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.

Material defects in end products can quickly result in failures in many areas of industry, and have a massive impact on the safe use of their products. This is why, in the field of quality assurance, intelligent, nondestructive sensor systems play a key role. They allow testing components and parts in a rapid and cost-efficient manner without destroying the actual product or changing its surface. Experts from the Fraunhofer IZFP in Saarbrücken will be presenting two exhibits at the Blechexpo in Stuttgart from 7–10 November 2017 that allow fast, reliable, and automated characterization of materials and detection of defects (Hall 5, Booth 5306).
When quality testing uses time-consuming destructive test methods, it can result in enormous costs due to damaging or destroying the products. And given that...
