Siemens SIMATIC WinCC Programming

SIMATIC WINCC is one of the most powerful SCADA software packages available today and ITS is one of the leading systems integrators using WinCC to enhance manufacturing performance. ITS has developed many WinCC applications, from single user WinCC applications communicating with one Siemens PLC to large systems with four pairs of redundant servers, redundant Web servers and over 100 disparate PLCs.

Siemens SIMATIC HMI Panel Family

WinCC is available as a basic system in the form of WinCC Flexible for use on a range of operator, micro panels and panel PCs, that are designed for use with S7-200 & 300 applications.  WinCC enables the visualisation of production flows, operating processes, machines and systems in all areas.  It is also a fully flexible and scalable system for use with a simple single-user system through to distributed multi-user systems, with redundant servers and multi-site solutions and with Web clients.

When using WinCC with a Simatic controller, the WinCC software directly accesses the tag and message configuration and can also use the communication parameters reducing development and time-consuming multiple entries of database configuration.  This then enables WinCC to be integrated more closely with the Simatic controller, reducing engineering and lifecycle costs, and enabling the integration of diagnostics functionality that can support maintenance operations.

WinCC can also communicate with other third party devices and controllers via OPC using suitable OPC servers.

The WinCC alarm systems can record process signals and local events, saves them in archives and makes them available, sorted or filtered as required. Alarms can also result from analogue alarms due to a number of limit value violations.  Each alarm can be configured to ensure that the operator has to acknowledge it.  Alarms are displayed on the screen using the user configurable alarm display which can be an alarm banner or a number of specific alarm or message pages.

By applying WinCC, ITS’ team can also provide input to other elements of Simatic IT to give true shop floor to top floor seamless integration.

A line of innovative and flexible expandable HMI/SCADA products from Siemens has allowed us to develop modular, flexible, and easily scalable HMI/SCADA systems.

SCADA system SIMATIC WinCC is a scalable process visualization system with powerful functions for monitoring automated processes. WinCC provides complete SCADA functionality under Windows for all sectors – from single user to distributed multi-user systems with redundant servers and cross-location solutions with web clients.

SIMATIC WinCC Open Architecture is a SCADA system for visualizing and operating of processes, production flows, machines and plants in all lines of business. Distributed systems enable any number of stand-alone systems, from 2 to 2048, to be linked via a network.
Each subsystem can be configured either as a single-user or multi-user system, redundant or not, in each case. SIMATIC WinCC Open Architecture relies consistently on object orientation for process images and the database structure.


SIMATIC WinCC (TIA Portal) is the newest HMI software that spans from simple applications using Basic Panels through SCADA applications using WinCC Professional on PC-based multi-user systems.

WinCC (TIA Portal) is the software for all HMI applications ranging from the simplest operation solutions with Basic Panels to SCADA applications on PC-based multi-user systems.

The range of solutions is thus increased significantly compared to the predecessor product, SIMATIC WinCC flexible.


SIMATIC WinCC flexible is the HMI software under Windows that was the predecessor to SIMATIC WinCC (TIA Portal) for all machine-level applications in machine, series machine, and plant construction.

The WinCC flexible Engineering Software was used to configure SIMATIC operator devices of the x70 and x77 series from small Micro Panels to powerful Multi Panels as well as PC-based HMI with WinCC flexible Runtime SW.

Siemens supports the user in modernizing and migrating his automation solutions in general and the visualization solutions in special as well. See the information and services offer to the right.
