What’s new in HiveMQ Edge 2023.8

HiveMQ Edge is a gateway that utilizes an edge-optimized MQTT broker to connect multiple endpoints and streamline your operations seamlessly. By standardizing edge data and providing support for a diverse array of IT/OT connections, this software offers a scalable and flexible solution for directing data into your core infrastructure.

HiveMQ consistently incorporates user feedback to enhance their product and introduce new features.

Discover the latest release updates below.

Siemens S7 and Beckhoff ADS Protocol Adapters

Protocol adapters enable conversion from common industrial PLC data protocols and other mediums, such as HTTP, to MQTT. HiveMQ Edge can support multiple data type conversations to MQTT simultaneously in the form of configured connections.

We’re pleased to announce that we have added Siemens S7 and Beckhoff ADS to our catalog of adapters in HiveMQ Edge.

How it works

You can find the two latest adapters on the Protocols Adapter page. These adapters are designed to help you connect data from Siemens S7 or Beckhoff ADS. To establish a connection, you must provide some details, such as hostname information and the data to be collected via subscriptions. It’s worth noting that the input form for each protocol adapter may require slightly different information. For instance, the ADS adapter may have different details compared to the Siemens S7 adapter. The example below shows the necessary details for a Beckhoff ADS adapter.

How it helps

HiveMQ Edge features protocol adapters that facilitate the integration of OT and IT devices with MQTT as the standardized data transport protocol. With this release, HiveMQ Edge users who have Siemens S7 and Beckhoff ADS client devices can easily leverage MQTT for seamless data transfer. This feature allows for the conversion of data from these devices to MQTT, making it easier for businesses to integrate their diverse range of devices into their IoT ecosystem.

Additional Features and Improvements

In version 2023.7, we released the first version of the Event Logs feature. This feature provides valuable insights into the seamless operation of essential components. To help users get better context, Event Logs are now accessible with protocol adapters and bridges — all in the HiveMQ Edge Workspace.
