SIMATIC WinCC is a modular process monitoring system that offers powerful automation monitoring functions. WinCC offers full SCADA functionality under Windows for all industries – from single-user configuration to distributed multi-station configurations with redundant servers and multi-site solutions with web clients.
WinCC system software
There are two basic variants of the WinCC system software:
• WinCC complete package (RC: Runtime and configuration license)
• WinCC Executive Pack (RT: Runtime license) Both are scaled in 128, 512, 2k, 8k, 64k, 100k, 150k or 256k PowerTags.
PowerTags only refer to process tags that have a process connection to the controller or other data sources via a WinCC communication channel. Up to 32 messages and 256 configurable analog interrupts can be generated from a process variable. In addition, the system also provides internal variables without a process connection as an additional service.
PowerPacks allow you to increase the number of usable PowerTags. In this way, WinCC follows the development of your application. You can start with the smaller version and add Powerpacks as needed.
PowerPacks also allow the number of available archive tags to be increased from 512 (included in the basic version) to 120,000 in packages of 1,500, 5,000, 10,000, 30,000 or 80,000.

Through Comprehensive Support, WinCC offers a software update service (SUS – Software Update Service) in the form of a comprehensive support package, which, in addition to the update, provides extensive information and useful software for WinCC.
