dataFEED Exporter

Export of SIMATIC S7 Symbols from TIA Portal or STEP7 Projects

The free dataFEED Exporter software enables simple export of symbol information from Siemens STEP 7 and TIA Portal projects for further use in Softing's dataFEED OPC Suite, uaGate SI, edgeGate and echocollect e/r/m products.

After importing the project file, dataFEED Exporter displays all data blocks and symbols in hierarchical order. After completion of editing and removal of unneeded data items, the symbol information is saved in an encrypted SDFI file for import into Softing products.

To export data items from a TIA Portal project, dataFEED Exporter must be executed on a PC with the appropriate TIA version. During installation, parallel installations of different TIA Portal versions are detected.
