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: Future electronic components to be printed like newspapers

A new manufacturing technique uses a process similar to newspaper printing to form smoother and more flexible metals for making ultrafast electronic devices.

The low-cost process, developed by Purdue University researchers, combines tools already used in industry for manufacturing metals on a large scale, but uses...

Im Focus: First evidence on the source of extragalactic particles

For the first time ever, scientists have determined the cosmic origin of highest-energy neutrinos. A research group led by IceCube scientist Elisa Resconi, spokesperson of the Collaborative Research Center SFB1258 at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), provides an important piece of evidence that the particles detected by the IceCube neutrino telescope at the South Pole originate from a galaxy four billion light-years away from Earth.

To rule out other origins with certainty, the team led by neutrino physicist Elisa Resconi from the Technical University of Munich and multi-wavelength...

Im Focus: Magnetic vortices: Two independent magnetic skyrmion phases discovered in a single material

For the first time a team of researchers have discovered two different phases of magnetic skyrmions in a single material. Physicists of the Technical Universities of Munich and Dresden and the University of Cologne can now better study and understand the properties of these magnetic structures, which are important for both basic research and applications.

Whirlpools are an everyday experience in a bath tub: When the water is drained a circular vortex is formed. Typically, such whirls are rather stable. Similar...

Im Focus: Breaking the bond: To take part or not?

Physicists working with Roland Wester at the University of Innsbruck have investigated if and how chemical reactions can be influenced by targeted vibrational excitation of the reactants. They were able to demonstrate that excitation with a laser beam does not affect the efficiency of a chemical exchange reaction and that the excited molecular group acts only as a spectator in the reaction.

A frequently used reaction in organic chemistry is nucleophilic substitution. It plays, for example, an important role in in the synthesis of new chemical...

Im Focus: New 2D Spectroscopy Methods

Optical spectroscopy allows investigating the energy structure and dynamic properties of complex quantum systems. Researchers from the University of Würzburg present two new approaches of coherent two-dimensional spectroscopy.

"Put an excitation into the system and observe how it evolves." According to physicist Professor Tobias Brixner, this is the credo of optical spectroscopy....
