WinCC OA Mobile UI

Mobile User Interface for iOS and Android


Increasing globalization and mobility require systems for worldwide application which enable mobile access to plant information at any time, in any location.
The mobile user interface from SIMATIC WinCC Open Architecture is a mobile client for iOS and Android devices which offers the same possibilities and functionality as a standard client. With the definition of optional device classes stating the width, height and orientation of the different displays, optimum depiction on mobile devices is guaranteed.

Mobile devices are managed and administered at the WinCC OA Server. Project data is automatically distributed through the WinCC OA server, enabling integrated engineering completely without the need for programming. To guarantee secure communication, the mobile UI can also communicate using SSL encryption. Installation is simplicity itself: The app is simply downloaded from the relevant store and is immediately ready for use.

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.
