ip4Cloud/SEC3PB collects data from Profibus, by listening-in without directly interfering with or disrupting communication, and enables the transmission of obtained data to (a) cloud services, (b) databases and (c) SCADA systems over a wide range of industrial protocols.
Built-in cloud connectivity
Transmit industrial data to the cloud via integrated interfaces.
- Microsoft Azure Cloud (MQTT/MSSQL/Cosmos DB)
- Amazon AWS Cloud (MQTT/MongoDB)
Connect industrial data with your IT applications via integrated database interfaces
No change to the PLC
Connecting SEC3PB to the Profibus network does not require any change in the configuration of bus devices (PLC, bus terminals, etc.) and has no influence on the bus cycle. Feeding data to the bus is already physically prevented.
As a result, data can be extracted from critical processes without any reaction and be forwarded for processing in IoT or IT applications, cloud services, etc. without the risk of production downtime.
SEC3PB is connected to Profibus either electrically, by extending the existing bus with an additional cable segment, or even more simply by an optical link (OLM).
No alterations to the configuration of vital process components like the central PLC, subordinate IO terminals and other bus components are necessary. SEC3PB's setup can be performed simultaneously to the running process without any considerations.
ip4Cloud/SEC3PB is available in conjunction with the hardware model SEC3PB.
