WinCC OA Scheduler


WinCC OA Scheduler

The main task of the scheduler is to allow you to create, parameterize and administrate a number of schedules of either time or event triggered actions.
By using the scheduler a set of specific actions can be triggered by defining simple or complex conditions. You can define actions like:

  • Setting the value of a data point element to a predefined value

  • Showing a pop-up message

  • Initiating an alert in the alert screen

  • Setting values via recipes or

  • Executing a user-defined script

 A scheduler condition can consist of:

  • Only one date

  • a set of dates

  • periodic events

  • a date combined with a value condition

  • only a single value condition

  • etc.

The scheduler can be utilized in wide range of industries (e.g. building automation, facility management, wastewater treatment plants, ...) and can be deployed to perform the following tasks:

  • Heat- and climate control

  • Light control

  • Alarming issues

  • Switching between different operational modes

  • Recipes (time controlled activation of recipes)

  • Changing responsibilities (on-call service teams)

  • Time-dependent maintenance

  • Reminder function for operational staff

  • Cyclic diagnostics/reports

  • Automatic checking sequences (weekly siren test etc.)

  • Time-dependent and/or value dependent change of set points

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.
