Importing Data into WinCC
SIMATIC WinCC flexible Panels or PC-based runtime systems allow the user to store process data ( Tags and alarms ) or operator input ( Audit Trails ) into CSV-files. To archive these data for a long time period, a central SIMATIC WinCC System may be used.
The WinCC Add-on PM-OPEN IMPORT offers the possibility to import the WinCC flexible archives automatically into the WinCC system. A copy of the WinCC flexible archive, created on the WinCC server, is imported by PM-OPEN IMPORT. Of course the original timestamps of WinCC flexible are obtained. As soon as the data is imported, the WinCC standard functionality can be used to display and evaluate the data. After the import, PM-OPEN IMPORT deletes the copy of the WinCC flexible archive.
