OPC Server for SIMATIC S5/S7 and Siemens Compatible Controllers

Quick and convenient access to PLC data via OPC or OPC UA

The dataFEED OPC Server Siemens offers integration of process and diagnostic data in SIMATIC S5, S7-200, S7-300, S7-400, S7-1200 and S7-1500 controllers as well as Siemens compatible PLCs into higher level applications. The OPC Server's intelligent setup assistant enables the complete configuration of data exchange by just 3 clicks. With Siemens controllers, the OPC namespace can be automatically defined through import of existing PLC projects from STEP7 or TIA Portal.
