MindSphere Connector

Secure Transfer of Production Data to the Siemens MindSphere Cloud

dataFEED MindSphere Connector enables the simple and efficient connectivity not only of all Siemens controllers, from the SIMATIC S5 to the latest SIMATIC S7, but also of a wide range of other controllers, e.g. from Rockwell Automation (Allen-Bradley), Schneider Electric or B&R, to Siemens MindSphere cloud solutions. This makes the process data available for further processing and analysis within MindSphere. Thanks to the integrated Store&Forward functionality, data is buffered when the connection is interrupted and automatically forwarded when the connection is re-established.


Data Integration in MindSphere Cloud Solutions

  • Integration of controllers from leading manufacturers (Siemens, B&R, Rockwell Automation, Schneider Electric, Wago, Mitsubishi)
  • Cost savings by using existing OPC Classic components
  • Use of modules without cloud interface (e.g. SIMATIC S5 PLCs) in MindSphere cloud applications
  • Intermediate storage of data in case of disconnection

Simple and Fast Configuration

  • Configuration wizard with practice-oriented presettings
  • Intuitive graphical user interface with drag & drop support
  • Automatic data type conversion between PLC, OPC UA and MindConnect
  • No modification to controller program required
  • Extensive flexible trigger options

State-of-the-Art Security

  • Guarantee of high data security for production applications
  • Authentication via certificates
  • SSL encryption support
