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: UNH scientists help provide first-ever views of elusive energy explosion

Researchers at the University of New Hampshire have captured a difficult-to-view singular event involving "magnetic reconnection"--the process by which sparse particles and energy around Earth collide producing a quick but mighty explosion--in the Earth's magnetotail, the magnetic environment that trails behind the planet.

Magnetic reconnection has remained a bit of a mystery to scientists. They know it exists and have documented the effects that the energy explosions can...

Im Focus: A Chip with Blood Vessels

Biochips have been developed at TU Wien (Vienna), on which tissue can be produced and examined. This allows supplying the tissue with different substances in a very controlled way.

Cultivating human cells in the Petri dish is not a big challenge today. Producing artificial tissue, however, permeated by fine blood vessels, is a much more...

Im Focus: A Leap Into Quantum Technology

Faster and secure data communication: This is the goal of a new joint project involving physicists from the University of Würzburg. The German Federal Ministry of Education and Research funds the project with 14.8 million euro.

In our digital world data security and secure communication are becoming more and more important. Quantum communication is a promising approach to achieve...

Im Focus: Penn engineers develop ultrathin, ultralight 'nanocardboard'

When choosing materials to make something, trade-offs need to be made between a host of properties, such as thickness, stiffness and weight. Depending on the application in question, finding just the right balance is the difference between success and failure

Now, a team of Penn Engineers has demonstrated a new material they call "nanocardboard," an ultrathin equivalent of corrugated paper cardboard. A square...
