Scada Software Offers Options For Mobile
The Siemens Industry Automation Division extended the range of functions of the Simatic WinCC Scada (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) software in its latest Version 7.3 and added the Simatic WinCC/WebUX V7.3 option package for mobile applications.
The Configuration Studio in V7.3 now supports the central configuration of process data, messages, archiving and user management, and of texts in any languages. Communication options to current Simatic S7-1500 controllers have also been extended. Users can directly transfer tags with symbolic addressing and the system messages of the controllers can also be handled.
Simatic WinCC/WebUX V7.3 includes Internet-based and mobile, flexible access to plant data. The package, which can be used across all industrial sectors, is suitable for a wide range of users from executive and production line management to service and maintenance. WinCC/WebUX V7.3 offers effective access to automation data from any location. Configuration of the HTML5 Web pages is carried out with WinCC Designer. Maintenance concepts, tasks for operations control or plant performance metrics are available at any location, regardless of the platform. The new option package also supports remote access to the production process.
Simatic WinCC/WebUX V7.3 is independent of any platform or browser and does not require client installation. For secure communication, https and SSL are implemented via Web standards (HTML5, SVG). User management is integrated in WinCC. The licensing model is scaled according to the required functional scope and number of users. Simatic WinCC V7.3 already includes a license for WebUX access for monitoring purposes.
