[MB] DataSuite News 02/22: Major update
something is happening with the DataSuite: We have developed many new functions for you. Read in this newsletter which features have been added. The best thing about it: Updates are always free of charge. So try them out right away!
Deliver machine data as a web page
HTML files can be created with DataSuite for a long time. Now DataSuite can also deliver them directly as a web server. This allows you to easily display machine data and statistics on other PCs, tablets or cell phones.
REST API for connecting third-party systems
Use machine data in other applications
It has never been easier to use PLC data in your own applications. With the new update, external applications – whether self-programmed or purchased – can access and use machine and plant data.

Bigger and smaller comparison for triggers
Simply send a mail/Excel file/etc. when a variable changes, that was already possible before. Now you can alternatively configure a comparison as a trigger condition. Of course including debouncing and other settings of a professional solution. Learn how you can reduce downtime with this feature in our new tech blog.
Beckhoff controllers officially supported
Thanks to OPC UA, Beckhoff controllers are now officially supported by DataSuite. In addition to Beckhoff, IBH Link UA is now also supported with minor restrictions.
Read Only Mode for PLC connections
As a further safety feature, we have added a read-only mode that can be activated. This ensures under all circumstances that no data is changed in the PLC.

When retrofit causes problems: A solution for legacy controllers
S7 300 and 400 PLC time correction via trigger
You know the problem for sure: An old S7 300 PLC is connected and the time stamps are no longer correct. With the new TimeMaster function in the DataSuite you can set the internal time of old 300s and 400s with a trigger to the PC time, e.g. every day at 24 o’clock.
Retrofitting – Old machines with new possibilities
The useful life of solid machine technology is increased by retrofitting. Old machines and new possibilities.
