Options for SIMATIC WinCC (TIA Portal)

Tailor-made runtime functionality for WinCC RT Advanced and WinCC RT Professional

The PC-based HMI solutions with WinCC RT Advanced and WinCC RT Professional include all essential functions for operator control and monitoring of machinery or plants. For an expanded task range, the functionality can be supplemented by means of additional options.

Options for scalable configurations

Scalability is already included in the basic system, and WinCC also has options that support the easy expansion and modernization of systems. For example, the options for scalable configurations facilitate the development of a client/server system or an increase in system availability by setting up a redundant architecture.
