Press release from: Softing Industrial Automation GmbH

Haar, May, 13, 2015 – The new version of Softing's dataFEED OPC Suite supports the direct import of symbols from Siemens TIA Portal projects.
The new dataFEED Exporter tool, which is now part of Softing's dataFEED OPC Suite (V 4.03) allows importing symbols from Siemens TIA Portal projects (version 13 or 13 SP1) for a direct OPC Namespace configuration. The OPC Client applications receive the information for symbolic addressing from the dataFEED OPC Suite’s integrated OPC- or OPC UA Server and can use the symbolic names to access the data items of the respective data blocks. This approach overcomes the time-consuming manual configuration of data items and results in significant time- and cost savings for the user. The dataFEED Exporter supports both newer types of Siemens controllers like SIMATIC S7-1200 and -1500 as well as the older Siemens controller types SIMATIC S7-300 or -400 and is now available from Softing.

Softing‘s dataFEED OPC Suite combines OPC Server and OPC Middleware functionality into one compact software solution. The integrated OPC UA Server allows the simple integration of legacy and new controllers into “Industrie 4.0”* solutions. Components without OPC UA Server, like for example Siemens S5 controllers, can thus be easily integrated into OPC UA Client applications. The state-of-the-art graphical user interface with intelligent, practice-oriented default settings and intuitive user guidance is designed to make it exceptionally easy for plant manufacturers and maintenance engineers to quickly configure OPC communications. The highly scalable dataFEED OPC Suite provides users with the flexibility to pick and choose only those components that perfectly fit the application requirements.
