Online Computer Link via TCP/IP
Where comprehensive special solutions were previously required for an online computer link, PM-OPEN TCP/IP provides an economical solution to link computer systems (MRP, laboratory systems, logistical and quality management systems, etc.) with the automation and process control level.
PM-OPEN TCP/IP permits the bi-directional exchange of data (tags, alarms) between WinCC and one or more computers (peers) via the TCP/IP protocol.Another use of PM-OPEN TCP/IP is in the coupling of several WinCC stations to exchange or centrally acquire tags and alarms. PM-OPEN TCP/IP also supports redundant WinCC configurations. Through the integration of "Visual Basic for Applications" (VBA), PM-OPEN TCP/IP provides an ideal development platform for the implementation of individual IT solutions.
SIMATIC WinCC and PM-OPEN TCP/IP thus form a central information platform for local and company-wide IT integration. For example, the coupling of the automation level with MES or Office applications.
PM-OPEN TCP/IP V8.3 is released since 2012/02/10. New features are the releases for 64-Bit operating systems as well as the releases for SIMATIC WinCC V7 SP3 and SIMATIC WinCC V11 Runtime. For details please read the latest
