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: Electrons in the fast lane

Solar cells based on perovskite compounds could soon make electricity generation from sunlight even more efficient and cheaper. The laboratory efficiency of these perovskite solar cells already exceeds that of the well-known silicon solar cells. An international team led by Stefan Weber from the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research (MPI-P) in Mainz has found microscopic structures in perovskite crystals that can guide the charge transport in the solar cell. Clever alignment of these "electron highways" could make perovskite solar cells even more powerful.

Solar cells convert sunlight into electricity. During this process, the electrons of the material inside the cell absorb the energy of the light....

Im Focus: The lightest electromagnetic shielding material in the world

Empa researchers have succeeded in applying aerogels to microelectronics: Aerogels based on cellulose nanofibers can effectively shield electromagnetic radiation over a wide frequency range – and they are unrivalled in terms of weight.

Electric motors and electronic devices generate electromagnetic fields that sometimes have to be shielded in order not to affect neighboring electronic...

Im Focus: AI monitoring of laser welding processes - X-ray vision and eavesdropping ensure quality

With an X-ray experiment at the European Synchrotron ESRF in Grenoble (France), Empa researchers were able to demonstrate how well their real-time acoustic monitoring of laser weld seams works. With almost 90 percent reliability, they detected the formation of unwanted pores that impair the quality of weld seams. Thanks to a special evaluation method based on artificial intelligence (AI), the detection process is completed in just 70 milliseconds.

Laser welding is a process suitable for joining metals and thermoplastics. It has become particularly well established in highly automated production, for...
