Connecting Siemens S7 1200 PLC with Mindsphere

Experimenter

I want to know if I can connect S71200 PLC directly with Mindsphere without the use of IOT2040?

I have:

1) S71200, Version 3.0.2

2) TIA Portal V15

3) MindAccess DevOps Plan - Developer S

 

If the connection is not possible, then what is the alternate other than IOT2040? can the solution be Raspberry Pi between S71200 and Mindsphere?

 

Thank You.

Hello Gargi_Arya,

 

as far as I know, it's not possible to connect the S7 1200 directly to MindSphere. The underlying problem is that the S7 1200 does not support encrypted network connections (HTTPS), which is required to connect to MindSphere.

 

You can use a Raspberry PI, but there is no out of the box solution available. So you would have to write a small program that communicates with the S7 (via S7 Communication) and sends then sends the data to MindSphere.
