edgeConnector Siemens connects Siemens SIMATIC S7-300/400, and S7-1200/1500 controller and provides access to data via an OPC UA server interface. As a docker container, it offers flexible deployment options, for example on devices running Azure IoT Edge or AWS IoT Greengrass.
The application is easy to configure locally via a built-in Web interface. It can also be managed remotely via its REST API. Configuration is flexible and includes fine-tuned security settings (e.g. role based access rights for OPC UA client applications).
As a first strategic extension of Softing’s dataFEED product family into virtualization- and container technology, the new product leverages Softing deep experience with brownfield connectivity and OPC UA technology, and makes it available for new and highly efficient IoT solution architectures.
The product can simply get mounted next to the SINUMERIK NCU on a DIN rail and requires 24 VDC power supply. It has two independent Ethernet interfaces, one addressing the machine and the other addressing the IT network. Between these, the gateway acts as a firewall. The configuration is performed in just a few clicks using any web browser and the integrated web server.
