CONNECTIVITY PORTFOLIO | What is Beckhoff ADS?
Automation Device Specification (ADS) is a device- and fieldbus-independent interface to devices manufactured by Beckhoff Automation. It functions as a transport layer within the TwinCAT system. This protocol was designed to enable data exchange between different software modules (e.g. the NC and the PLC).
Implementing this protocol with the Cybus Connectware enables seamless communication to ADS devices in the shopfloor. It also provides the user with the ability to create endpoints for reading and writing as well as to subscribe for changes on the data provided by them.
With Cybus Connectware, Data from Beckhoff PLCs can be made available on MQTT in JSON Format or OPC UA, normalized or enriched with meta data and forwarded to IT systems like databases, SCADA systems, dashboards, data lakes or IoT Platforms like Azure or AWS.
The leading factory data hub Connectware is suitable for the first steps of digitization up to holistic Smart Factory transformation. In addition to universal shop floor connectivity, Connectware creates a scalable data infrastructure for digital projects without limits. One single platform for all IIoT projects, independent of applications and vendors.
