WinCC options are evidence of the modular expandability and the universal application of WinCC which is the core for a whole range of different applications. The WinCC option packages are produced in the context of WinCC development. As the basic WinCC software they are supported by the technical advisory service and the central hotline.
The universal WinCC basic software is the basis for modular expansions. These functional expansions can be obtained in the form of WinCC options and as WinCC Premium add-ons.
Options for scalable plant configurations
For configuring a powerful client/server system
For increasing system availability through redundancy
