Explore Secure Integration Server: A Secure, Flexible OPC UA-Based IT/OT Integration Solution

Owing to the explosion of the Internet of Things, the number of OT/IT applications increases, and so too does network complexity. Having an abstraction interface can go a long way toward reducing this complexity. Our Secure Integration Server (SIS) is one such example that provides a layer that simplifies management between the OT and IT domains based on the OPC UA standard.

Realizing Modern IoT Applications Through Central and Secure Data Integration

For companies with global production sites, centralized secure data integration is the key factor for competitiveness, progress and safeguarding their existence. After all, the operating data from thousands of programmable logic controllers must be integrated, aggregated and securely processed - especially in view of future Industrial IoT applications. Softing offers professional and reliable solutions, as a case study from a customer shows.

New options with container applications

Container applications open up new possibilities for use in automation technology with many advantages. edgeConnector products from Softing’s dataFEED family offer state-of-the-art access to process data in SIMATIC S7, SINUMERIK 840D and Modbus TCP controllers. They are using a Docker container technology, enabling customers to choose between a conventional hardware gateway, middleware or a Docker container application when implementing their Industry 4.0 and IIoT applications.

HART-IP in the process industry

Driven by the digitalization of field devices in the process industry, the growing importance of predictive maintenance and the increasing possibilities offered by centralized field device configuration, digital communication protocols like HART-IP are on the rise. In addition to providing access to a device’s process variables, the protocol also supports device parameter setting and advanced diagnostics. HART-IP will therefore play an important role in enabling the Industrial Internet of Things in process plants. Softing supports HART-IP technology and offers an NOA-compliant gateway with its smartLink DP product.

Transparent data for Industry 4.0 connectivity with PROFIBUS!

While plants in discrete and process manufacturing often comprise both legacy and new equipment, they still need to be controlled and managed effectively. This requires a modern communication architecture that is able to aggregate their heterogeneous data. smartLink from Softing facilitates interface-neutral data integration in complex production systems.
