SIMATIC WinCC Open Architecture

SIMATIC WinCC Open Architecture - scalable, flexible and open SCADA standard software

  • Efficient engineering and flexible system expansion through object-oriented programming

  • Scalability & flexibility 
    - From 500 I/Os to 10 million I/Os 
    - From a single-user system to 2048 networked systems 
    - Platform-neutral for Windows, Linux, and Solaris

  • Maximum availability and safety requirements 
    - Hot standby redundancy 
    - SIL 3 certification in accordance with IEC 61508 
    - Data security through KERBEROS

  • Openness 
    - Comprehensive connection options: SIMATIC S7, OPC, Modbus TCP/IP, IEC60870-5-101/104, DNP3

Benefits in the tunnel

  • Hot standby redundancy can be seamlessly integrated into the redundancy concept of tunnel systems

  • The scalable design enables integration of a large number of data points of frequently lengthy tunnel systems - a special benefit for centralized control rooms


SCADA system for global use in all industries

  • Efficient and user-friendly engineering and operation

  • System-wide scalability from the single-user system to distributed, Web-based solutions with access via the Intranet/Internet

  • High availability thanks to redundancy and integrated process diagnostics

  • Open standards for simple integration

Benefits in the tunnel

  • The redundancy function corresponds to all specifications of a redundancy concept for tunnel systems - from the station in the tunnel to the centralized control room

  • The automation components can be optimally integrated into the SCADA system


HMI devices for all requirements, for system-wide configuring, data management and communication

  • High-luminance widescreen displays for optimal readability and expanded display options (up to 40% more visualization area)

  • Efficient energy management thanks to displays that can be dimmed by up to 100% with LED backlighting and use of PROFIenergy for coordinated shutdown during breaks

  • Designed for harsh industrial environments

  • Maximum energy efficiency through integration in the Totally Integrated Automation Portal (TIA Portal)

Benefits in the tunnel

  • SIMATIC HMI devices offer the option of local operation of ventilators or other system components in the tunnel

  • Simple commissioning of individual components directly on-site
