Greater flexibility through easy access from any location

Thanks to modern HTML5 technology, WinCC Unified allows authorized operators access via any modern web browser, without having to install any separate plug-ins at all. With Siemens’ own TIA Portal V17 automation software, not only for WinCC Unified PC, but now also for all Unified Comfort Panels.



Less engineering required due to limitless scalability

WinCC Unified is the first visualization system that allows limitless scaling from very small solutions directly on the PLC, up to large applications in the SCADA environment. Once created, operating screens and components can be reused. This not only reduces the effort required to create them, but also ensures consistent usability during operation. New in TIA Portal V17: WinCC Unified View of Things – a functionality for implementing small visualizations directly on the controllers of the S7-1500 series.


Maximum openness for the integrated digitization of manufacturing processes

In order to be able to digitize manufacturing processes on an integrated basis, open interfaces are required that ensure a cross-departmental flow of data. WinCC Unified provides various interfaces as standard. These not only ensure communication with other IT systems but also allow web-based tools to be integrated into the visualization of WinCC Unified.
