Using WinCC/WebUX it is easy to achieve device-independent and secure integration of smartphones, tablets, PCs and other mobile devices to operate and monitor SIMATIC PCS 7. WinCC/WebUX works as browser application, which means that no software must be installed on clients. Mobile devices must merely support HTML 5-capable browsers. All communication takes place securely via HTTPS and SSL certificates. Via the user administration user-specific accesses can be set up either purely for monitoring or also for operating, without any additional configuration work.
WinCC/WebUX turns mobile devices into operating and monitoring stations: It is just as easy to acknowledge alarms and to display trend views as it is to show important information (KPIs) as figures or trends. Now users can implement more flexible operating concepts and monitor processes via Internet or Intranet while on the road, or even intervene and take corrective action.
