Softing Industrial Automation has released a new version of dataFEED OPC Suite Extended, offering MQTT subscriber functionality and extensive options for data preprocessing.
Version V5.10 of Softing’s dataFEED OPC Suite Extended has been released. With the help of the new MQTT Subscriber, data can be received from an MQTT Broker and transmitted to other applications via OPC UA or written to a controller.
“The dataFEED OPC Suite Extended makes the provision of production data for IoT cloud applications simple and secure,” says Andreas Roeck, Product Manager at Softing Industrial. “With each update, we are working to further expand the possibilities of data integration and make them even more flexible. This way, we offer our customers and partners a future-proof solution.”
This allows, for example, a recipe manager to be implemented in the cloud. Also, extensive and flexible data preprocessing features now permit the execution of mathematical and logical calculations.
Use cases include converting a temperature value from Celsius to Fahrenheit or filtering out a specific bit of a word.
dataFEED OPC Suite Extended is a complete package for OPC communication and cloud connectivity in a single product.
The suite can be used to access the controllers of leading suppliers and to connect to IoT devices.
