Functions at a glance

DOCUMENTATION & RECIPE MANAGEMENT

Read and write real Excel files

Exchanging data between Excel files (XLSX, XSLSM) and a Siemens S7 PLC has never been easier. Thanks to our new TIA source import, it’s easier than ever before.

NEW FILE EXPORT

Create PDF and HTML files with the S7

Easily create PDF documents or HTML files from your PLC data and determine how they should look.

Deliver maschine data as website + external interface

Integrated webserver with REST-API

You have been able to create HTML files with DataSuite for some time. Now DataSuite can also deliver them directly as a web server in the network via web page. This allows you to display machine data and statistics easily on other PCs, tablets or mobile phones.

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.

Questions?

In a live online demonstration, we will go into detail about the individual functions and answer any questions you may have. Together we will find out whether DataSuite 3 is suitable for your needs.

NEW SECURITY

OPC-UA for secure data communication

With OPC-UA you can increase your security in the network by encryption and authentication. Another advantage of OPC-UA: Simply use optimized blocks from Siemens S7 controllers or connect controllers from other manufacturers.

"By integrating OPC-UA, encrypted data connections to machines can now also be established. We are thus making an important contribution to IT security in production."

NEW MACHINE DATA by MAIL

Send e-mails and SMS

Your machine has a standstill or maintenance is due? Monitor the plant status by your Siemens S7 PLC sending an e-mail or SMS to you. In the e-mail attachment you can even send an Excel document with PLC data.

"The e-mail function works great. For now we use it to send production data to ourselves at the end of shifts; paperless."

NEW DATABASE CONNECTION FOR MACHINES

Use SQL databases easily

With DataSuite, you can also use SQL databases with the S7. Write production data or read production orders and parts lists. The possibilities are manifold. The best thing about it: you don’t need VBA! Everything is intuitive and simple.

Notes on data protection(Required)

DataSuite is the software for capturing and processing machine data and plant data.

It can be used in a variety of ways and can replace traditional machine data collection software. It can also be used to connect SQL databases or to create PDF or Excel documents with machine data.

The possibilities of DataSuite are as diverse and individual as your applications.

With the DataSuite software, you can also print out diagrams and test reports in tabular form with your Siemens S7 PLC or save them as a file.

The highlight: You can also load or write data and files from the PC to your machine control (PLC/S7). These can be, for example, Excel files with recipes for your production or order data from your ERP system, e.g. SAP.
