Efficient and uniform handling of operator control and monitoring tasks

24.11.2010
The new Simatic WinCC V11 HMI software from the Siemens Industry Automation Division is suitable for everything from machine-level applications to process visualization.

Simatic WinCC V11 is based on the new central engineering framework Totally Integrated Automation Portal (TIA Portal) and is closely coordinated with the other engineering software products of the Simatic family, such as Simatic Step 7 V11 for Simatic controllers. This avoids multiple and incorrect entries in projects and guarantees consistent data at all times thanks to centralized data management in the TIA Portal. Simatic WinCC V11 offers users uniform engineering across all HMI device classes of the existing Basic Panels and new Comfort Panels, right up to Scada (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) process visualization.


Simatic WinCC V11 uses the operating philosophy of the TIA Portal and is characterized by intuitive and efficient HMI configuring (Human Machine Interface), even for complex tasks. The simple, uniform handling of different software products creates high efficiency, especially in conjunction with the Simatic Step 7 V11 engineering software for Simatic controllers. For all applications from panels to Scada, the same editors are used with identical representation of the functions. Data transfer between the individual operator panels is simple, using drag & drop, for example. The previously required synchronization is no longer necessary thanks to permanently consistent data management in the TIA Portal.

Simatic WinCC V11 is the logical further development of the HMI software from Siemens. In engineering, new functionalities include symbolic addressing on the Simatic S7-1200 controllers, an integrated library concept, and new library objects. The runtime functions have also been expanded. They now include F(x) Control for the new Comfort Panels and PC single-user systems, diverse communications drivers for third-party systems, and OPC UA (OPC Unified Architecture), as well as expansions in the case of recipes, such as loading data sets back into the engineering system.

The new Simatic WinCC V11 HMI software is available in different versions: WinCC Basic for the Simatic Basic Panels and WinCC Comfort for all Simatic Panels. WinCC Advanced in combination with WinCC Runtime Advanced additionally supports PC-based visualization at the machine level. The WinCC Professional version also offers extensive Scada functionality.

Im Focus: Giant Magnetic Fields in the Universe

Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.

The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.

Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...

Im Focus: Tracing down linear ubiquitination

Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.

Ubiquitin is a small protein that can be linked to other cellular proteins, thereby controlling and modulating their functions. The attachment occurs in many...

Im Focus: Polymer-coated silicon nanosheets as alternative to graphene: A perfect team for nanoelectronics

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.

Im Focus: Researchers Imitate Molecular Crowding in Cells

Enzymes behave differently in a test tube compared with the molecular scrum of a living cell. Chemists from the University of Basel have now been able to simulate these confined natural conditions in artificial vesicles for the first time. As reported in the academic journal Small, the results are offering better insight into the development of nanoreactors and artificial organelles.
