Scada software goes mobile

03.07.2014
  • Simatic WinCC/WebUX V7.3 option package meets growing demand for mobile access to Scada applications
  • Mobile access to production metrics and remote access to the production process
  • Simatic WinCC V7.3 Scada software boosts engineering efficiency

The Siemens Industry Automation Division has 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 Siemens Industry Automation Division has 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.

Simatic WinCC V7.3 focuses on making engineering easier. The Configuration Studio 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: it is now possible to directly transfer tags with symbolic addressing and the system messages of the controllers can also be handled.

The new Simatic WinCC/WebUX V7.3 option package solution from Siemens meets the growing demand for access at any time to plant information using Internet-based and mobile devices. Simatic WinCC/WebUX V7.3 goes beyond the usual control center solutions on offer today to include just such 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 within any company. From executive and production line management to service and maintenance, WinCC/WebUX V7.3 offers effective access to automation data from any location. This mobile access to information can be adapted precisely to meet individual needs. Configuration of the HTML5 Web pages is carried out with WinCC Designer. No special training is required for the WinCC application designer. Innovative maintenance concepts, tasks for operations control or plant performance metrics can be made available in this way at any location, regardless of the platform. This enables management, for example, to keep an eye on production data at all times, while quality assurance is always aware of current processes in production such as fault messages or trends. In addition, the new option package also supports remote access to the production process. For example, the user can specify switching operations and setpoints for remote operation.

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.

Im Focus: Energy-autonomous and wireless monitoring protects marine gearboxes

The IPH presents a solution at HANNOVER MESSE 2015 to make ship traffic more reliable while decreasing the maintenance costs at the same time. In cooperation with project partners, the research institute from Hannover, Germany, has developed a sensor system which continuously monitors the condition of the marine gearbox, thus preventing breakdowns. Special feature: the monitoring system works wirelessly and energy-autonomously. The required electrical power is generated where it is needed – directly at the sensor.

As well as cars need to be certified regularly (in Germany by the TÜV – Technical Inspection Association), ships need to be inspected – if the powertrain stops...

Im Focus: Atlantic Ocean overturning found to slow down already today

The Atlantic overturning is one of Earth’s most important heat transport systems, pumping warm water northwards and cold water southwards. Also known as the Gulf Stream system, it is responsible for the mild climate in northwestern Europe. 

Scientists now found evidence for a slowdown of the overturning – multiple lines of observation suggest that in recent decades, the current system has been...

Im Focus: Robot inspects concrete garage floors and bridge roadways for damage

Because they are regularly subjected to heavy vehicle traffic, emissions, moisture and salt, above- and underground parking garages, as well as bridges, frequently experience large areas of corrosion. Most inspection systems to date have only been capable of inspecting smaller surface areas.

From April 13 to April 17 at the Hannover Messe (hall 2, exhibit booth C16), engineers from the Fraunhofer Institute for Nondestructive Testing IZFP will be...
