dataFEED OPC Suite Extended

All-in-one Data Integration Solution for Your OPC UA Communication as well as Big Data and IoT Cloud Connectivity

dataFEED OPC Suite Extended is a software solution for OPC UA and OPC Classic communication and for cloud connectivity in a single product. Via the integrated OPC UA Server inclusive Store And Forward, it provides a secure and reliable access to PLCs of all leading manufacturers such as Siemens SIMATIC S7, Rockwell ControlLogix, B&R, Mitsubishi and Modbus controllers (e.g. from Wago).

As a gateway between the two OPC standards, dataFEED OPC Suite also enables the integration of existing OPC Classic components and applications into modern Industrie 4.0 OPC UA solutions. Using the MQTT and REST protocols, production data can be transferred to IoT Cloud or Big Data applications on Microsoft Azure IoT, Amazon AWS, IBM Watson IoT, Bosch PPM and Siemens MindSphere platforms. dataFEED OPC Suite also supports the storage of production data in a file, in an SQL database or in MongoDB and CouchDB.

Simple and Independent Access to Controllers and IoT

  • Read and write access to data in controllers from leading manufacturers
  • Use without modifying control program
  • Easy integration of existing and new controllers into “Industrie 4.0“* solutions
  • Integration of non-OPC UA-capable components, such as Siemens S7 controllers, into OPC UA solutions
  • Cost savings through further use of already existing OPC Classic components
  • Gateway functionality for connecting controllers and components with integrated OPC UA Server to OPC Classic applications
  • Direct connection of IoT devices (MQTT Publisher) without using an MQTT Broker

Gateway to Big Data and IoT Clouds Solutions

  • Integration of automation devices via MQTT Publisher, MindConnect and REST Client functionality in IoT cloud applications, e.g. Siemens MindSphere, Bosch PPM or Microsoft IoT Connected Factory
  • Easy integration of production data into NoSQL Big Data storage solutions such as MongoDB
  • State-of-the-Art security by SSL/TLS support, including

Easy Configuration

  • Modern, intuitive graphical user interface for fast OPC communication configuration
  • Use of smart hands-on defaults, setup wizards and drag-and-drop support
  • Time savings through effective and efficient configuration of distributed automation systems with many OPC UA and OPC Classic Servers

*“Industrie 4.0“ is a German government-driven initiative for implementing an industrial “Internet of Things”
