Interfaces

b.data is a WinCC Premium AddOn and provides a depth of integration into WinCC. An automatic configuration comparison creates data points intended for the transfer into b.data and thus facilitates efficient engineering.

In addition to the standardized interfaces to the Siemens products (WinCC, PCS7, Sicam230 etc.), b.data supports the current standards to include existing source systems.

  • OPC and Profinet for recording energy and operating values from the field level,

  • to measurement value archives from SCADA and control systems via ODBC, or OPC HDA,

  • to a company file system for the import/export of ASCII data (CSV, XML, L-PEX etc.),

  • to databases of maintenance, production planning and ERP systems,

  • to data exchange with officials and partners of the energy industry (MSCONS, KISS A),

  • to cross-company manual entry of read measurement and meter values in the b.data user system,

  • and to the structured export of data for the reporting system, for example SAP.
