dataFEED uaGATE SI : Compact Gateway for Siemens Controllers Providing OPC UA and MQTT Interface

dataFEED uaGate SI is a gateway to Siemens PLCs. It integrates OPC UA functionality for easy and secure data connectivity with higher-level management systems, such as ERP, MES or SCADA, into new or existing plants. Using the MQTT Publisher functionality allows integrating controller data into IoT cloud applications. As a result, dataFEED uaGate SI covers a compact size, an forward-looking approach as well as an industry-proven hardware.


Easy Controller Connectivity

  • Connectivity between controllers and IT (ERP, MES, SCADA) systems as well as between controllers using the open, platform-independent and market-proven OPC UA standard
  • OPC UA technology supporting easy local and global networking as well as routing through firewalls
  • MQTT Publisher functionality for transferring production data into IoT cloud solutions
  • Gateway configuration based on web interface allowing easy symbol import directly from SIMATIC STEP 7 and TIA Portal projects

Ultimate Security

  • Physically separated network interfaces preventing intrusions
  • Individually protected access to PLC data
  • Separate configuration rights on controller and IT levels, especially beneficial to OEMs and machine builders wanting to keep proprietary controller configuration undisclosed
  • Data encryption and user authentication meeting highest security requirements

Investment Protection

  • Adding modern communication capabilities to existing plants
  • Standard component that can be integrated into both small and large automation projects
  • Suitable for new applications and retrofits

Zero Maintenance

  • All-hardware gateway – no need for software updates, operating system patches or PC maintenance
  • No PLC programming or dedicated PC required
  • Failure-free operation for years after device has been plugged-in and configured once
