Run the IoT Edge Module and connect up to 5 Siemens SINUMERIK 840D SolutionLine and PowerLine Controllers. Acts as OPC UA server on Azure IoT Edge, for example as data source for OPC Publisher by Microsoft.
Softing dataFEED edgeConnector 840D is a containerized SINUMERIK 840D SolutionLine and PowerLine connectivity module adding OPC UA Server functionality. The software can run as IoT Edge Module. After the deployment, it is possible to configure Southbound and Northbound communication via local GUI or REST interface. Additionally it is possible to use MQTT to connect to MQTT Brokers in local or cloud enviroments.
For southbound communication it is possible to connect up to 5 SINUMERIK 840D SolutionLine and PowerLine controllers. The Namespace configuration is pre-configured and can be extended via STEP7/TIA Portal or .awl files.
The northbound communication runs with standardized OPC UA communication for data integration into management systems like ERP, MES or SCADA or for data exchange with other docker containers like Microsoft OPC Publisher for cloud scenarios. The application supports security standards like SSL/TLS, X.509 certificates, authentication and data encryption.
The container runs for 72h in demo mode. Fully activate the application via BYOL from Softing. This also requires the installation of the Softing floating license server.
