-CONTROL, recipe management and order processing can be automated, because: Manufacturing specifications, recipes and parameter sets are used for providing production set points in all kinds of industries and must be managed, monitored for changes in a powerful database and be clearly displayed to ensure operational quality. Production orders are created based on these set points in order to provide plan able shop floor operation.
As part of a comprehensive quality management system, PM-QUALITY is used to collect, process and archive batch data, such as trends, alarms, production target and actual values, audit trails and laboratory values. Its powerful data archiving functions enable convenient creation of appealing and comprehensive production reports for batch processes.
