SICAM SCC – process visualization for electric power distribution and transmission systems

SICAM SCC – HMI for SICAM and IEC 61850 The process visualization and control system is a central ele- ment of the distribution and transmission of electric energy. The SICAM SCC HMI system from the SICAM product line is the optimum solution for your control and monitoring requirements. The system is independent of the Siemens substation technology installed. SICAM SCC is compatible with the SICAM PAS Power Automation System and the prod- ucts AK, TM, EMIC and MIC from the SICAM line. And in case you are not using a substation controller in your station:

SICAM SCC communicates directly with bay units and protec- tion devices that support the IEC 61850 communication standard. As a result, it can be used as an overall HMI system for devices.

SICAM SCC – based on SIMATIC WinCC Common HMI for SICAM and SIMATIC SICAM SCC is based on the SIMATIC WinCC system, one of the world-leading process visualization systems, adding the func- tions required for use as substation operating system of the electric process in high-voltage and medium-voltage systems. The compatibility with SIMATIC WinCC allows SICAM SCC to be used as an add-on together with SIMATIC WinCC on one com- puter. This enables an integrated system solution for visualiz- ing and controlling the industrial manufacturing processes, using SIMATIC automation devices (e.g. S7 and PCS7), and the electric energy process (e.g. with SICAM PAS).

SICAM SCC – functions for use with SICAM and IEC 61850 SICAM SCC is tailored to be used in energy applications supporting operators with the task of optimizing system management. It provides a fast and clear overview of the system operating states. The specific properties of the HV and MV switchgear in control and monitoring direction (double commands and double-point indications) are opti- mally implemented in the indication lists and the graphic process visualization.

SICAM SCC – logging that adds value The original time stamps are logged in the indication lists in ms resolution as generated in the devices. Each indication is displayed with a number of additional information items. They provide information about the up-to-dateness of the information in the event of a device or communication fail- ure (up-to-date/not up-to-date) or an active bay blocking or telecontrol blocking. In addition, they specify the cause of the status change (spontaneous, command) and, in case of a command, they provide information about the source of the operation (local, remote). In addition to process indications, command indications are logged, too. Each command opera- tion is thus documented completely and in detail, from the command initiation by the operator to command output and feedback from the process after change of status of the con- trolled switchgear.

SICAM SCC – from process visualization to topological coloring IndustrialX controls are used to control and monitor the switchgear in the fully graphical process images (single-line diagrams). These switchgear objects support 4 different dis- play modes (IEC, DIN, SINAUT LSA, SICAM) for circuit break- ers and disconnectors. In addition, project-specific bitmaps can be defined to represent the switchgear devices and link them with the objects. Setpoint flashing and spontaneous flashing plus the display of various device and communica- tion states (e.g. up-to-date/not up-to-date, bay blocking and telecontrol blocking) are supported with the aim to provide reliable visualization. Measured values and switchgear states, which are no longer updated due to a device or communica- tion failure or an active bay blocking, can be updated manu- ally from the SICAM SCC operator station. The switchgear devices can be controlled either directly or by using “Select before operate”. Topological coloring is available for visual-

izing the process with single-line diagrams.

SICAM SCC – shared substation automation functions with SICAM PAS Additional functions are supported when using the system in conjunction with SICAM PAS: If, for example, maintenance or tests have to be carried out for the process domain of a bay controller, it may not be desirable that status changes are actually processed by the SICAM PAS substation automation processing functions nor logged in the HMI. This can be implemented easily by activating the bay blocking function. The telecontrol blocking function can be used if you want

status changes to be processed in the station but not trans- mitted to the higher-level control center.

Substations are usually controlled from the higher-level control centers, whereas switching commands are to be rejected by the station‘s internal HMI; the switching authority is assigned to the higher-level control center. If control from the HMI is required for operational management reasons, the switching authority can be obtained. If the substation is connected to several control centers, the switching authority can also be assigned to specific channels. Additionally, different switching authorities can be used, e.g. for the different voltage levels.

SICAM SCC – reduced engineering effort Exchanging data with the connected substations frequently involves several thousand indications, measured values and commands. SICAM SCC provides wizards which considerably facilitate the configuration of such information. The configu- ration tools (SICAM PAS UI Configuration, SICAM TOOLBOX II) provide the required description of the process data in elec- tronic form and can be imported conveniently using the SCC wizards. Redundant data entries are thus avoided. SCD files can be imported for IEC 61850 devices which are connected directly.

SIMATIC WinCC – basics

SIMATIC WinCC – the platform on which SICAM SCC operates

Important characteristics – overview The WinCC basic software is the core of an integrated system comprising WinCC, WinCC options and WinCC Add-ons, all designed to build up a solution tailored to your specific requirements. The basic software itself represents a power- ful, universally applicable process visualization system that offers all features of a sophisticated HMI software.

Runtime software All HMI functions onboard, this characterizes the runtime component of the WinCC basic software: Starting with a user administration that meets all requirements of Good Manufac- turing Practice (GMP), ranging to a user interface with lots of configurable controls and functions up to a performant mes- sage and archiving system based on the integrated MS SQL Server. Reporting and logging system as well as integrated control technology functions complete the list.

Engineering software The engineering component WinCC CS offers a set of editors that leave nothing to be desired when talking about effi- ciency or user friendliness. Libraries and wizards make the generation of a project fast and easy and reduce error-prone- ness considerably. As a software for most complex HMI tasks, WinCC is able to handle comprehensive projects and mass data.

Scalability The basic system is scalable in all respects by employing WinCC options. The basic software can already be adapted to increasing quantity structures by finely graded licenses. Yet, a chosen license can easily be upgraded in regard to the number of process tags. By employing WinCC/Server, you can run WinCC as a client/server application. WinCC/Redundancy is used to build up a highly available SCADA system.

WinCC/CAS offers the possibility for setting up a scalable, central process data archiving. The WinCC/Web Navigator allows you to visualize and operate your plant via the Inter- net with nearly the same functionality as a WinCC client but with unbeatable flexibility.

Virtualization In addition to WinCC Clients, WinCC Servers can now also be used with WinCC V7.0 SP3 under VMware ESXi, and engi- neering stations under VMware Workstation or VMware Player. This means that complex client/server structures as well as single-user systems can be configured with virtual environments.

Openness SIMATIC WinCC consistently builds on the highest possible openness and ability to integrate as it is designed for using standard technologies and software tools: This comprises basic technologies, operating systems, the ways of commu- nication or the ability to integrate scripts, all on a non-propri- etary basis.

SIMATIC WinCC – detailed description of the major functions

Basic functionality

The runtime application of the WinCC basic software Overview

• Integrated user management

• User interface

• Message system

• Archiving system

• Reporting and logging system

• Control technology functions (Basic Process Control)

Integrated user management Using WinCC User Administrator, you assign and control user´s access rights for configuration and runtime. As the administrator, you can set up at any time – including at run-

3 time – up to 128 user groups each containing up to 128 indi- vidual users and assign them appropriate access rights to WinCC functions. A total of 999 access rights is possible. Starting with WinCC V7, SIMATIC Logon is part of the WinCC basic system. The user administration with SIMATIC Logon integrates into the security system and user management of Windows and thus meets enhanced security requirements according to FDA regulations. SIMATIC Logon comprises a number of security mechanisms and provides a plant-wide user management.

mechanisms and provides a plant-wide user management. Figure 3.1/3 SIMATIC Logon Service at WinCC basic system

Figure 3.1/3 SIMATIC Logon Service at WinCC basic system

User interface Using WinCC standards, you can create customized config- ured user interfaces for any application. You can choose from a comprehensive range of configurable standard objects. The online language switching option enables you to switch online between languages during runtime for projects created for several target languages. Windows elements like menus and toolbars can be integrated into the WinCC user interface. WinCC makes it possible to represent screen sizes of up to 10,000 x 10,000 pixels using intelligent zoom functions. The view of a process screen in runtime can be enlarged or reduced using the mouse wheel. When the pic- ture has been assigned a zoom factor, the mouse can be used for panning. After clicking on the mouse wheel, a navi- gation compass appears. Move the mouse pointer to scroll the picture in the corresponding direction. Using decluttering,

function layers and the objects contained in them can be displayed and hidden, depending on the zoom factor.

Message system SIMATIC WinCC doesn‘t just acquire process messages and local events, it also stores them in circular archives and then makes them available as desired on a filtered or sorted basis. Messages can be derived from individual bits, can be a result of an alarm message frame directly from the automation sys- tem or of analog alarms in the case of out-of-limit condi- tions. Individual acknowledgement procedures, a freely definable message structure and configurable archiving as well as logging of messages are additional features. In the WinCC Alarm Control, the depiction of the messages can be individually customized. Extensive selection options, e.g. via a user-specific filter matrix, ensure an optimal overview. The depiction of messages already swapped out is possible as well. At the push of a button, the messages depicted can be exported or printed out as a report. System-specific functions can be implemented via freely configurable toolbar functions.

Starting with WinCC V7.0 SP1, a search function is offered in the Alarm Editor. The filter options in the alarm system have been supplemented by “equals” for process value blocks and “contains” for text values.

With the function “Alarm Hiding”, the operator suppresses unimportant system status messages on the screen display, though they continue to be archived in the background. The “Hiding List” can of course be viewed at any time and individ- ual or all alarms be displayed again by selection.

SICAM SCC

SIMATIC WinCC – basics

Archiving system Historical values or value progressions are stored in process value archives. Besides process values, WinCC also archives messages and application data. The archiving occurs in ring archives in the integrated, high-performance MS SQL Server database at a rate of up to 10,000 measured values and 100 messages per second. The storage capacity requirements are very low due to powerful, lossless compression functions. The WinCC basic system already allows up to 512 archive tags to be configured. In the final capacity stage, PowerPacks enable the expansion to up 120,000 tags. A central, option- ally redundant, long-term archiving can be implemented via a central archive server with the option WinCC/Central Archive Server.

In the TrendControl, current values (online trend curves), his- torical process values, and desired value trend curves can be depicted in the same trend display. The depiction of mes- sages already swapped out is possible as well. In doing so, a customized scaling of the time axis and the value range can be performed (e.g. scaling in percent). The time and value axes of the individual trend curves can be moved online by mouse movement. This function, for example, can be used for batch comparisons.

function, for example, can be used for batch comparisons. Figure 3.1/6 Online TrendControl At the push

Figure 3.1/6 Online TrendControl

At the push of a button, integrated statistics functions enable the determination of min., max., average, and stan- dard deviation as well as the integral calculation. A logarith- mic depiction of trend curve progressions is also possible. At the push of a button, the process values selected (high- lighted) in the TrendControl can be exported to a CSV file or printed out as a report. In addition, system-specific functions can be implemented via freely configurable toolbar functions.

Reporting and logging system WinCC has an integrated logging system that you can use to print data from WinCC or from other applications. This sys- tem prints data that was acquired at runtime in configurable layouts by means of different types of logs: from message sequence logs through system message logs and operator logs up to user reports. Before printing reports, you can save them as files and preview them on the monitor. WinCC logs can also contain data from the database and external data in CSV format as a table or a curve in a log.

Overview of the WinCC Editors

In the life cycle of an automation solution, engineering costs

make up as much as 50 % of the total costs. If you want to sig- nificantly lower costs, you will need simple and efficient tools for configuring – and intuitive operator prompting. SIMATIC WinCC provides both. WinCC makes available a range of edi- tors and interfaces that you can use to individually configure the functionality of your respective application:

WinCC Explorer The WinCC Explorer is the central coordinating point in WinCC for project management and provides access to all the com- ponents of WinCC. It gives you a detailed overview of the loaded project and shows all the files that are associated with the project.

WinCC Graphics Designer Graphics system for designing a user interface. Using the wide range of graphics objects, which are offered on several tool palettes, you can easily and quickly create complex pro- cess screens. Parameterizing and linking a graphic object to an internal PLC tag for animation purposes is as easy as can be. As soon as a new object has been placed in the picture, an easy-to-edit dialog box appears.

placed in the picture, an easy-to-edit dialog box appears. Figure 3.1/7 WinCC Graphics Designer • Editor

Figure 3.1/7 WinCC Graphics Designer

Editor for menus and toolbars Application-specific menus and toolbars can be integrated into the user interface of the runtime application. These new user interface elements can be set up, “fixed” or “mov- able” – as usual in Windows.

Centrally changeable objects (faceplates) The configuration can also be performed using modular construction: Any graphical object can be grouped with others to form a new, user-specific faceplate, where only the interface parameters relevant for the process connec- tion “come to the surface”. These faceplates are centrally created and managed. Changes are automatically incorpo- rated into all places of use.

WinCC Alarm Logging Editor for configuring the alarm and message system for recording and logging events with display and operating facilities; freely selectable message categories, message display and reporting.

WinCC Tag Logging Editor for configuring the Archive System which allows the archiving of process values for acquisition, logging and compressing measurement values, e.g. for displaying trends and tables and further processing.

WinCC Report Designer To document configuration and runtime data, you can gen- erate logs and reports in WinCC. The supplied layouts cover the majority of possible applications for documenting your configuration information, and for logging the runtime data. Using the WinCC Report Designer, you can change the default layouts or create new layouts that meet your own requirements.

SIMATIC NCM PC Using SIMATIC NCM PC, you can load WinCC projects to the corresponding target systems. This applies to both single- user and multi-user configurations. If required, you can also load WinCC single-user projects on several computers with- out needing to duplicate the WinCC project. Any changes to the WinCC project that may become necessary can be car- ried out later centrally at one location with the system dis- tributing the changes to all the affected stations. For this, you use OS references in SIMATIC NCM PC that only contain a reference to the corresponding projects.

SIMATIC WinCC – configuration

Wizards and libraries Delegating routine tasks helps cutting engineering time:

SIMATIC WinCC supports developers by providing wizards (assistants) for easy configuration tasks. The message wiz- ard, for example, offers default settings that developers can confirm or modify. Preview windows show the effect of the chosen parameters. If the developer confirms the settings, he can implement cost-effective and practical solutions in a very short time.

Once graphic objects have been created, the library makes it possible to reuse them in other pictures and/or projects. Developers can create company-, technology- or industry- specific standards, making it quick and easy to create proj- ects. The objects for those projects are finished and sorted by topic in the library and can be brought into the pictures via drag & drop. Inserting objects in the library is just as easy. In order to be able to make full use of multiple languages in WinCC´s runtime mode, objects like these should be config- ured in several languages.

Engineering of large projects To keep an overview of the host of tags, images and functions that are used in a project, WinCC offers a cross-reference list that can be generated individually on the basis of filter set- tings. You create the cross-reference list using the Cross Refer- ence Editor.

cross-reference list using the Cross Refer- ence Editor. Figure 3.1/9 Cross Reference Editor For convenient and

Figure 3.1/9 Cross Reference Editor

For convenient and quick configuration of mass data, WinCC provides a configuration tool based on Microsoft Excel. You can read in existing projects and create new ones. In addition to process connections and process tags, you can edit mea- sured value archives, alarm messages and the Text Library.

The table format allows convenient editing, which also includes auto fill-in. Experienced users can expand their options by using macros based on VBA (Visual Basic for Applications).

Configuring multilingual applications The configuration user interface of the WinCC system soft- ware can be switched between English, German, French, Spanish, and Italian. WinCC is also offered in an ASIAN ver- sion for China, Taiwan, Korea, and Japan. The configuration user interface of the Asian version of WinCC is switchable between the respective Asian national language installed and English. With that, configuration personnel from other countries can make any necessary changes to the project in the English configuration environment, e.g. in case of maintenance.

Figure 3.1/10 Multilingual applications

The texts for the runtime application can be edited in all pri- mary languages of Windows. Besides static texts, this also includes the tooltips. At the push of a button, a switch between these languages can be executed while in runtime. For the export and import of all texts in the CSV format, the WinCC Text Distributor is provided, through which the transla- tion can be easily carried out via standard tools. To facilitate the translation of message texts, a text block library (Text Library) exists, which in tabular form lists the terms used in the individual languages. Convenient filter mechanisms make working with large quantity structures easier.

Scalability with SIMATIC WinCC

Scalability with WinCC

From single-user system to web-based solution Overview

• Client/server solutions

• Central archive server solutions

• Redundant server solutions

• Web-client solutions

• Thin-client solutions

To be able to meet growing requirements, the visualization must be expandable at any time without causing technology incompatibilities or requiring completely new configurations. Investment protection is a top priority.

Central archive server solutions Central data management, reliable, high-performance archiving and central backup mechanisms form the basis of a archive server solution. Integration in the SCADA world, data interfaces for access to archived data and analysis functions are the component parts.

The option Central Archive Server (CAS) was designed for this purpose and is used to export the archived data of all servers in the system to a computer and manage it. Integra- tion of CAS in the WinCC world means that the data remains available for the WinCC clients as well as for the WinCC stan- dard interfaces.

Figure 3.1/12 Client/server solutions

Figure 3.1/13 Central archive server solution

On-site PC-based visualization at machines or smaller plants is a typical WinCC flexible task. To cope with growing require- ments, regarding functionality and quantities, you can employ a WinCC single-user system with a corresponding number of system variables (Power Tags). To face even more ambitious tasks, you can build up a powerful client/server system by employing the WinCC/Server option. The server option allows you to set up coordinated operator stations (multi-user system) from single-user systems at any time.

In this way, you can deploy a total of up to 12 WinCC servers and 32 WinCC clients per server in a contiguous plant config- uration. This allows the overall application to be distributed among a number of servers, according to the physical plant structure (e.g. body-in-white-shop, paint-shop etc.) or on a functional basis (e.g. alarm server, archive server etc.).

SICAM SCC

Scalability with SIMATIC WinCC

Redundant server solutions The WinCC/Redundancy option gives the user the opportu- nity to operate two linked WinCC server PCs in parallel in order to monitor each other. On the failure of one of the servers, the second server assumes control of the entire sys- tem. When the failed server resumes operation, the contents of all message and process value archives are copied back to the restored server. The automatic switch to the redundancy partner within the framework of WinCC/Redundancy is not only carried out in the case of a failed server, but also in the case of a faulty process communication.

Web-client solutions The WinCC/Web Navigator makes monitoring and even oper- ating a plant possible from the Internet or intranet. The Web Navigator consists of a combination of Web Navigator Server and Web Navigator Client. The web server can be a WinCC single-user station or any station in a WinCC Client/Server configuration.

A Web Navigator Server – depending on its license – can sup- ply up to 50 clients with process screens, messages and cur- rent process data.

 

 

 
 

 

 

 

 

 

           
                 
 
                 
   
 
 
 
 
 
       
 

   

 
 
 
 
 

 
 
 
                               

 
 
   
                               
                               
       

Figure 3.1/14 Web client solution

Thin-client solutions With Simatic WinCC, you can implement client/server config- urations, in which simply equipped Window PCs, rugged Windows CE-based terminals (e.g. SIMATIC Thin Clients) or mobile handheld devices can be employed as operating sta- tions. WinCC uses an innovative thin-client strategy that combines the advantages of the Web and terminal server technologies.

Solutions of this type make minimal requirements of the hardware, since the application itself runs on the terminal server. Up to 25 thin clients can be connected to one termi- nal server. In this case, the clients only have the purpose of entering data and of sending this data to a terminal server. The terminal server carries out the actual processing (for instance updating process screens) and returns the resulting screen output to the client, which then displays it on its monitor.

Virtualization with SIMATIC WinCC

Virtualization with SIMATIC WinCC

Cost-effective, resilient and flexible IT infrastructures Overview • Description • Benefits • Hardware and software requirements • Options released for virtual environments

Description To reduce the administration and maintenance effort, the automation world is turning increasingly to virtualization and the opportunity it provides to decouple applications from hardware. This enables centralized management and further simplifies backing up and restoring the system environment. Client environments can be installed once and distributed among one or two virtualization servers using virtual ses- sions (instances).
3

It is also much easier to implement IT security solutions on central virtualization servers than on numerous client sta- tions. Last but not least, virtualization eliminates the restric- tion of target devices to a particular hardware, thus allowing even more complex applications to run on simple, low-cost and robust thin clients. In addition to WinCC Clients, WinCC Servers can now also be used with WinCC V7.0 SP3 under VMware ESXi, and engineering stations under VMware Workstation or VMware Player.

This means that complex client/server structures as well as single-user systems can be configured with virtual environ- ments. In addition, the engineering can be implemented with a client-based VMware, which will significantly reduce the effort for installation and maintenance.

Figure 3.1/15 Virtualization

In this way, all WinCC guest systems can be monitored via the central administration of the VMware Server.

Benefits Virtual technologies permit cost-effective, resilient and flexi- ble IT infrastructures. Above that, virtualization provides the following benefits:

Reduction of the hardware costs Reduced HW costs by consolidation of several physical com- puters. More cost-effective hardware can be used on the client side. Additional application areas: Thin-client solu- tions (PC, Panel, mobile PDA). Reduced effort for maintenance Shorter times for updates and backups, because these can be executed centrally. Reduced maintenance costs due to central administration. Server configuration by means of remote management tools. Increased security Increased security due to remote access and centralized rights management. Reduced risk of attacks with thin clients, central protection on the virtual server. Increased availability. Hardware replacement on the virtual server is possible during operation. Increased flexibility Additional clients can easily be connected by starting another VMware Session.

Openness with SIMATIC WinCC

Openness with SIMATIC WinCC

Using standards for easy integration Overview • Operating systems and databases • Integration platform • Scripting • Communication

Right from the start, SIMATIC WinCC has stood for the highest levels of openness and integration, since it has con- sistently backed standard technologies and software tools.

Operating systems and databases MS Windows Beginning with the first version, WinCC has always used operating systems of the market leader. Whether you use Windows Server 2003/2008, Windows XP Professional or

3 Windows 7, in the final analysis, this means a very safe investment for you, since you can easily keep up with innovations in operating systems.

MS SQL Server Microsoft SQL Server 2005 SP2 is integrated in the basic WinCC system including its real-time response, performance and 512 archive tags. Powerpacks for up to 120,000 archive variables give you higher performance profiles and thus sup- port you in enhancing the system to a central archive server, which can also archive other data from the production pro- cess for long periods of time and make available analysis tools.

Using a variety of open interfaces, you can further process archive data using any external tools you like at any time you choose.

Integration platform

tools you like at any time you choose. Integration platform Figure 3.1/17 ActiveX elements On the

Figure 3.1/17 ActiveX elements

On the one hand, integrating controls makes configuration easier due to the use of ready-made elements that you just need to integrate; on the other hand, it allows you to protect industry and technology expertise in encapsulated elements and to use them as often as you like with different parame- ters. With Version7, WinCC not only supports the integration of ActiveX controls but also customer-specific XAML and .NET controls, as its WinCC Media Control acts as a .NET container. The WinCC/IndustrialX package is available as an option for WinCC. It contains a large number of additional ActiveX ele- ments and a development toolset including Visual Basic tem- plates to allow you to easily create ActiveX controls.

SICAM SCC

Openness with SIMATIC WinCC

Scripting Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) For individual customizing and extensions to the configura- tion tool, VBA has been integrated into the WinCC Graphics Designer – which is the user-friendly standard environment for application-specific extensions. This means that the Visual Basic knowledge that is available to many engineers and users is transportable to WinCC. And apart from this, standards for repeat engineering tasks save time and money!

This means that you can define any menu entries or fast con- figuration dialogs you like for your own user-specific objects.

VBScript or ANSI-C Normally, pictures, logic operations and animation are con- figured via simple dialogs. Scripts can also be programmed using VBScript or in ANSI-C when necessary, for example to convert values, to initiate a report or to generate operator messages.

VBScript has its own user-friendly editor with debugging sup- port. The scripts themselves have access to the properties and methods of all WinCC graphics objects, to controls and to the object model of WinCC as well as applications of other manufacturers.

of WinCC as well as applications of other manufacturers. Figure 3.1/18 VBScript Editor in WinCC Open

Open programming interfaces – C-API The WinCC function modules are open due to API interfaces that allow access to the data and functions of the configura- tion and runtime system. This means that you can use WinCC configuration and runtime functions in your scripts or even develop stand-alone applications with direct access to WinCC. And by using the WinCC/Open Development Kit (ODK), accessing the programming interfaces is really easy.

Communication OPC – OLE for Process Control OPC is a uniform procedure that allows Windows applications to access process data. This makes it easy to combine devices and applications produced by other manufacturers.

As an OPC DA client, WinCC can log on locally or across the net- work in the case of lower-level controllers for current process data and has this data sent to it from the associated OPC DA server on a cyclical basis. In the other direction, the WinCC OPC DA server can make available current process data to other OPC-compatible applications like Microsoft Excel for further processing.

With OPC XML DA, this is even possible across platforms for dif- ferent operating systems via the Web between WinCC and office applications, ERP/PPS systems (e.g. SAP/R3) or business- to-business portals. You can implement access to WinCC archive data via OPC HDA (Historical Data Access) or by employing WinCC OLE DB-Provider via Microsoft DTSX-Packages.

When using the WinCC options Connectivity Pack and Connec- tivity Station, you can also access historical alarms via OPC A&E. In OPC A&E, the system displays a WinCC message as an alarm and, together with all the ancillary process values, passes it on to any subscribers on the production or company man- agement levels.

OPC A&E and OPC HDA are in the scope of delivery of the WinCC/Connectivity Pack option.
