What’s new in HiveMQ Edge 2024.1

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.

Rockwell Allen-Bradley Ethernet/IP Protocol Adapter

Protocol adapters enable conversion from common industrial PLC data protocols and other mediums, such as Siemens S7 or OPC-UA, 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 Rockwell Allen-Bradley Ethernet/IP to our catalog of adapters in HiveMQ Edge.

How it works

You can find the Ethernet/IP adapter on the Protocols Adapter page. The adapter is designed to help you connect data from Rockwell’s Allen-Bradley Ethernet/IP. To establish a connection, you need to provide details of the device’s unique identifier, port number and host address. Then associate any specific Ethernet/IP tags and data types to the destination MQTT topic.

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 client devices communicating with Ethernet/IP 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.
