Control System & Visualization

SIMATIC WinCC Open Architecture

Scalable, flexible and open SCADA standard software


  • Efficient engineering and flexible system expansion through integrated object orientation


  • From 500 I/Os to 10 million I/Os

  • From a single-user system to 2048 networked systems


  • Comprehensive connection options: OPC UA, OPC, SIMATIC S7 Plus, Ethernet/IP, Modbus, S-Bus, TLS Gateway, BACnet, SNMP Manager & Agent, IEC 61850 / 61400, SINAUT, DNP, IEC 60870-5-101, -104, SSI, SIMATIC Logo 8

  • Platform-neutral for Windows, Linux, iOS and Android


  • Modern and innovative operating concepts with multitouch gestures

  • Monitoring and operation of facility also possible via web or mobile

Maximum availability and safety requirements

  • Hot standby redundancy

  • Disaster Recovery System

  • SIL 3 certification in accordance with IEC 61508

  • Data security through SSL encryption

Benefits in the tunnel

  • Hot standby redundancy can be seamlessly integrated into the redundancy concept of tunnel systems

  • The scalable design enables integration of a large number of data points of frequently distributed tunnel systems - a special benefit for centralized control rooms


SCADA system for global use in all industries

  • Efficient and user-friendly engineering and operation

  • System-wide scalability from the single-user system to distributed, Web-based solutions with access via the Intranet/Internet

  • High availability thanks to redundancy and integrated process diagnostics

  • Open standards for simple integration

Benefits in the tunnel

  • The redundancy function corresponds to all specifications of a redundancy concept for tunnel systems - from the station in the tunnel to the centralized control room

  • The automation components can be optimally integrated into the SCADA system


HMI devices for all requirements, for system-wide configuring, data management and communication

  • High-luminance widescreen displays for optimal readability and expanded display options (up to 40% more visualization area)

  • Efficient energy management thanks to displays that can be dimmed by up to 100% with LED backlighting and use of PROFIenergy for coordinated shutdown during breaks

  • Designed for harsh industrial environments

  • Maximum energy efficiency through integration in the Totally Integrated Automation Portal (TIA Portal)

Benefits in the tunnel

  • SIMATIC HMI devices offer the option of local operation of ventilators or other system components in the tunnel

  • Simple commissioning of individual components directly on-site
