To ensure high plant availability, the devices are connected with each other in an MRP ring (Media Redundancy Protocol). As a result, the remaining devices are still accessible in the event of a device or line failure.
The PRONETA Professional User Manual contains all information regarding the setup, operation and use of the licensed PRONETA Professional V1.1 software.
RUGGEDCOM ROX v2.12 or higher is required.This example demonstrates how to use BGP route reflection to advertise VPNv4 routes between Provider Edge (PE) devices inside a provider network. This particular topology is complicated by the fact that VPNv4 routes to the Customer Edge (CE) devices are within VRFs that are not known to the global VRF shared by each PE device.
The SIMATIC NET OPC server provides an OPC COM server and an OPC UA server for standardized access to the SIMATIC NET industrial communications networks.
The “Sample Library for Instructions” offers you a selection of different examples of how the instructions can be used in TIA Portal STEP 7.
The videos show you the installation and setup of a SINEMA Remote Connect server and client.
To protect a machine efficiently against mechanical damage during operation and detect such damages at an early stage, the machine has to be monitored permanently.
This video shows you the assembly of an 8-wire IE FC TP line with the new IE RJ45 Plug 4x2 connector.
The Service Bridge is a specially configured switch that allows dedicated temporary access from the plant bus to the fieldbus, while ensuring the logical separation between the fieldbuses. In this entry, you will find the instructions for configuring a SCALANCE XC-200 switch as Service Bridge as well as the prepared configuration files.
To make diagnostic in automation technology, there are numerous different procedures. This document gives you an overview of the options available for diagnosing a SIMATIC controller or a SCALANCE network device, networks and communication.
Curated video collection on industrial communication, identification and localization.
The SINEC NMS software is a network monitoring tool with diverse features and comprehensive functions. This document supports first-time users and familiarizes them with the basic functions and setting options of SINEC NMS.
Many large and mid-size companies face the challenge of building a standardized network for their production plants that developed over time. This article demonstrates a combined SCALANCE/HPE ARUBA/Palo Alto solution which is based on a logical separation of IT and OT using segmentation and a central firewall.
Our Cybersecurity Program outlined in this document encompasses all relevant processes and information. Each section of the document summarizes the main aspects of each area, and collectively form the Cybersecurity Program.
SIMATIC S7 stations also allow the use of email as the default mechanism for transmitting error conditions or warnings from industrial plants to a control center or operating staff.
MindSphere is the cloud-based, open IoT operating system from Siemens. Using the "MindConnect IoT Extension" upgrade, it is possible to connect devices to MindSphere over MQTT.
How to program web pages, to control your plant
Cloud computing is an important prerequisite for exploiting the benefits of digitization in the industry. With the SIMATIC CloudConnect 7 Industrial IoT Gateways, existing systems can also be easily connected to a wide variety of cloud platforms that support the standardized MQTT protocol, such as MindSphere.
The “Message Queue Telemetry Transport” is a simple protocol on TCP/IP level. It is suitable for messaging between devices with minimum functionality and for transmission via unreliable networks.
The File Transfer Protocol (FTP) is one of the classic, standardized options of exchanging data with PCs or any heterogeneous computer system. This entry shows how FTP communication is realized in a SIMATIC S7-300/400 station. ...
