Upgrading Siemens PCS7 V 6.1


Thread Starter


We need to upgrade our Siemens SCADA because the servers/datalogger are becoming slow. there will be no support for XP, spares for hardware with XP will no longer be available. The data logger freezes often.

We are using trends (outil Plume) set up by a programmer. We are dependent on him to provide support. We do not get any support from Siemens for this issue.

Is there a solution to be independent of Microsoft? It seems we need to upgrade to PCS7 v 8 with Windows 7. In a few years, Windows 7 will no longer be available. And we will have again to upgrade software & hardware.
