CONNECTIVITY PORTFOLIO | what is SICK SOPAS?
The SOPAS protocol is used to communicate with sensor devices from SICK AG.
The protocol used to communicate with SICK sensors is the SOPAS command language which utilizes command strings (telegrams) and comes in two protocol formats: CoLa A (Command Language A) with ASCII telegram format, and CoLa B with binary telegram format.
Connectware can communicate with any SICK device which supports SOPAS. The interface allows users to subscribe to events, to call methods on the device or to read or write variables and configurations. Information about which actions can be carried out with a specific device can be retrieved from the telegram listing of the device documentation.
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.
