Simplify Machine Connectivity to Business Apps with Softing edgePlug Software for the Siemens Industrial Edge

Are you looking for an easy way to use data from your Siemens PLC to optimize your processes and reduce costs? Then integrating the Siemens Industrial Edge into your automation and IT environment can be the solution for you. Softing's edgePlugs, which provide connectivity to the Siemens Industrial Edge, can help you do just that.

Phoenix Digital Networking Modules Connect Newer Head-End PLCs to Legacy I/O

If you are a Rockwell customer, looking for a cost-effective way to connect new head-end processors to legacy remote I/O networks, reducing expenses and minimizing the downtime associated with a legacy network upgrade, there is a solution to this challenging scenario. As a Rockwell Technology Partner, Softing offers an industrial networking solution from Phoenix Digital that lets you install the new head-end control system and keep your legacy network and legacy I/O.

A Built-for-Purpose PLC to Database Connectivity Solution

System integration using a PC and custom code can come with a lot of errors in project estimation, increase risk, cost money and possibly even put your customer at risk. Fortunately, there are built-for-purpose integration solutions that eliminate the PC, eliminate custom code, and eliminate protocol conversion for PLC-to-database and cloud integration projects. In this blog, we show you how tManager from Rockwell, an in-chassis PLC module for bidirectional data exchange between enterprise systems and ControlLogix® and CompactLogix™ PLCs, does just that.

Easily Connect the Cloud to Siemens PLCs with Softing edgeConnector Modules

Softing has partnered with Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft® Azure to offer industrial edge connectivity solutions that you can deploy from the AWS or Azure cloud. We show you how to quickly and securely connect machines, PLCs and devices to cloud-based Industrial IoT solutions in a typical brownfield project using our connectivity modules for the Industrial Edge.

How to Eliminate IT Support For Your OT Networks

Control engineers and those in the manufacturing and the process industries worry about three things taking down their processes: the machines going down, the programmable logic controllers (PLC) or devices going down, and the network going down. This is where Phoenix Digital switches come in. Part of the Rockwell Automation Technology Partner program, these purpose-built Ethernet networking devices were designed specifically for control engineers to network PLCs and Ethernet devices in manufacturing and process environments.
