Agent for SIMATIC WinCC Unified

    New interface: Agent for SIMATIC WinCC Unified for your alarm management

    Would you like to connect the Alarm Control Center to the new visualization system in the TIA Portal WinCC Unified from Siemens?

    With the Alarm Control Center you are already ready for the future of visualization.

    The WinCC Unified Agent enables a seamless transition to the new WinCC paradigm, which is based on modern web technologies such as HTML5, SVG and JavaScript.

    Agent for SIMATIC WinCC Unified

    Configuration of the message via the TIA Portal

    As you already know from the agent for SIMATIC WinCC V7.5, you can also use the additional texts in the TIA Portal to easily configure the agent for WinCC Unified which information is to be transferred from the visualization system to the agent and thus for alarming via that ACC are important.

    The configuration of which user text blocks the message text should consist of can be freely selected. All that is required is an additional text in the TIA Portal in order to specify the alarm group, i.e. the group of recipients. The agent can already react to alarms from WinCC, compile the message text from various user text blocks and send the message to the previously defined alarm group.

    The agent for WinCC Unified uses a freely configurable alarm filter to ensure that only relevant messages arrive at the participants and to reduce the message load. This allows the message types to be differentiated in a particularly fine-grained manner.

    Increased reliability through redundancy and monitoring in the area of the alarm management system

    If a redundant WinCC Unified is used, the Agent for WinCC Unified can also be designed redundantly and connected to the Alarm Control Center.

    In addition, the agent can check whether a connection to the WinCC project is possible, no errors occur during access and at least one connection to an ACC could be established in order to transfer messages.

    Monitoring can now be added to the WinCC project in order to read this status from a WinCC tag and thus check the functionality of the agent. This increases the reliability of your alarm and thus your entire system.

    Increased reliability through the monitoring option

    The option Monitoring monitors all functions of the Alarm Control Center and of course also provides functionality for this agent:

    • Monitor connection to WinCC Unified: A cyclical check monitors whether the connection to WinCC Unified still exists.
    • Monitoring the functionality of WinCC Unified: The WinCC Unified Agent carries out the check by incrementing a configurable WinCC variable. If the value of the tag differs from the previously read value, the functionality of WinCC is considered to be guaranteed.
    • Monitor agent reporting load: If the limit per message load and second is exceeded, the system monitoring reacts by informing the configured people.
