Overview

Easy Access to Modbus Controllers

  • Read and write access to data in Modbus controllers
  • Quick and easy integration into OPC Client applications, such as SCADA or ERP systems
  • No changes to control program required

Graphical User Interface with Configuration Wizards

  • Easy-to-use graphical configuration interface
  • Intelligent wizards for configuration setup in just 3 clicks
  • Configuration of OPC Namespace e.g. by importing symbolic names from CoDeSys (Wago) project
  • CSV import of existing configurations from software applications like SCADA or process control systems

Support of OPC Unified Architecture (UA)

  • Optional expansion through dataFEED OPC Organizer UA
  • Integration of non-OPC UA-ready components into OPC UA applications
  • Easy integration of legacy and new controllers into "Industrie 4.0" *solutions
  • Cost savings through continued use of OPC Classic components
  • Support of all security mechanisms defined by OPC UA standard

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