The Siemens TCP/IP Ethernet driver enables ThingWorx Kepware Edge to connect to Siemens S7-200, S7-300, S7-400, S7-1200, and S7-1500 PLCs over Ethernet. By converting from the Siemens Industrial Ethernet protocol to more secure and efficient protocols directly at the edge, users can secure communications and reduce costly network traffic.
The ThingWorx Kepware Edge Siemens TCP/IP Ethernet driver includes different features and functionality from the KEPServerEX Siemens TCP/IP Ethernet driver, but offers the quality, reliability, and security of all Kepware products. Users can rely on the Siemens TCP/IP Ethernet driver built into ThingWorx Kepware Edge without fear of communication-related downtime.
The Siemens TCP/IP Ethernet driver also provides access to Siemens S7-200, S7-300, S7-400, S7-1200, and S7-1500 PLCs for ThingWorx. Users of ThingWorx, the leading Industrial IoT platform, can now connect to these devices in a Linux environment using ThingWorx Kepware Edge.
The TIA Portal Exporter Utility enables users with Siemens S7-300, S7-400, S7-1200 or S7-1500 controllers programmed with Siemens TIA Portal to automatically generate the specific tags they need for their ThingWorx Kepware Edge projects. Offered at no additional cost as a standalone installation, it provides compatibility with TIA Portal V13 SP1, V13 SP2, V14, V14 SP1 and V15.
The TIA Portal Exporter Utility features the ability to:
