SIMATIC WinCC V7 Overview

  • PC-based operator control and monitoring system for visualizing and operating processes, production flows, machines and plants in all sectors – from the simple single-user station through to distributed multi-user systems with redundant servers and cross-location solutions with web clients. WinCC is the information hub for corporation-wide vertical integration.
  • The basic system configuration (WinCC basic software) includes industry-standard functions for signaling and acknowledging events, archiving of messages and measured values, logging of all process and configuration data, user administration and visualization.
  • The WinCC basic software forms the core of a wide range of different applications. Based on the open programming interfaces, a wide range of WinCC options (from Siemens Industry Automation) and WinCC add-ons have been developed (by Siemens-internal and external partners).
  • WinCC can be operated with every PC that meets the given HW requirements. The SIMATIC IPC product range is available in particular for the industrial use of WinCC systems.

Application

Application

SIMATIC WinCC is designed for visualization and operation of processes, manufacturing cycles, machines and plants. With its powerful process interface, especially to the SIMATIC family, and the secure data archiving, WinCC enables highly available solutions for the process control.

The sector-neutral basic system enables universal usage in all automation applications. Sector-specific solutions can, for example, be implemented using WinCC options (e.g. FDA options for the pharmaceutical industry) and sector-specific add-ons (e.g. for the water industry).

Design

Design

SIMATIC WinCC is available as a complete package and as a runtime package with 128, 512, 2 048, 8 192, 65 536, 102 400, 153 600, 262 144 PowerTags. PowerTags are data points that are connected to controllers or other data sources over a WinCC channel. Up to 32 alarms can be obtained from one data point. Moreover, internal tags without coupling are available for additional system performance. In addition WinCC also contains 512 archive tags. Additional archive licenses can be obtained for larger quantity structures.

Licenses for a multi-user configuration

The system software with the required number of PowerTags and additionally the option WinCC/Server must be installed on the WinCC server. In the basic configuration, one RT Client License is sufficient for the WinCC Clients 1). An RC Client License is required to configure on clients 1). Remote configuration is possible if WinCC Clients without their own project (Uni Client) are configured on the server project.

1) The SQL Server Express is installed for RT / RC Clients.

Function

Function

The powerful configuration functions of SIMATIC WinCC contribute to a reduced engineering and training overhead and lead to a more flexible use of personnel and greater operational reliability.

Anyone familiar with Microsoft Windows can also operate the WinCC Explorer, the central switching point of WinCC. Even large quantities of data can be processed intuitively and efficiently with the WinCC Configuration Studio.

In combination with other SIMATIC components, the system is also equipped with auxiliary functions, such as process diagnostics and maintenance. All SIMATIC engineering tools work together in the configuration of the functions.

SIMATIC WinCC offers a complete basic functionality for process visualization and operation. To this end WinCC has a number of editors and interfaces that can be used to individually configure this functionality according to the respective application. Expansions of a WinCC station for control tasks are also possible with minimal engineering effort.

Standard interfaces

For the open integration of other Windows applications via WinCC, WinCC-OLE-DB, ActiveX, OLE, DDE, OPC, etc.)

Programming interfaces

For the individual access to data and functions of WinCC and for the integration in user programs with VBA, VB Script, C-API (ODK), C-Script (ANSI-C)

Integration

Integration

Integration in company-wide solutions (IT and business integration)

WinCC is based on Microsoft technology, which ensures openness and integration capability. ActiveX and .net controls facilitate technology-specific and industry-specific expansions. Cross-manufacturer communication is also possible since WinCC can be used as an OPC client and server in addition to accessing current process values and supporting standards such as OPC HDA (Historical Data Access), OPC Alarm & Events, OPC XML Data Access, and OPC UA.

Just as important: Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) is available for user-specific expansions in engineering and Visual Basic Scripting (VBS) as an easy-to-learn, open, runtime language. If desired, professional application developers can also use ANSI-C. The Open Development Kit (ODK) simplifies access to the API programming interfaces.

WinCC integrates a powerful and scalable archiving functionality based on Microsoft SQL Server 2014 SP1 into the basic system. This gives the user multiple and varied options: from high-performance archiving of current process data, to long-term archiving with high data compression, through to a connection to the central information hub in the form of a company-wide Process Historian. Versatile clients and tools for evaluation, the open interfaces, and special options (Connectivity Pack, Connectivity Station, IndustrialDataBridge) provide the basis for effective IT and business integration.

WinCC offers various security mechanisms, such as encrypted communication, to ensure secure operation of the plant. If external networks are accessed, for example, suitable protective measures (incl. IT security measures, such as network segmentation) should still also be taken.

You can find more information on the topic of Industrial Security on the Internet at:

Integration in automation solutions

WinCC is an open process visualization system and provides the option to connect the most diverse control systems.

Approved communication software

Use communication software with the listed product versions (or higher). Corresponding SIMATIC NET upgrades are available for upgrading older versions.

Number of connectable controllers

For the number of controllers which can be connected via Industrial Ethernet CP 1613, the following applies to a message frame length of 512 bytes:

Type of connection

Number of nodes

SIMATIC S5 Ethernet Layer 4 + TCP/IP

up to 60

SIMATIC S7 Protocol Suite

up to 64

SIMATIC 505 Ethernet Layer 4 + TCP/IP

OMS+

up to 60

up to 128

Via PROFIBUS, a maximum of 8 controllers can be connected with CP 5612, and a maximum of 44 controllers with CP 5613. Industrial Ethernet is recommended when 10 or more controllers are used.

Mixed operation with different controllers

With their multi-protocol stack, the CP 1613 and CP 5613 communication processors enable the parallel operation of two protocols, such as for the mixed operation of different controllers, via a single bus cable. WinCC supports the operation of two similar interface boards only in connection with the channels SIMATIC S5 Ethernet Layer 4 (2 x CP 1613), SIMATIC S7 Protocol Suite (2 x CP 1613, 2 x CP 5613) as well as PROFIBUS DP (4 x CP 5613; max. 122 slaves for each CP 5613). In addition to communication via Industrial Ethernet CP 1613 or PROFIBUS CP 5613, one CP 5612/5622 can be used in each case for communication with SIMATIC S7 via MPI.

Client-server communication

Communication between the clients and the server is via TCP/IP protocol. Setting up a separate PC LAN is recommended. For small projects with a correspondingly low incidence of message frames, SIMATIC NET Industrial Ethernet communication can be used for both process communication (WinCC/server ↔ PLC) and PC-PC communication (WinCC/client ↔ WinCC/server).

Channel DLL PROFIBUS DP

In accordance with the PROFIBUS standard, DP/slaves are always permanently assigned to a DP master; i.e. a second WinCC station (DP/master) cannot access the same controllers (DP/slaves). This means that redundant operation of two WinCC stations is not possible using the PROFIBUS DP connection.

Connection to controllers from other manufacturers:

If a native driver is not available, OPC (OLE for process control) is available for connection to third-party controllers.

Current notes and information about OPC servers from various suppliers can be found at:

WinCC supports the standards:

  • OPC Data Access 2.05a
  • OPC Data Access 3.00
  • OPC XML Data Access 1.00 (Connectivity Pack/Connectivity Station)
  • OPC HDA 1.20 (Connectivity Pack/Connectivity Station)
  • OPC A&E 1.10 (Connectivity Pack/Connectivity Station)
  • OPC UA Client Data Access
  • OPC UA Server Data Access, HDA, Alarm & Condition (Connectivity Pack / Connectivity Station)
