Siemens Simatic WinCC V7.2 Plant Wide Information System
Accommodates up to 18 Redundant Servers
Offers Historian and Information Server Options
Scalable Without Interrupting Production
Siemens Industry Sector introduces Version 7.2 of its popular Simatic® WinCC SCADA software. The new version expands the software into a plant-wide information system accommodating a system framework of up to 18 redundant servers.
WinCC V7.2 also offers new Simatic Process Historian and Simatic Information Server options, giving users scalable, long-term process data archiving with powerful Web-based analysis and reporting tools.
The Simatic Process Historian central archiving system acquires and archives data in real time from any number of lower-level WinCC systems for plant-wide analyses and reports. The scalable software can accommodate data volume without interrupting production. The archiving function automatically creates weekly, monthly and annual archives.
The Simatic Information Server creates reports and analyzes data with Web-based interfaces. Based on Microsoft Reporting Services, users without programming experience can access the data archived in WinCC, PCS 7 OS or Simatic Process Historian. The server generates automatic cyclical and event-based interactive reports with Internet Explorer, Excel or Word, as well as for Adobe reader (PDF).
WinCC 7.2 now also supports the Unicode data format and allows users to select the preferred language for local display or for operator input over the Internet, regardless of the language setting of the operating system.
Two-finger, multi-touch gesture controls for zooming, sweeping, and rotating, simplifies complex production plant control. Set point inputs are offered and two-handed operations are required to protect users from unintentional switching operations.
