dataFEED OPC Server B&R

Easy High-Performance Data Access to B&R Controllers

dataFEED OPC Server B&R is a dataFEED OPC Suite component and bundles the functionalities for fast and convenient access to process and diagnostic data in B&R controllers. Configure the OPC address space by simply browsing the controllers.

As an OPC Classic Server (or optional OPC UA Server), dataFEED OPC Server B&R enables the integration of B&R controllers into modern Industrie 4.0 solutions. Optionally, production data can be transferred via the MQTT, REST or MindConnect protocols in IoT Cloud or Big Data applications on Microsoft Azure IoT, Amazon AWS, IBM Watson IoT, Bosch PPM and Siemens MindSphere platforms.
