SCADA Lounge at the SPS IPC Drives 2017

Visitors to the SPS IPC drives were able to enjoy discussions with experts in the relaxed atmosphere of the SCADA lounge, being informed of the value added of the SIMATIC SCADA systems WinCC RT Professional V15, WinCC V7.4 and WinCC Open Architecture V3.15 across branches and industries. A matching slogan was quickly created, based on current trends: "Digitalization as Key to Productivity Growth".

Mobility and connectivity are the drivers of our digitalized world. SIMATIC SCADA systems and SIMATIC IPCs are not only used in traditional control rooms, but also offer flexible remote access in combination with state of the art security concepts.
Modern installations are continuously faced with new challenges. The SIMATIC WinCC Open Architecture is adaptable, and can grow without bounds along with the required expansions of the project. This SCADA system is scalable - starting from the field level all the way up to the control center, from machine to corporate HQ. High availability, reliable information, fast response times and high degree of usability are always maintained in every situation.

Our WinCC OA experts presented customized solutions aimed at continuing to increase the productivity of our customers and is best used in the Infrastrucute Automation Category. We had the pleasure of welcoming and presenting our product in more detail to versified visitors.
