The Graphics application allows you to view the configured graphics representing your facility or equipment. You can change the current state of an object's properties from a graphic, filter your view of a graphic by discipline and section and you can zoom in and out for greater detail or for a birds-eye overview.
All available process data of a system can be recorded and applied to operational optimization. This lets you record information on plant states, temperature curves, switching states, and counter values in a form that is suitable for your purposes. The measured value data can be displayed and evaluated graphically.
Online trend records real-time values from your plant and displays them graphically in a Trend View. If a value changes, the data values are sent to the trend application. Offline trend data is used for the longer-term storage and retrieval of historical data for the analysis of entire plants or single processes. With offline trend, data is recorded directly in the automation station.
Trend and system activity data is stored in a Microsoft SQL Server database. Microsoft SQL Server Express is included with the Desigo CC software, and can be upgraded as required. The Trend Comparison View lets you time-shift the trend view to compare data at different times for quick analysis of changing conditions.
The Scheduler allows you to schedule events for Desigo CC and field panels at your facility. You can create daily or weekly schedules for Desigo CC and BACnet devices. You can fully configure and monitor standard BACnet schedules, calendars, command objects, and workstation-based schedules that can be used to support systems without built-in scheduling capabilities. Schedules are automatically associated with systems they control, so you can quickly navigate to the schedules of any selected object. A Timeline Viewer lets you view the details of multiple Desigo CCs and field panel schedules simultaneously, spanning a range of time.
The Desigo CC reporting tool includes standard reporting templates and lets you create fully configurable reports with custom logos, headers, footers, and layouts that include tabular and graphical system information. You can schedule reports and save them in CSV or PDF formats.
Event management allows you to manage events throughout the system. You can monitor and manage the progress of each event from initiation through resolution. The full history of each event issue is recorded, and you can generate event-related reports that you can view, save, and print.
The Log Viewer application provides an historic log of all user and system events and activities that have occurred. You can retrieve these historic events and activities for further analysis and investigation using sorting and filtering. Log views can be saved and exported if required.
The detailed log allows users to view the most recent records for any selected object. The same content filtering and sorting functionality available in the Log Viewer is possible in the detailed log.
You can configure Desigo CC to automatically or manually send email or SMS messages to specific recipients.
You can specify:
- What events the recipients should be notified for and when
- How notifications are escalated from one recipient to another until a notification message is responded to
- If a message is periodically sent to the operators stating that the system is running normally
- Which devices are used for the notification
Macros are predefined lists of commands that enable a user to send out a group of commands to specified devices with a single action. Some macros can be started manually while others may be part of schedules defined for time-based functions or automatic reactions. Macros are also used by the system to perform multiple command actions. These predefined system macros are applied to specific control actions, such as block commands to fire control panels and system backup functions.
Reactions are automations programmed in the system, so that when a specific situation occurs on site, a command or a series of commands is automatically executed.
You can define actions to be executed automatically when specific conditions are verified. Conditions can be based on time, on events, on a change of values, or on a combination of some or all. When conditions are met, the Reaction Processor executes a pre-configured list of commands.
Desigo CC can handle the different types of document templates used in the project. You can configure document templates in PDF, RTF, TXT, XLS, and HTML format.
