The option SIMATIC WinCC/Event Notifier provides a calendar-based user interface in the style of Microsoft Office, for easy and safe planning of notifications for selected persons in defined time slots. The option consists of a Calendar Control plus editors with which notifications as well as contacts can be configured and managed as potential targets for notification.
During the configuration the notifications are assigned to directly selectable events in the WinCC signaling system, contacts can be recruited from the WinCC UserAdministrator even during runtime.
Finally, a Communication Service Editor enables the creation of the communication service via e-mail service at the time of configuration, i.e. the notifications triggered in the WinCC signaling system in the case of a specific event are always dispatched via e-mail. However, the e-mail can also be routed as SMS to a mobile phone via Provider Gateway, if the relevant contact has been suitably established and the person in question has enabled this service for himself with his provider. If several persons or groups of persons are installed in Calendar Control in parallel in the same time slot, escalation stages can be implemented by the assignment of different escalation times (= reaction time before the notification).
