New with SIMATIC WinCC V7.3
More engineering efficiency plus mobile access to WinCC from mobile devices using the new option WinCC/WebUX.
More engineering efficiency and security during runtime
The WinCC Configuration Studio now supports the central configuration of process data, messages, archiving, user archives and user administration as well as free form text in different languages. The functionality also has been expanded to support the communication with the Simatic-S7-1500 PLCs. Now it is possible to directly import the symbolic addresses of variables into the WinCC ConfigurationStudio. Also the integrated system diagnosis is supported by the use of the alarm functions which are implemented in the S7-1500 controller.
To provide even more security for WinCC applications running in large plants the use of encoded SSL communication within the internal communication is supported.
