Abstract

use the Siemens S7 connector when you want to configure FairCom Edge to gather tags periodically from Siemens PLCs and devices

Use the Siemens S7 connector when you want to configure FairCom Edge to gather tags periodically from Siemens PLCs and devices. The connector converts the binary data into a JSON document, inserts it into an integration table of your choice, and can automatically send it to MQTT subscribers.

Note

A tag is named data, such as a temperature with a value of 70 . In JSON, a tag is a JSON property, such as "temperature": 70. In a SQL table, a tag is a data field, such as a field named temperature with a value of 70.

The FairCom Edge Siemens S7 service is included in the FairCom jsonAction API.
