Siemens Iot2040 goes OPC UA
A microSD card with the OPC UA server / client with IBHsoftec firewall is now available for the Siemens Gateway IoT2040 (6ES7647-0AA00-1YA2). By simply plugging the microSD card pre-configured by IBHsoftec, the IoT2040 becomes an OPC UA server / client for Siemens PLCs. This solution inetgrates SIMATIC S5, S7-200, S7-300, S7-400, S7-1200, S7-1500 and Logo! (Ethernet versions) Controllers into the OPC UA world. It is an OPC UA Server/Client module with integrated firewall for the SIMATIC S5, S7-200, S7-300, S7-400, S7-1200, S7-1500 and LOGO! (Ethernet versions) PLC. It is a compact unit for DIN rail mount with four Ethernet ports and a 24V power supply.
IBHsoftec now supports the SIMATIC IOT2000 Input / Output Modules (5xDI 2xAI 2xDO) with its SD card version of the OPC UA server. The input / output modules can be easily activated via the Web configurator and are addressed by the integrated S7 SoftPLC. Thus the use of the IOT2040 for MES systems can also be used e.g. on old systems without the need of an external PLC to collect the data.
IBH Link UA certified from the OPC Foundation
The IBH Link UA has passed the compliance test of OPC Foundation and has been certified
IBH Link UA now available as a software version:
IBH Link UA now with S7 SoftPLC for data preprocessing
The IBH Link UA additional contains a SoftPLC. The SoftPLC is able to read and write variables from the OPC UA server. The integrated SoftPLC can be used for data preprocessing and supports the programming languages LAD, FBD, STL, SCL or S7-GRAPH.
