TF6720 | TC3 IoT Data Agent

The TC3 IoT Data Agent provides IoT communication functions bi-directional in the form of a gateway application that can be configured and operated independently from the TwinCAT real-time environment.

The data agent picks up configured process data and transmits it to a specific communication or data service in the Microsoft Azure or Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud, or it sends the process data to an MQTT or AMQP message broker. To pick up the process data, both TwinCAT ADS and the OPC UA IEC standard with their security mechanisms are available. This ensures data protection down to the controller or the respective end device.

To reduce the amount of traffic and associated costs, the data agent supports advanced sampling mechanisms, such as on-data-change transmissions.

If the connection is interrupted, buffering algorithms are available to prevent the loss of data. The entire parameterisation of the data agent can be done via a graphical editor. This makes it easy to use and reduces set-up times when commissioning the system.
