HART Multiplexer Software  smartlink SW-HT from Softing Industrial Now Supports Siemens Controllers

The HART multiplexer software smartLink SW-HT from Softing Industrial, for accessing configuration and diagnostic data, now supports ET200 remote IOs from Siemens and the FDT DTM interface.

smartLink SW-HT is a Docker container-based software application. It allows easy and fast access to HART devices connected to remote I/Os that can be reached via Ethernet. No additional hardware is required for this. As the only solution available on the market, smartLink SW-HT so far enabled the use of remote I/Os from Allen-Bradley, Schneider Electric and R. Stahl. The current version 1.30 now also supports ET200 remote IOs from Siemens and the FDT DTM interface.

Configuration and diagnostic data are accessed via Emerson’s AMS Device Manager or other HART IP-enabled Plant Asset Management applications. smartLink SW-HT provides an Ethernet connection for tunneling the HART commands to the remote IOs. On the field side, smartLink SW-HT is low-risk and easy to integrate. This is even possible during operation and does not require a plant shutdown. The application thus makes it easy for users to implement open, standards-based, and scalable system architectures and integrate connectivity into edge solutions managed by IT.

At Hannover Messe, April 17 to 21st, 2023 Softing Industrial will present smartLink SW-HT in hall 015, booth F48.

New Functionalities of Edge Products from Softing Industrial Facilitate Integration into IT Solutions

The Docker-based software modules of Softing’s edgeConnector edge product family provide access to process data in SIMATIC S7, SINUMERIK 840D and Modbus TCP controllers. The edgeAggregator, which is also Docker-based, provides an OPC UA data integration layer in conjunction with a Docker-based IoT edge solution. This allows various OPC UA servers of the automation level to be grouped together with their associated address spaces. The aggregated data can then be made available to IT applications via a consistent OPC UA interface.
