On SIMATIC WinCC Comfort Panels or systems with WinCC RT Advanced (TIA Portal) process data (tags and messages) and operator messages are archived locally as CSV formatted logs. By using PM-OPEN IMPORT these archived data can be transferred into a central WinCC* system, where the data is safely stored in chronological order for a long time period. The original timestamps are preserved by the import. As soon as the data is imported, the standard controls can be used to display and evaluate the data.*(WinCC, PCS7, WinCC RT Professional (TIA-Portal))
Together with PM-OPEN IMPORT, SIMATIC meets the requirements for a secure, central and long-term archiving of relevant data throughout the entire automation landscape (from panels close to the machine up to a central SCADA system) as defined in the FDA regulations or in EU regulation 178/2002.
PM-OPEN IMPORT allows the import of the following data types into the WinCC System:
Import of WinCC Comfort / WinCC RT Advanced Data LogsData from CSV-formatted Data Logs is imported into the WinCC Tag Logging or into the WinCC RT Professional Archives and can be displayed as trends or tables by using the standard controls.
Import of WinCC Comfort / WinCC RT Advanced Alarm LogsData from CSV-formatted Alarm Logs is imported into the WinCC Alarm Logging or into the WinCC RT Professional Messages and can be displayed as tables by using the standard control.
Import of WinCC Comfort / WinCC RT Advanced Audit TrailsData form CSV-formatted Audit Logs is imported into the WinCC Alarm Logging or into the WinCC RT Professional Messages and can be displayed like WinCC operator messages in the standard control. The operator messages include the blocks “Username”, “Comment” and if applicable “Tag name”, „Old Value“ and „New value“.

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. Please find further information at: http://www.siemens.com/industrialsecurity
