Process visualization for all industries and technologies SIMATIC WinCC® is a scalable process visualization system (SCADA) that is graduated by price and performance, with efficient functions for controlling automated processes.
With SIMATIC WinCC, “perfect process visualization“ stands for complete operating and monitoring functionality under Windows for all industry segments – ranging from simple single-user systems through to distributed multi-user systems with redundant servers and the structure of a cross-site solution including Web clients.
One of the special features of WinCC is its total openness. It can be readily used in combination with standard and user programs, creating HMI solutions which precisely meet practical requirements.
WinCC is a modern system with an attractive user interface for use in the world of the office and manufacture, offering mature and reliable operation and efficient configuration.
It is scalable for simple and complex tasks. Together with the integrated process database, WinCC represents the information exchange for cross-company, vertical integration and thanks to Plant Intelligence provides much more transparency in production.
WinCC is designed on a non technology-and industry-specific basis, it is modular and you can extend it in a flexible way.
WinCC makes possible both demanding single-user applications in mechanical engineering as well as complex multi-user solutions or even distributed systems including several servers and clients - also internet-based - in plant visualization.
WinCC combines both production and process automation - numerous references across any number of applications and branches of industry prove this. WinCC has established as an industry standard in the field of process visualization, no matter if you look at it as an autonomous SCADA-System (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) or the HMI component of SIMATIC PCS 7.
A large number of WinCC Options and Add-ons allows industry-specific solution, e.g. in pharmaceutical industry or water treatment applications.
