SIEMENS SIMATIC Information Server – SCADA Software
The SIMATIC Information Server gives you transparent access to plant information at any time. Historical plant data can be simply compiled in web-based dashboards or reports without programming knowledge.
This ensures comprehensive access to plant information for each target group in the company (managers, quality assurance, maintenance) at all times.
Full transparency of historical WinCC data (WinCC Archive and SIMATIC Process Historian)
Uniform and independent of version for different data sources
Efficient, web-based analysis through clearly structured dashboards and automated reports
Process information can be compiled online during runtime
Quick generation of standard reports through prepared templates
Individual reports based on the Microsoft Reporting Services
Cyclic activation of reports based on demands or events and forwarded by email, if necessary
Simple analysis with MS Office through integration in MS Word, MS Excel or MS PowerPoint
Plant information at any time – from any location: Web-based analyses also on mobile devices
Design and functions
The integrated reporting system, based on the Microsoft SQL Server Reporting Services, creates and manages dashboards and reports interactively and makes them available on the web at any time. Integration in Microsoft Word, Excel or PowerPoint also lets you access historical data using the tools you know from the Office environment.
By making the SIMATIC Information Server available for a variety of products, it can be used for any WinCC system even across different versions. The SIMATIC Information Server is also used as a reporting system for the SIMATIC Process Historian.
Existing knowledge can be optimally reused thanks to the integrated analysis of data from different sources with only only reporting tool. Comprehensive analyses with a uniform look and feel create transparency and show weak points. Necessary optimization measures can be developed quickly and efficiently to increase plant productivity and availability.
The SIMATIC Information Server is installed on a separate PC or on a WinCC single-user station, WinCC server or WinCC client.
The SIMATIC Information Server basic package comprises the software, three client access licenses and 1 data ressource license. This gives access to one data source for up to three clients at a time.
The number of simultaneous client access operations can be incremented at any time using Information Server client access licenses.
Additional data sources can be integrated at any time using additive data source licenses.
SIMATIC Information Server 2014 SP2 works with SIMATIC Process Historian 2014 SP2. Use
PCS 7 V8 or WinCC V7 as the data source.
