SIMATIC CC712

Industrial IoT Gateway SIMATIC CC712

The SIMATIC CC712 variant allows the connection of one SIMATIC S7-300 or S7-400 via Industrial Ethernet by means of S7 protocol.

SIMATIC CC716

Industrial IoT Gateway SIMATIC CC716

The SIMATIC CC716 variant supports the connection of up to seven SIMATIC S7 controllers via Industrial Ethernet or PROFIBUS/MPI interface.

SIMATIC CloudConnect 7

Simple data transfer to all common cloud platforms

The Industrial IoT Gateway SIMATIC CloudConnect 7 makes it possible to read data easily and reliably from S7-based devices and transfers them via the standardized MQTT protocol (according to OASIS-Standard V3.1/3.1.1) to different Cloud platforms like MindSphere, Microsoft Azure or IBM Cloud. The data management for existing S7 controllers can continue to be imported for quick and easy configuration.

The connection to cloud systems via Internet or mobile communication can either be made via an existing network infrastructure or can be directly realized through the combination with the industrial routers SCALANCE M.

 

In addition, the data read from lower-level S7 stations by means of SIMATIC CloudConnect 7 can be made available as OPC UA variables (server). This enables standardized data exchange, for example with MES systems or HMI and third-party controllers.
