OPC UA Server Gateway with MQTT Support for SIMATIC S7 Controllers

uaGate SI makes data integration easier than ever before.

The gateway supports the connection of SIMATIC S7-300, S7-400, S7-1200 and S7-1500 controllers from Siemens and uses the OPC UA standard for a simple and secure data integration of new and existing plants in higher-level management systems, such as ERP, MES or SCADA systems.

In addition, uaGate SI also offers MQTT Publisher functionality, enabling direct integration of PLC data into private or public IoT cloud applications on the IT side. The generic MQTT implementation supports the use of a large number of different cloud providers. Similar to the OPC UA standard, MQTT also supports various security mechanisms such as encrypted connections, certificates and user authentication, thus contributing to a high level of data security.

With this functionality, uaGate SI is a compact, secure, future-oriented and proven gateway for data integration.

uaGATE 840D

OPC UA Server Gateway for Siemens SINUMERIK 840D Controllers

The gateway allows reading the complete SINUMERIK 840D machine tool data. It provides access to the NC part with its axis, tool, program and drive data as well as specific alarms. In addition, a connection to the integrated SIMATIC Siemens S7 can be established. The data from both connections are available via the OPC UA and MQTT interfaces and thus can be used for various Industrie 4.0 applications.

With uaGate 840D, important spindle and axis data, such as torque and power consumption, can be read and reused in various applications. In addition, the active program as well as sub programs and the currently used tool is accessible. For instance, these data are available for condition monitoring, predictive maintenance, for data logging or for analysis tasks, such as spindle and axis monitoring. The gateway can also be used to acquire data from older SINUMERIK 840D controllers. Due to the preconfigured data symbol file for the standard use case based on one channel, three axes and one spindle, the user does not require any specific SINUMERIK know-how for reading the data.

The product can simply get mounted next to the SINUMERIK NCU on a DIN rail and requires 24 VDC power supply. It has two independent Ethernet interfaces, one addressing the machine and the other addressing the IT network. Between these, the gateway acts as a firewall. The configuration is performed in just a few clicks using any web browser and the integrated web server.

SOFTING – DP Configurator

PROFIBUS DP Configurator

PROFIBUS DP configurator : V 2.02

PROFIBUS Configurator is a versatile configuration tool. It allows the user to define PROFIBUS
networks from a master’s point of view. PROFIBUS Configurator can be used in various application
scenarios to configure Softing PROFIBUS DP masters.
Depending on the use case the functionality reaches from defining the network structure with its
connected devices and their individual device parameters over interactive online tests of particular
inputs and outputs up to the definition of tag names and data types for all available process data as
they are used by Softing’s PROFIBUS OPC server.

Offline configuration
The goal of an offline configuration is to prepare a binary configuration file for a controller that
uses a Softing PROFIBUS DP master. The PROFIBUS DP master may either be based on a PC interface board or implemented as an
embedded solution using Softing’s protocol stacks and IP cores.

Online configuration
Online configuration makes use of a PROFIBUS interface boards installed on the PC
where the PROFIBUS Configurator is used.

This allows for scanning the network for connected devices and for interactive
communication with these devices. A network configuration can be activated using the interface board as the active master for the devices connected to it. Defining tag names for process variables

For each configured device it is possible to assign named process variables to its inputs and output. These variable are also assigned a data type (e.g. Boolean for
single bits or Signed Byte for an analog input). These variables may subsequently be used inside the PROFIBUS Configurator for purposes like commisioning the network. For that purpose variables can be read and written as soon as the current configuration is activated.
Furthermore, the named variables serve as so-called “OPC items” if such a configuration is used by a Softing PROFIBUS OPC server.
