Posted on July 27, 2018 in Newsletter The new WinCC OA agentThe Alarm IT Factory is now offering all customers and interested parties a new agent for the Alarm Control Center - the WinCC OA Agent. This increases the extensive portfolio of specially developed ACC agents.For us software engineers and alerting specialists, the perfect integration of the agent into a control system was once again a top priority! The integration was successfully implemented by using the WinCC OA programming interface.Thanks to the integration of our agent, the end user has completely new alarm management options in WinCC OA: The easy configuration of the agent ensures easy selection of message recipients. Filtering based on reporting priority: This enables you to only issue an alarm when certain, definable limit values/priorities are reached. Only certain data points can also be defined as alarm triggers. The ACC filters out all other messages for you. This is how you (or your maintenance staff) always get only the relevant alarm messages. If you want can messages direct be acknowledged by the agent in WinCC OA. After the alarm has been sent from the control system, it only needs to be acknowledged once on the corresponding end device. This eliminates the need for annoying double acknowledgments. Event forwarding: Events such as "message acknowledged" or "message gone" can be forwarded to the ACC to inform the message recipients. redundancy and thus reliability is again the top priority for the ACC! That means: never again miss an important message or not even receive it in the first place. Because the ACC always alerts reliably thanks to (optional) redundant systems and perfect connection to WinCC OA! Message texts You can easily configure it yourself with a wide variety of parameters from WinCC OA. In addition, the WinCC OA Agent of the Alarm Control Center offers a number of other useful functions such as support for multiple languages, the organization and handling of bulk and individual messages.Curious what the ACC can get out of your system?
