The new WinCC OA Agent

07-27-2018 | Alarm IT Factory GmbH

From now on the Alarm IT Factory offers a new agent for the Alarm Control Center to all customers and interested persons – the WinCC OA Agent. That way the comprehensive portfolio of a specially developed ACC agent is increased again.

The perfect integration of the agent into the core system had top priority to us software engineers and alarming specialists! Through the usage of the special WinCC OA programming interface the integration has been realized successfully.

Thanks to the integration of our agent there are completely new possibilities of the alarm management for the end user in WinCC OA:


  • The easy configuration of the agent ensures an easy choice of the message receivers.


  • Filtering on the bases of message priority: This allows you to alarm only from specific definable limits/priorities onwards. It is also possible to solely determine specific data points as alarming triggers. All other messages are filtered out for you by the ACC. That way you (or your maintenance staff) only receive the relevant alarm messages.


  • If you like, messages can be acknowledged by the agent directly in WinCC OA by the agent. After the alarming has taken place from the control system, it only needs to be acknowledged one more time on the respective terminal device. That way the annoying double acknowledgement is eliminated.


  • Event forwarding: Events like “Message acknowledged” or “Message gone” can be forwarded to the ACC in order to inform the message recipients about this.


  • Redundancy and that way failure safety is the top priority for the ACC again!
    This means: Do not miss or not even receive an important message again. Because the ACC always alarms reliable thanks to (optional) redundant systems and perfect connection to the WinCC OA!


  • Message texts can easily be configured with different parameters from WinCC OA by the user.


Furthermore the WinCC OA Agent of the Alarm Control Center offers numerous further useful functions like the support of multilingualism, the organisation and handling of mass and individual messages.
