With version 7.0, SIMATIC WinCC creates new possibilities for the process visualization: WinCC offers complete operation and monitoring functionality under Windows XP and VISTA for all industries - from simple single-station systems up to distributed multi-station systems with redundant servers and cross-site web connections. WinCC is the information hub for the enterprise-wide vertical integration.
The WinCC basic software forms the core for a multitude of different applications. On the basis of the open programming interfaces, a large number of WinCC options and WinCC add-ons have already been developed.
