The IBHsoftec GmbH is specialized in development and production of automation solutions for the industry. Primary technology field of the IBHsoftec GmbH is the PLC technology, whereby the main field is PLC programming systems and SoftPLC solutions.
In this environment all substantial developments of the past years are settled.
The spectrum reaches from OPC UA Server, over SoftPLC solutions, debuggers and simulators, from comfortable programming systems for Step®5 and Step7 PLCs, up to special network solutions for the linkage of PC and PLC components. With the experience of over 30 years, the spectrum grows continuously. The proximity to the market and detailed knowledge of the application fields of our customers always lead to new, innovative products. The majority of the solutions present on the market today are younger than five years.
The IBH link S5++ is a cost-efficient alternative solution for conventional PLC-PC-connections via Ethernet. If a PLC has to be connected via Ethernet with a PC, usually a CP communication processor needs to be applied to the PLCs rack. Due to the increasing integration in automation technology, more than ever a connection from a PLC to a PC is required. In general, the communication processors (e.g. CPs from Siemens, or Ethernet components from other manufacturers) are used for the connection to the PLC.
The IBH Link UA is an OPC UA Server/Client module with integrated firewall for the SIMATIC S5, S7-200, S7-300, S7-400, S7-1200, S7-1500 and LOGO! (Ethernet versions) PLC. It is a compact unit for DIN rail mount with four Ethernet ports and a 24V power supply.
If a Siemens PLC has to be connected with a PC via Ethernet, the normal way is to take a CP / Communication processor. IBHsoftec has a more flexible solution: IBH Link S7++. It is a cost efficient Ethernet-PROFIBUS-Gateway for programming, drive configuration, for communication between PC and Siemens PLCs, inter-PLC communication andFDT applications.
