DMC is proud to be presenting once again at this year's Siemens Automation Summit. The annual event focuses on the end users of Siemens automation products through four days of educational programming and networking opportunities. The 2014 Siemens Automation Summit will be held June 23 - 26, 2014, at Walt Disney World's Contemporary Resort in Orlando, FL.
As a Siemens Solution Partner, DMC looks forward to sharing best practices and swapping enhancement ideas at the summit each year. If you're attending, be sure to stop by the following DMC-led sessions.
Getting the Most Out of WinCC OA - Kristie Shea
Explore some of the unique benefits of Siemens Open Architecture SCADA platform and learn about specific projects where these object oriented tools were used to meet demanding requirements without changing a single line of PLC code. SCADA solutions vary greatly in requirements such as size, scope, speed, networking, and complexity to name a few. Based on a project's requirements, learn how to best choose between the three different Siemens SCADA offerings: WinCC OA, WinCC V7 or WinCC TIA Professional.

Extending S7 PLC Capabilities by Leveraging the Unique Strengths of the WinAC Platform
- Alex Krejcie
Automation applications often have specific hardware and software requirements that pose integration challenges for system designers. The WinAC RTX platform is commonly used to provide deterministic real-time algorithm processing in a PC environment. See how DMC has been able to reduce application costs through hardware simplification and quicker development time by leveraging the unique capabilities of the WinAC platform. This is done in order to perform powerful tasks such as integration with devices that are not easily supported by typical PLC systems, direct access to SQL databases and more.

Utilizing Siemens Best Practices When Leveraging Existing Rockwell Code - John Sullivan
Are you in the process of switching to Siemens hardware from Rockwell but already have a working Rockwell program? Some people try to copy it over directly and miss out on the great opportunity that Siemens provides to make your code more flexible and reliable. There will be a discussion of design considerations to note when making the switch, as well as situations in which it will be important to break away from outdated modes of thinking about PLC code.
