Siemens expands WinCC by adding a flexible notification option

11.11.2011
The Siemens Industry Automation Division has expanded its Simatic WinCC V7 process visualization software with the Simatic WinCC Event Notifier option.

With this option, notifications and persons to be notified can be planned for any time slot and for different escalation levels. The recipients are then automatically informed by e-mail or SMS about the occurrence of an event selected from the WinCC message system, such as an operational fault or machine failure.


The Siemens Industry Automation Division has expanded its Simatic WinCC V7 process visualization software with the Simatic WinCC Event Notifier option for notifying selected persons of events in specified time slots.

The Siemens Industry Automation Division has expanded its Simatic WinCC V7 process visualization software with the Simatic WinCC Event Notifier option for notifying selected persons of events in specified time slots.

The Simatic WinCC Event Notifier option of the Siemens Industry Automation Division is directly connected to the WinCC message system. The clear calendar display makes it particularly easy to set a time slot and select the persons to be automatically notified when an event occurs. The user can define the reason for a notification based on the WinCC message system using various parameters such as location, priority, message class or message block content. If an event occurs during multi-shift continuous operation, for example, the Event Notifier is ideal for informing technical support about the exact location, machine involved and type of problem.

The persons to be notified can be directly selected in the application from the existing contacts of the WinCC User Administrator. Secure operation of the plant is ensured since the Event Notifier takes the various authentication levels into account. If several persons or groups of persons are set up for the same time slot, assigning different escalation times allows the user to implement individual escalation levels. If there is no reaction to an event notification within a specified time, persons belonging to the next higher level are automatically notified. As soon as a recipient responds to the event or the plant personnel themselves acknowledge the message, all previously contacted persons automatically receive a final acknowledgment message.

The Notifier provides freely selectable calendar views in which users can edit the individual time windows easily and define recurring events as serial events with any necessary exceptions. The calendar can be integrated as .Net Control in WinCC screens which allows clear representation and intuitive operation even during runtime. The flexible Event Notifier can be used for all typical WinCC plant configurations whether single-user, client/server, redundant system or in conjunction with the Web Navigator. The functions of the new option are based on the WinCC Calendar control.

Im Focus: Fizzy soda water could be key to clean manufacture of flat wonder material: Graphene

Whether you call it effervescent, fizzy, or sparkling, carbonated water is making a comeback as a beverage. Aside from quenching thirst, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have discovered a new use for these "bubbly" concoctions that will have major impact on the manufacturer of the world's thinnest, flattest, and one most useful materials -- graphene.

As graphene's popularity grows as an advanced "wonder" material, the speed and quality at which it can be manufactured will be paramount. With that in mind,...

Im Focus: Exotic quantum states made from light: Physicists create optical “wells” for a super-photon

Physicists at the University of Bonn have managed to create optical hollows and more complex patterns into which the light of a Bose-Einstein condensate flows. The creation of such highly low-loss structures for light is a prerequisite for complex light circuits, such as for quantum information processing for a new generation of computers. The researchers are now presenting their results in the journal Nature Photonics.

Light particles (photons) occur as tiny, indivisible portions. Many thousands of these light portions can be merged to form a single super-photon if they are...

Im Focus: Circular RNA linked to brain function

For the first time, scientists have shown that circular RNA is linked to brain function. When a RNA molecule called Cdr1as was deleted from the genome of mice, the animals had problems filtering out unnecessary information – like patients suffering from neuropsychiatric disorders.

While hundreds of circular RNAs (circRNAs) are abundant in mammalian brains, one big question has remained unanswered: What are they actually good for? In the...

Im Focus: RAVAN CubeSat measures Earth's outgoing energy

An experimental small satellite has successfully collected and delivered data on a key measurement for predicting changes in Earth's climate.

The Radiometer Assessment using Vertically Aligned Nanotubes (RAVAN) CubeSat was launched into low-Earth orbit on Nov. 11, 2016, in order to test new...

Im Focus: Scientists shine new light on the “other high temperature superconductor”

A study led by scientists of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science in Hamburg presents evidence of the coexistence of superconductivity and “charge-density-waves” in compounds of the poorly-studied family of bismuthates. This observation opens up new perspectives for a deeper understanding of the phenomenon of high-temperature superconductivity, a topic which is at the core of condensed matter research since more than 30 years. The paper by Nicoletti et al has been published in the PNAS.

Since the beginning of the 20th century, superconductivity had been observed in some metals at temperatures only a few degrees above the absolute zero (minus...
