In future, make SIMATIC PCS 7 the basis for the automated monitoring, open-loop and closed-loop control of technical building systems such as the heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) technology. Using the new function blocks from the Industry Library, this is even easier to implement as of Version 8.1. Coordinate several ventilators according to availability, or implement step controllers with variable speeds. Measure and analyze the current energy consumption, humidity, or the current power consumption at your devices. In addition, the new version fully supports the use of SIMATIC HMI Comfort Panels. These on-site control units ensure accurate and detailed display of process pictures, guarantee a fast screen refresh rate, and offer various interfaces such as Ethernet and USB. The homogeneous integration into your SIMATIC PCS 7 system landscape is supported by a uniform operating policy and the same look and feel.
