Machine connectivity in brownfield projects: How to unlock Siemens S5 and S7-300 PLCs
Efficient access to machine and process data is of central importance for both traditional shopfloor applications and innovative IoT solutions. Plant manufacturers, operators, and maintenance personnel are therefore faced with the challenge of ensuring data availability.
However, especially in plants with old controllers, data acquisition can be very difficult. This is where the OPC UA standard has proven to be the best choice due to its independence from operating systems, protocols, and drivers. Using Siemens S5 and S7 controllers as examples, we will present solutions in the webinar that can be used to read data easily. We will also show you how this data can be made available for various applications via standardized interfaces such as OPC UA and MQTT.
In the webinar you will learn:
- How to connect Siemens SIMATIC S5 PLCs via Ethernet
- How to collect data from Siemens SIMATIC S5 and S7 PLCs and integrate them into modern Industry 4.0 solutions via OPC UA
- Using a practical example and a live demo:
- How to integrate data easily and securely with the help of dataFEED OPC Suite Extended from Softing Industrial – a software solution for OPC communication and IoT cloud connectivity
