WinCC Basic Function


WinCC Basic Functions
This slide illustrates the functionality of a modern process visualization with

full graphics display.
- alarm display, alarm archiving and alarm logging.
- measured value acquisition (archiving functions, data compression, minimum
and maximum values etc.).
- Report Designer for documenting machine sequences and process sequences
with individual reporting.
- process communication to various PLC systems.
- standard interfaces for database and data processing, for example, in
Microsoft programs.
- programming interfaces (API) are available in all WinCC application modules
and allow access to data and functions.
Complex visualization tasks can be solved with the ANSI-C programming
language and/or with Visual Basic Script.

Options
For useful extensions of the WinCC Basic Software, for example, Server
expansion, redundancy, etc.

WinCC Basic Process Control 1/2


General Information The "Basic Process Control" package comprises, among others, the components:

OS-Projecteditor
This Wizard is used to configure and initialize the monitor settings and screen
settings for the current WinCC project.
You should do this initialization immediately after you create a project, since
other applications (Runtime, Group Display etc.) also access this data.
The Wizard defines the newly created picture (@Screen.PDL) as the Start
screen.
As well, there is a simple way of configuring the message system with fixed
default settings (configuration of the message window, messages, message
classes and creation of the process control messages).

Picture Tree Manager
The Picture Tree Manager is used to manage a hierarchy of application pictures,
parts of application pictures, function names and pictures from the Graphics
Designer.

Group Display
The Group Display is an additional element of the Graphics Editor (Smart
Objects) that is used to collect messages and events in individual pictures and /
or in the picture hierarchy and to display them in the application (overview)
picture.
With the help of the Group Display, a malfunction or an alarm can be displayed in
the overview picture. This allows the operator to switch directly to the
malfunctioned system section by simply selecting it.

Lifebeat Monitoring
The Lifebeat Monitoring takes over the permanent monitoring of the individual
systems (OS and AS) and generates the process control messages.
After startup, the monitoring begins automatically for the configured (selected)
components and is executed cyclically. A message is generated when one of the
participants repeatedly fails to answer (after three successive cycles).


WinCC Basic Process Control 2/2

WinCC Basic Process Control Functions
- Basic data with screen subdivisions of overview, desktop and button areas
- Process mimic hierarchy with graphic configuration of the picture hierarchy.
(Picture Tree Manager).
- Scrolling through the picture hierarchy in process control.
- Storing and recalling the screen layout.
- Group displays for user guidance through the graphics hierarchy
- Selecting process mimics using names (in process control).
- Lifeboat monitoring with system configuration diagram.
- Message Configuration provides you with a simple way of configuring the
message system with fixed default settings (configuration of the message
window, messages, message classes and creation of the process control
messages).
- Using external signalling device.
- Enhanced graphics objects: 3D Bar graphs,Group Display.
- OS-Projecteditor for adjusting screen resolution and multi-channnel
operation with Multi-VGA cards and up to four monitors.

Time Synchronization
With the time synchronization function, it is possible to synchronize all the clocks  in the system using special clock masters such as Siclock or DCF77.

Horn Editor
For use of a signal module or sound card. The signal module has relay outputs for
a horn (acoustic) or signal lamp (optic).

Note
You will require the Multi-VGA card from IGS for multi-channel operation. For
activating (using) the signalling device, you will also require the signal module.

Chipcard Reader
With the chipcard reader option, a WinCC User can log on with a chipcard using a
reading device that is connected to a serial interface.
