La passerelle echocollect -e

La passerelle Echocollect est une passerelle dédiée à l’intégration des données “Process Data” vers des systèmes de hauts niveaux ou de solutions IoT.


La passerelle echocollect -e est une passerelle multi protocoles fournissant des solutions de managment “Process Data”. Elle offre des connexions “temps réel” entre PLC et bases de données,  OPC UA et OPC Classic connectivité. Ses fonctionnalités inclues à la fois le log de données locales et une intégration directe de données d’applications Cloud IoT via MQTT

Présentation Echocollect  ( PDF )

Integration of Existing Systems in New Quality Assurance Systems

  • Independent real-time collection of manufacturing, process or quality data directly from programmable logic controllers (PLC) and delivery to higher-level management systems, such as ERP or MES system
  • Recipe manager functionality for writing data blocks to PLCs
  • Direct connectivity via SQL database protocols, platform independent OPC UA technology or MQTT Publisher functionality
  • Support of more than 50 PLC types addressable via Ethernet

Excellent Data and Network Security

  • Buffering of arriving data and addition of time stamps in case of broken connections, automatic forwarding once connection has been reestablished
  • Option for parallel data logging on SD card for traceability reasons
  • Physical network separation between production systems and commercial IT networks
  • State-of-the-art OPC UA security: Optional encryption of transmitted data and authentication via certificates

Lowered IT Maintenance Costs and Investment Protection

  • echocollect as standard component, addition of extra functionality without modifying existing systems
  • No need for additional PC requiring software updates and administration
  • Working for years once configured – untouched, without updates and with zero maintenance costs
  • Plug-and-go replacement, if necessary, using configuration stored on SD card
  • Very easy configuration by straightforward project import without requiring PLC modifications and programming skills

Easy Live Data Visualization

  • Native web technology for easy and cost-efficient visualization of process, manufacturing and quality data using standard web browser without any plug-ins
  • No need for OPC Server or complex SCADA system
  • Scalable, resolution-independent vector graphics for consistent display of data on wide variety of network enabled devices like desktop PCs, laptops, smart phones, tablet PCs or industrial control panels
Ethernet Addressable Controllers Siemens SIMATIC S7 and S5, controllers with Modbus TCP (Wago, Beckhoff, Phoenix Contact, Schneider Electric, etc.), Mitsubishi (Melsec-Q), etc.

Which cloud platforms are supported?

We support with all Softing gateways (echocollect, uaGate, edgeGate) the Microsoft Azure Cloud, Amazon AWS Cloud, IBM Bluemix Cloud and other cloud providers, which are using MQTT for telemetry data.

What is the size of the Store & Forward queue on the echocollect?

The S&F queue for MQTT is unlimited (except the size of the sd-card). The echo buffers in the ram, and after it collects a bunch of messages, they were copied to the sd-card. To use the S&F feature, QoS 1 or QoS 2 must be used.

Which SD-card sizes are supported?

SD: from 8 MB till 2 GB
SDHC: from 4 GB till 32 GB
(SDXC is not supported)

Which OS is used in the echo devices?

Custom hardened operating system based on Linux Kernel

What happens when the SD-card is full?

When enabled, the oldest data will be rewritten by the latest, in a circular buffer manner.

Which databases are supported by echocollect?

These databases are tested regularly by our QS department for compatibility with echocollect. Other versions might be compatible as well, but they were not fully tested.
