Softing adds MQTT connector to dataFEED OPC Suite

January 19, 2017 - The latest version of Softing’s dataFEED OPC Suite now includes an MQTT connector. This is designed to make the transfer of data to IoT Clouds simple and secure.

With Softing’s dataFEED OPC Suite, a secure IoT cloud data application can now be \implemented. The MQTT Connector enables the integration of automation devices via MQTT Publisher functionality in IoT cloud applications, e.g. IBM Bluemix Cloud. Security during transmission is guaranteed through the encryption of the data using SSL/TLS.

Softing‘s dataFEED OPC Suite combines OPC Server and OPC Middleware functionality into one software solution. The integrated MQTT gateway allows integration of legacy and new controllers into IoT solutions. It is also possible to integrate components without MQTT support such as, for example, Siemens, B&R and Rockwell controllers. The state-of-the-art user interface with intelligent, common sense default settings and intuitive user guidance is designed to make it exceptionally easy for plant manufacturers and maintenance engineers to quickly and easily configure their IoT communication. The modular design of the suite offers the user the flexibility since only the required functionality has to be licensed.
