dataFEED OPC Server Siemens

Easy High Performance Data Access to Siemens PLCs Including Optimized Data Blocks

dataFEED OPC Server Siemens is a dataFEED OPC Suite component and bundles the functionalities for fast and convenient access to process and diagnostic data in Siemens SIMATIC S7 and Siemens-compatible controllers. Use symbolic addressing to access optimized data blocks in S7-1200 and S7-1500 PLCs and configure the OPC address space by simply browsing the controllers.

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