The Docker-based software modules of Softing's Edge Connector product family provide access to process data in Simatic S7, Sinumerik 840D and Modbus TCP controllers.

Version 3.50 of Edge Connector Siemens, Edge Connector 804D and Edge Connector Modbus is now compatible with the 64-bit version of ARM (Advanced Risc Machines) processors. This extends the application possibilities to devices like Raspberry Pi, Cisco IR1101, Orange Pi 5 or RevPi Connect.

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