Connecting controllers with IIoT applications


Connecting controllers with IIoT applications

The new version v1.20 of the Softing edgeConnector Siemens allows to connect a variety of Simatic S7 controllers with industrial IoT applications. edgeConnector Siemens enables access to Simatic S7-1200 and S7-1500 data including optimized data blocks. Version v1.20 additionally supports Simatic S7-300/400 controllers.

Client applications have access to data via the interoperability standard OPC UA. The product can be configured locally via a built-in web interface, or remotely via a REST interface. It seamlessly integrates with Azure IoT Edge and AWS IoT Greengrass and is made available via online repositories such as Docker Hub.

Users benefit from flexible deployment and ease of use which comes with virtualization and container technology. Valuable process and machine data are made available for innovative IoT applications without any changes to controller or automation network configuration. Advanced security features such as the management of access right for individual client applications increase the security of the entire solution.

edgeConnector Siemens is the first strategic expansion of our dataFEED product family to include virtualization and container technology”, says Wolfgang Wende, Senior VP Sales at Softing Industrial. "It leverages Softing´s extensive experience with brownfield connectivity and OPC UA technology and makes it available for new and highly efficient IoT solution architectures.
