With the SIMATIC WinCC (TIA Portal), SIMATIC WinCC and SIMATIC WinCC Open Architecture product families, SIMATIC HMI covers the entire engineering and visualization software spectrum for the human machine interface.
Almost the entire range of SIMATIC operator panels can be configured with SIMATIC WinCC (TIA Portal), the successor to SIMATIC WinCC flexible.
The functionality covers both visualization tasks at machine level and SCADA applications on PC-based multi-user systems.
The current version 7.4 of SIMATIC WinCC is available for extremely complex process visualization tasks and SCADA applications, e.g. taking account of redundant solutions and vertical integration all the way to plant intelligence solutions.
Ultimately, SIMATIC WinCC Open Architecture addresses applications that require extensive customer-specific adaptations or manage large and/or complex applications, as well as projects that demand special system requirements and functions.
V7 Control room
As semi-finished products, galvanized steel sheets play a key role in industrial production, such as car manufacturing. One proven method of protecting steel sheets from rust is the application of a zinc coating in a hot dip galvanizing process, in which strips of sheet steel are drawn through a bath containing liquid zinc. Plants for this process are complex and in continuous operation, thus placing high demands on the process control system and the hardware used.
Advantages of the SIMATIC SCADA system and SIMATIC IPC solution:
SIMATIC WinCC V7 SCADA control system whose scalability and openness also permits the implementation of future functional expansions.
Redundant setup of the control system and operating stations with industry-compatible SIMATIC industrial PCs and Thin Clients.
Optimum overview thanks to multi-monitor solution in the control room and more than 27 operating stations throughout the plant and production hall.
Availability of the production data over a long period in SIMATIC Process Historian for reasons of traceability.
Increased productivity using long-term analyses of plant availability, productivity, energy consumption and quality.
More effective support and shorter downtimes thanks to fast, web-based access to plants with the SIMATIC WinCC WebNavigator.
