SIMATIC WinCC flexible

Configuring and Runtime visualization software for older panel series and PC- systems

Time for a change

For more than a decade SIMATIC WinCC flexible the proven HMI software for flexible implementation in machine- and process-oriented applications, across all industries stood for configuration efficiency.

When Siemens decided to open a new chapter in integrated Engineering, we did it by developing a new HMI Software based on a new Software architecture:  SIMATIC WinCC (TIA Portal).

Notice:
The Panel Portfolio of the latest generation can only be configured with the corresponding version of WinCC (TIA Portal). It's not only because of advanced hardware performance but also because of enhanced functionality in combination with the WinCC (TIA Portal) Engineering and Runtime Software that Siemens strongly recommends the use of WinCC (TIA Portal) instead of WinCC flexible:


WinCC flexible ES - Configurable devices and alternatives with WinCC (TIA Portal)

The WinCC flexible Engineering Software was used to configure SIMATIC operator devices of the x70 and x77 series from small Micro Panels to powerful Multi Panels as well as PC-based HMI with WinCC flexible Runtime SW.

Siemens supports the user in modernizing and migrating his automation solutions in general and the visualization solutions in special as well. See the information and services offer to the right.
