OPC UA tunnel increases security for OPC Classic communication

17 October 2023

The dataFEED OPC UA Tunnel is a new component of Softing Industrial's dataFEED OPC Suite. It is said to enable secure access to OPC Classic servers across network boundaries and firewalls. A DCOM configuration is no longer required.

Configuration of the two tunnel ends is quick and easy using Export/Import. The security mechanisms of the OPC UA standard, which include authentication of users by means of certificates as well as signing and encryption of data, ensure maximum protection. The suite currently supports up to 50 OPC UA tunnel connections.

Version 5.30 dataFEED OPC Suite offers the possibility to store process data in an InfluxDB for subsequent processing and analysis. 

dataFEED OPC Suite Extended is a complete package for OPC communication and cloud connectivity, providing access to the controllers of many manufacturers and to IoT devices. The suite acts as a gateway between the two OPC standards, allowing the integration of existing OPC Classic components and applications into Industry 4.0 OPC UA solutions.
