Process visualisation enhanced with telecontrol

The Siemens Industry Automation Division has developed a telecontrol option for its process visualisation system Simatic WinCC V7.

Simatic WinCC TeleControl is ideally suited for smaller installations and complements the existing Siemens telecontrol portfolio. In addition to Simatic PCS 7 TeleControl for process automation it also includes PVSS for hierarchical widely distributed system architectures.

The Simatic WinCC TeleControl software option uses a WAN (Wide Area Network) to flexibly integrate remote terminal units equipped with Simatic automation components into the installation’s central process visualisation system. Main applications are in the water and wastewater industries as well as oil and gas.

Simatic WinCC TeleControl supports the three main telecontrol protocols IEC 60870-5 101/104, DNP V3 (serial or TCP/IP) and Sinaut ST7 (serial or TCP/IP). The software can be customised for the requirements of a particular installation.

A uniform user interface for local and remote processes minimises the risk of errors. Employee training costs are reduced since the Simatic WinCC process visualisation system is used both for telecontrol operations and for the actual process visualisation. This results in considerably lower installation, start-up and maintenance costs.
