Capture PROFIBUS data by eavesdropping and transmit it to Cloud/IT or SCADA services
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.
Secure access to all administrative services (HTTPS, SSH, SFTP)
Role-based access protection with login and password
User administration for local users
Central user administration via Active Directory (LDAP) and/or RADIUS
Crypto Store for certificate management
Creation of self-signed certificates and Certificate Signing Requests (CSRs)
Import and export of certificates
Configuration of VPN tunnels (OpenVPN and IPsec)
Safeguarded real-time Linux operating system
Assigning multiple IP addresses to one physical Ethernet interface
Network management using an integrated SNMP agent
NTP based clock synchronization
The integrated web server allows configuration and maintenance to be carried out easily, using just a web browser. The most important industrial communication protocols are supported for simple integration. In addition, templates are provided for further simplification.
Central access to all settings and services is provided and all important files/updates are imported via the web interface:
Firmware (application and operating system)
Configuration data using Excel spreadsheet (signal table)
X. 509 certificates
All data is broken down into separate information (single indications, measured values, counter values, etc.) and processed accordingly. A quality identifier and - if necessary - a time stamp can be associated with each information item.
Namespace and data model can be changed as desired.
Powerful functions for data processing such as type conversion, scaling, grouping, etc.
Data reduction / regulation of bandwidth required on secondary side via update intervals, threshold values, old/new comparison, collective messages, selection of data points, etc.
