Wednesday, 21 October, 2020 | Supplied by: Ti2 Pty Ltd

Softing Industrial has released version v1.20 of edgeConnector Siemens. The software module is based on container technology and connects Siemens controllers with Industrial IoT applications. In addition to SIMATIC S7-1200 and S7-1500, the latest version also supports SIMATIC S7-300/400 controllers.

edgeConnector Siemens enables access to SIMATIC S7-1200 and S7-1500 data including optimised data blocks. 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 the ease of use that comes with virtualisation and container technology. Process and machine data are made available for IoT applications without any changes to controller or automation network configuration. Security features, such as the management of access rights for individual client applications, are designed to increase the security of the entire solution.
