Universal access: the Client-Server Concept, with redundancy Thanks to the network-wide client-server concept of SICAM 230, you can access and process central functions such as alarm and sequence of event lists, archiving, acknowledgments and configuring from any workstation. The SICAM 230 redundancy concept is based on two servers working in parallel, and which are continually being synchronized through the network link. This ensures that messages, fi le entries, derived counters, variable identifiers, trend memories and many other data are brought up-to-date.
Open to all: communications interfaces in SICAM 230 Automation systems such as SICAM 1703 can be interconnected serially (IEC 60870-5-101) or through a LAN or WAN (IEC 60870-5-104). The open interfaces in SICAM 230 equip the system for future standardization trends in the automation or IT sector. What’s more, additional PLC servers (such as Profi bus FMS, SAIA etc.) are available for standardized remote control connections.
Everything under control: alerting functions and event management Use SICAM 230 to adapt your alerting functions and event management perfectly to your application through variable definitions and complex filter conditions available for the output. Flexible reaction matrixes with standardizable processing objects are available to assist you. The output can be issued in the form of reports, open and closed logs or as an export in standard fi le formats. In the event of a breakdown, monitored image hierarchies guide your operating personnel from the overview image to the acknowledgment-capable alarm in the detail process view.
Reliable trend recognition: The SICAM 230 Trend Curve Module The trend curve display feature in SICAM 230 gives you a fast and precise overview of current developments derived from the evaluation of online and archival data.
Logs, wherever and however you need them The SICAM 230 Log Generator generates closed logs based on online and archival data in a simple and convenient manner. This includes even complex logs with a diversity of layout and computational requirements, which can be output on-screen, as a file, or as a print-out.
Error-free configuring: SICAM 230 Project Manager In addition to the object-oriented, menu-driven parameterization with the graphical user interface, you’ll fi nd many other convenient tools in the SICAM 230 Project Manager. These include graphics import, import/export of the data model, copy and alignment functions, zoom, online help, etc. The data model is generated and maintained with the OPM II object-oriented process data manager as part of the TOOLBOX II.

The SICAM RTU product family is being developed to offer solutions for secondary technology in all kind of electrical substations. The family members are able to perform local control tasks based on the principle that the time-critical process automation tasks in a multi-hierarchical network are performed as close as possible to the process.
The system concept of the SICAM RTU product family provides high functionality and flexibility for different automation applications. Typical tasks performed by these automation systems are:
The SICAM RTUs have been also successfully used in other fields of the energy industry: monitoring and control of oil&gas pipelines and underground gas storages, flight control systems and automation of airport utilities.
Design and functions Compared to WinCC flexible, which has set the standards in engineering for years, configuration efficiency has been further increased, particularly if further TIA components such as the SIMATIC S7 Controller are part of the automation solution. The perfect interaction with STEP 7 in the TIA Portal prevents multiple entries and guarantees consistent data managementat all times
Perfect interaction in the engineering framework The design of the software editors in the TIA Portal is based on a shared layout and shared navigation concept. The configuration of the hardware, logic programming, parameterization of a frequency converter, or the design of an HMI screen - each environment has the same editor design, which is specifically designed for intuitive use to save time and costs.
Configuring with libraries and faceplates The library concept of the TIA Portal is not limited to the supplied program blocks or faceplates. With the TIA Portal, the user can create his own libraries of many various parts of the engineering objects, which can be easily reused.
Intelligent tools for efficient configuration Time-saving configuration means: delegating tasks. SIMATIC WinCC supports the project engineer with wizards for routine tasks and a lot of sophisticated tools and functions that ensure excellent results in shortest realization time.
SICAM PAS can be easily included in existing systems and used for system integration, too. With modern diagnostics, it optimally supports commissioning and maintenance. SICAM PAS is clearly structured and reliable, thanks to its open, fully documented and tested system.
Thanks to the homogenous system platform and extensive experience of more than a million successfully operating devices in the field worldwide SIPROTEC enjoys top recognition among users. SIPROTEC is the industry standard for digital protection technology today.
