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?

    The Alarm Control Center enables you to be ready for the future of visualization today.

    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, the agent for WinCC Unified can be easily configured via the additional texts in the TIA portal thus specifying which information is to be transferred from the visualization system to the agent and thus what is important for the alert via the ACC.

    The configuration of which user text blocks the message text should consist of can be freely selected. Only an additional text is required in the TIA Portal to define the alarm group, i.e. the recipient group. 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 reach 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.

    The WinCC project can now be expanded to include monitoring in order to read this status from a WinCC tag and thus to check the functionality of the agent. This increases the reliability of your alarm system and thus of 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:

    • Monitoring the 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 test by counting up a configurable WinCC tag. If the value of the tag differs from the previously read value, the functionality of WinCC is considered to be ensured.
    • Monitor the agent's message load: If the limit value per signal load and second is exceeded, the system monitoring reacts by informing the configured persons.
