Softing edgeConnector Modbus Docker Container

Tuesday, 24 August, 2021 | Supplied by: Ti2 Pty Ltd

After edgeConnector Siemens for connecting SIMATIC S7 controllers and edgeConnector 840D for accessing data from SINUMERIK 840D controllers, Softing has now introduced edgeConnector Modbus. This Docker Container is suitable for connecting Modbus TCP controllers, from companies such as Schneider Electric, Wago, Beckhoff or Phoenix Contact, to industrial IoT applications. edgeConnector Modbus can also be used to collect energy data or other process variables from Modbus-compatible sensors. An integrated OPC UA server enables simple and secure data connection to higher-level management systems, such as ERP, MES or process visualisation systems. As a further communication protocol, MQTT makes it possible to integrate control data directly into private or public IoT cloud applications.

All edgeConnector products support current security standards such as SSL/TLS, X.509 certificates, authentication and data encryption. They are easy to configure locally via an integrated web interface or can be managed remotely via a REST API.

edgeConnector Modbus can be downloaded from online directories such as Docker Hub or Microsoft Azure Marketplace.
