Softing Industrial at SPS 2021 – Connectivity for “Industrial Edge”

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

Industrial IoT applications offer a wide range of opportunities to improve production, save costs, and plan maintenance in advance. To fully exploit them, access to machine and device data essential. This access can be achieved efficiently, securely and scalably by combining connectivity and edge computing in an «Industrial Edge».

Find out at the trade show how you can use Softing products to build an Industrial Edge with Amazon AWS, with Microsoft Azure, or cloud-independently with Softing’s own device management system. Also learn about our new connectivity products for Siemens Industrial Edge.

Product Highlights for Industrial Edge

  • edgeConnector product family – machine and process data integration for the Industrial edge, connecting PLCs and CNC machines. Now supporting an application programming interface (API) for easy integration with 3rd party products and remote configuration.
  • edgePlug product family – machine and process data integration for Siemens Industrial Edge
  • edgeAggregator – OPC UA server aggregation and enhanced security for OPC UA based OT/IT-integration with the Industrial Edge.

Data integration for IIoT

Through data integration, production data can be turned into meaningful and valuable information for optimizing processes. We offer software products such as OPC servers, OPC middleware, and IT/OT integration solutions for the secure and reliable integration of machine data from controllers – locally or in the cloud. Our family of gateways and links is available for coupling industrial bus systems and accessing OT networks from the IT level. These products allow the use of existing assets and open the way for future IIoT use cases.
