ARM compatibility expands the application possibilities

24-07-2023 | Softing | Industrial

The new version 3.50 of Softing Industrial's edgeConnector products is now compatible with ARM processors. This greatly extends the application possibilities.

The Docker-based software modules of the product family supply access to process data in SIMATIC S7, SINUMERIK 840D and Modbus TCP controllers.

Version 3.50 of edgeConnector Siemens, edgeConnector 804D and edgeConnector Modbus is now compatible with the 64-bit version of ARM processors. This extends the application options to devices like Raspberry Pi, Cisco IR1101, Orange Pi 5 or RevPi Connect.

By using container technology, these products are very quickly ready for use. They are operated on standard hardware and can be readily administered centrally. This provides users a simple and secure way to combine data from production into innovative and flexible Industrial IoT solutions. All these products support state-of-the-art security standards such as SSL/TLS, X.509 certificates, authentication, and data encryption. They can be readily configured locally through an integrated web interface or managed remotely via a REST API. The individual edgeConnector products are obtainable for download and free trial from online directories.
