Easy import of symbols from TIA Portal

07 July 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 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 Suiteā€™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 is said to overcome the need for 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.

The dataFEED OPC Suite combines OPC Server and OPC Middleware functionality into one compact software solution. The integrated OPC UA Server enables integration of legacy and new controllers into industry 4.0 solutions. Components without OPC UA Server can therefor be easily integrated into OPC UA Client applications. The scalable solution provides users with the flexibility to pick and choose only those components that perfectly fit the application requirements.
