dataFEED MQTT Connector

Secure Transmission of Production Data in IoT Cloud Applications

The dataFEED MQTT Connector enables easy and efficient integration of production environments and their data into IoT (Internet of Things) and “Industrie 4.0”* solutions. A private or public cloud can be used for further processing and analyzing process data.

Overview

Gateway to IoT Clouds via MQTT

  • Easy control integration into IoT and Industry 4.0 solutions
  • Cost savings through inclusion of existing OPC Classic components in MQTT applications
  • Use of non-MQTT-ready components like Siemens S5 controllers into IoT cloud applications, e.g. in IBM Bluemix Cloud
  • No changes to control program required

State-of-the-Art Security

  • High data security provided to production applications
  • Support of all security mechanisms defined by MQTT standard, e.g. SSL encryption
  • Authentication by user name and password including user certificate
  • Data encryption using multiple encryption algorithms

Easy Configuration

  • State-of-the-art, intuitive graphical user interface for rapid configuration of MQTT communication
  • Use of intelligent, practice-oriented defaults, setup wizards and drag-and-drop support
  • Freely definable and adjustable JSON data format
  • Time savings through import of communication themes for easy and quick configuration

OPC UA (Unified Architecture) Support

  • Optional expansion through dataFEED OPC Organizer UA
  • Cost savings potential through integration of OPC UA applications and OPC UA-enabled controllers in IoT cloud applications

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