Softing Industrial – edgeGate – IoT gateway

Edge Gateway for IT/OT Coupling of Siemens and Modbus Controllers to IoT Solutions

  • edgeGate offers bidirectional data exchange between industrial networks and IT applications locally and in the cloud. It connects up to five Siemens and Modbus TCP controllers to superimposed systems via the OPC UA and MQTT interfaces. It supports the use of a large number of different cloud providers. Thanks to its conformity with the OPC UA standard, its simple configuration and its security functions, the gateway is particularly suitable for small network solutions that can be expanded over time.edgeGate offers particularly deep Microsoft Azure Cloud integration. For this purpose, the applications IoT Edge OPC Publisher and IoT Edge OPC Proxy provided by Microsoft have been implemented. For parameter setting a graphical user interface is provided. The result is a simple connection to Azure IoT Hub, Azure IoT Edge, Azure IoT Central or Azure IoT Connected Factory.Visit Softing
