One-stop visualization software

Within the SIMATIC HMI product category, we offer a comprehensive HMI software portfolio. The range runs from configuration software to software for machine-oriented visualization to powerful SCADA systems with Plant Intelligence. Our objective for our software development is to make HMI as efficient as possible by making it more flexible, transparent and open.

Software for machine level visualization

SIMATIC WinCC (TIA Portal) comprises Engineering Software in the variants WinCC Basic for configuring Basic Panels, WinCC Comfort for the more sophisticated panels, and WinCC Advanced for the engineering of pc-based HMI-sytems. WinCC Advanced is also available as Runtime Software Packages, which can be expanded by options.

Software for Basic HMI - Panel based

Software for Basic HMI - Simple visualization tasks economically realized

Basic HMI is recommended for simple applications with a limited quantity scale and where the price-performance ratio is important in addition to a fast and intuitive operation.
Devices can be easily configured using the WinCC Basic Engineering Software, a budget priced subset of WinCC (TIA Portal).
Ofcourse you can use the more sophisticated variants of WinCC ES (TIA Portal) as well.
With SIMATIC HMI operator devices, the runtime software is on-board and, depending on the equipments hardware, this gives you different HMI functionality and performance profiles.

Software for Advanced HMI - Panel based

Software for panel based advanced HMI -  Demanding tasks realized with a high level of convenience

If you are looking for a panel-based solution for more demanding applications with larger quantity scales, make a decision for Advanced HMI.

The user benefits from excellent functionality and a wide range of devices and applications, with key or touch operation. Both stationary and mobile solutions are available.

The Panels can be coveniently configured by employing WinCC Comfort (TIA Portal) or higher with a Runtime Module already pre-installed on the device.

Software for Advanced HMI - PC-based

Software for PC-based Advanced HMI - Efficient realization of most demanding 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 Packages 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 Open Architecture for applications with highly customer-specific adaptation requirements support international standards and platforms.

SIMATIC WinCC Professional

SIMATIC WinCC Professional  - the SCADA system inside TIA Portal

With WinCC Professional, Siemens offers a SCADA system which is perfectly integrated in the TIA Portal and with which you are optimally prepared today for the requirements of the increasing digitalization of production processes. The PC-based operator control and monitoring system for visualization and operator control of processes, production flows, machines and plants in all sectors – from the simple single-user station through to distributed multi-user systems and cross-location solutions with web clients.
The sytems functionality can be further expanded by employing options for WinCC RT Professional or SCADA options.


SIMATIC WinCC V7 -The scalable and open SCADA system for maximum plant transparency and productivity

With SIMATIC WinCC V7, you choose an innovative, scalable process-visualization system with numerous high-performance functions for monitoring automated processes. Whether in a single-user system or a distributed multi-user system with redundant servers, you will benefit from an open system that offers complete functionality for all industries and for highly complex visualization tasks and for SCADA applications, for example with redundant solutions and vertical integration extending up to plant intelligence solutions.
The sytems functionality can be further expanded by employing options and add-ons for WinC V7 or multi-platform SCADA options.
The SIMATIC SCADA systems and SIMATIC Industrial PCs together form a high-performance and reliable platform for the acquisition, evaluation, and visualization of data. The harmonized and certified total package of hardware and software offers the highest quality in all industries.

SIMATIC WinCC Open Architecture

SIMATIC WinCC Open Architecture - The SCADA system without limits

SIMATIC WinCC Open Architecture is designed for applications of large scale and high complexity as well as projects with special requirements on system prerequisites and customized functionality. With SIMATIC WinCC OA, you can build vendor- and platform-independent SCADA system that are scalable and offer unlimited global access over the web – even over native iOS and Android user interfaces.

Added value

HMI Template Suite

The library for good HMI design. The HMI Template Suite provides templates, images and objects to help you create a modern, and intuitive HMI design.

The templates in the HMI Template Suite provide the tools to allow you to create your own HMI solution based on an operating concept that has been developed in collaboration with user interface experts. The result is a TIA Portal library that supports you with a broad selection of operating screens, dialogs and messages during configuration
