SNMP OPC Server

 

The SNMP OPC server software provides diagnostic and configuration functions for all SNMP devices. The OPC server uses the SNMP protocol to perform data exchange with SNMP devices. All information can be integrated in OPC-compatible systems, such as the WinCC HMI system. This enables process and network diagnostics to be combined in the HMI system.

Details

  • Configuring in 6 languages
    English, German, French, Italian, Spanish, Chinese

  • Integrated into STEP 7
    Configuration of the OPC server is integrated in the STEP 7 Hardware Configuration application. Already configured S7 modules from the STEP 7 project can be transferred directly. As an alternative to STEP 7, the NCM PC (included on the SIMATIC NET CD) can also be used to perform the configuration.

  • Fast online configuring through "Autodiscovery"
    In STEP7 V5.3+SP3 and higher, all Ethernet devices can be detected by means of their IP address and/or the SNMP protocol (SNMP V1) and transferred to the configuration. The SIMATIC NET SNMP OPC server also provides detection of PROFINET devices using the DCP protocol.

  • Protocols and interfaces
    The data from any SNMP devices (SNMP V1) is presented at the OPC interfaces. The SIEMENS products with SNMP functionality listed below have been tested explicitly:
    SCALANCE X, W, OSM, ESM
    WinAC/LC with SIMATIC NET CP
    SIMATIC S7 300/400 CPs and CPUs
    PROFINET devices, such as ET200 S

  • OPC server
    Configuration of the OPC server is integrated in the STEP 7 Hardware Configuration application. Already configured S7 modules from the STEP 7 project can be transferred directly. As an alternative to STEP 7, the NCM PC (included on the SIMATIC NET CD) can also be used to perform the configuration.

  • OPC interface (client/server)
    OPC DA
    OPC A&E
    OPC XML-DA

  • Clients independent of the operating system
    Allows non-Windows OPC clients to be connected

  • Firewall-friendly
    Data can also be exchanged over the Internet

  • Supported HMI and process control systems
    SIMATIC HMI systems
    - WinCC (V5.x and higher)
    - WinCC flexible
    - Protool Pro RT

  • SIMATIC PCS7 Process Control System
    PCS7 (V6.0 +SP3 and higher)
    When PCS7 applications are used, the SNMP variables and message texts can be automatically generated with the SNMP Mapper (component of STEP7) in WinCC.

  • SIMATIC Asset Management
    With SIMATIC, maintenance and diagnostics statuses of the hardware components (assets) in use are displayed in a faceplate with different views of the respective components. The information for PCs and Ethernet network components is provided via the SNMP OPC server. (PCS 7 Maintenance)

  • SIMATIC Maintenance Station
    The Maintenance Station visualizes maintenance information from all automation systems of a plant including the network. The information for PCs and Ethernet network components is provided via the SNMP OPC server. (SIMATIC Maintenance)

  • Any non-Siemens HMI systems with OPC clients for
    - Data Access (OPC DA)
    - Alarm and Events (OPC A&E)
    - XML Data Access (OPC XML DA)

  • Operating systems
    Configuring and runtime software: Microsoft NT, 2000, XP and 2003 Server
