SIMATIC PCS 7 offers SFC visualization via the Web. SFC (Sequential Function Chart) is a sequential control system which is used for control flow-oriented control of processes.
The SFC visualization of the Operator System enables the sequential control systems configured with the SFC editor to be displayed and operated in the same way as on the Engineering System. Additional configuration workload is not required for this.
The operator control of SFC block icons, SFC faceplates and SFC controls is possible via Web clients. All information shown in the faceplate is also available on the Web client.
Trends can also be configured on the Web client. In process mode, process values can be displayed in trend form, combined, saved and accessed again with the “Load/Configure Trend Groups” function. Trend groups created online are stored in the Web server and are thus available on the OS client and all other Web clients.
