DataSuite 3 functions and features explained in detail

PC/VM installations
We offer 2 types of licenses:
1. Hardware bound activation codes
You can activate this license on a PC or Virtual Machine (VM). The “Basic” and “Classic” licenses include one activation each, “Standard” and “Pro” include 2 activations each. Once activated, a license can be unlocked by our support team for a fee if, for example, the activated PC is defective.
2. Floating licenses with USB dongle
This license is not bound to a PC, but to a USB dongle. As long as the dongle is plugged in, you can use DataSuite. So you can use your license with it on several PCs, but not at the same time.

PLC connections
Number of PLC connections per installation. Example: You have purchased a standard license. This includes 2 installations with 2 PLC connections each.

Number of variables/items
There is no limit to the number of PLC variables that can be used in DataSuite.

S7 communication (Put/Get)
Connection to a Siemens S7 PLC via Ethernet. All Siemens S7 PLCs with Profinet connection are supported. Depending on model and firmware you have to activate the Put/Get communication in the PLC configuration to use this communication way. At this kind of PLC communication only not optimized data blocks can be read. Basically only data blocks are supported, but flags, I/Os, etc. can be mirrored to DBs by you in the PLC program, so that these data are also accessible. The communication is not encrypted. If you need optimized blocks or encrypted communication, you should use OPC UA communication.

Import TIA Portal variables
In TIA Portal you can export the data blocks to be used by the DataSuite into a file. This can be easily and comfortably read in by the DataSuite. Alternatively or additionally you can add addresses and DBs manually to the DataSuite configuration. With an OPC UA connection, the data blocks are imported directly from the PLC.

Row, cell, block trigger
You have 3 possibilities how to write data into table oriented files, e.g. an Excel file: Row by row, cell by cell or as a block. See the manual for more details.

Read file name from PLC
There are several ways to determine the name of a log or recipe file. One is to read the name completely or partially from the PLC. Further possibilities can be found in the manual.

Read/write CSV files
Read and write CSV files. Custom separators/delimiters can be set.

Individual file templates
By using templates, you can completely determine the appearance of the generated Excel files. You can include graphics/logos, charts, formulas, text formatting. This allows you to create visually appealing and feature-rich Excel files.

Copy/move/delete files
Trigger-based file operations allow flexible handling of created files. For example, you can move a line-by-line Excel file to another folder, e.g. named “Completed Reports”, after it has been completed. This is very handy when other systems like ERP monitor this directory to read in new files.

Read/write Excel files (xlsx)
Read and write real Excel files (xlsx/xlsm). No Excel installation is required. DataSuite can create and read these files itself. When writing, the Excel file must not be opened by another program.

SQL database
Read and write data to a SQL database, e.g. MS SQL Server

OPC-UA
An alternative to Put/Get communication. With OPC-UA PLC data can be transferred via an encrypted connection. Optimized data blocks from Siemens controllers can also be used. OPC-UA is manufacturer-independent, so that controllers from other manufacturers can also be connected in this way.

Send e-mail/SMS
Sending e-mails or SMS based on triggers. The contents of the messages can be freely defined. You can combine static texts with PLC variables. Example: “Warning: machine 5, error: temperature extruder too high, measured value: 137 degrees”.

PDF and HTML file export
Allows to save all Excel files created by DataSuite in PDF or HTML file format.

Print
Allows to print all Excel files created by DataSuite on a printer. It is also possible to print foreign Excel files.

Rest API
Programming interface that allows other programs to use DataSuite. This can be useful to easily access data from machines and plants.

Integrated web server
With the integrated web server, generated HTML files are made available on the network so that you can view the generated reports and reports on several PCs at the same time.
