Exporting Process data


PM-OPEN EXPORT offers a flexible and economical solution for exporting process data and archive data from SIMATIC WinCC into freely designed, independent  text files (ASCII, CSV format as well as HTML and XML format, etc.).


PM-OPEN EXPORT can export to any local or shared network storage media.  Text files in HTML format allow an information system to be built up on the basis of Internet/Intranet.

PM-OPEN EXPORT runs in the background after configuration, i.e. the process data and archive data is transferred automatically to text files without the user’s intervention. Data export can be initiated cyclically, time-controlled or event-controlled. Additionally the data export can be initiated manually.

A decisive advantage is the flexible and individual design of the target file. This can include, for example, static text and timestamps in addition to the exported data

PM-OPEN EXPORT is suitable for use in redundant WinCC configurations.

Security information

To ensure the secure operation of a plant or machine it is also necessary to take suitable preventive action (e.g. cell protection concept) and to integrate the automation and drive components into a state-of-the-art holistic industrial security concept for the entire plant or machine. Any third-party products that may be in use must also be taken into account.
