Directly access KNX from SIMATIC WinCC
Today, communication of SIMATIC WinCC with your KNX building control is only possible using additional soft- or hardware solutions like OPC-Servers or communication compontents for PLCs. To get the communication to work each of those solutions need a seperate configuration in addition to the configuration necessary in SIMATIC WinCC. Beside the additional configuration effort, this set-ups hold an increased potential for errors caused by erroneous configurations. With that analysis of communication problems is very often time-consuming or even not possible.

Reach your goal more quickly
Through the import of ETS4 and ETS5 projects you can import group addresses into the tag management of WinCC project and configure them as required. With that all datapoints (group addresses) configured inside ETS are available in WinCC and can be used instantly.
