Industrial IoT Gateways SIMATIC CloudConnect 7

Smartly connecting existing plants

Cloud applications are an important prerequisite for utilizing the benefits of digitalization in an industrial setting. With the Industrial IoT Gateways SIMATIC CloudConnect 7, even existing plants can be easily connected to a wide variety of cloud platforms that support the standardized MQTT protocol, such as to the MindSphere.


Connection to cloud systems via Industrial Ethernet interface
The Industrial IoT Gateway SIMATIC CC712 allows the connection of one SIMATIC S7-300 or S7-400 via Industrial Ethernet by means of S7 protocol.


Connection to cloud systems via Industrial Ethernet or PROFIBUS/MPI interface
The Industrial IoT Gateway SIMATIC CC716 supports the connection of up to seven SIMATIC S7 controllers via Industrial Ethernet or PROFIBUS/MPI interface.

Communications processors

Communication for SIMATIC – best connections, thanks to the right CPs

Communications processors (CPs) for the digital factory: Digitalization is picking up speed. More and more devices and components across the entire value chain are generating important data – data that has to be quickly, efficiently, and securely transported, analyzed, and utilized for Industrie 4.0 and the Digital Enterprise. Achieving this requires high-performance industrial communication networks – and system interfaces. With SIMATIC NET, you benefit from a comprehensive portfolio of communications processors and PC software, as well as the extensive expertise of Siemens, the leading network provider. We’ll help you to perform your automation tasks quickly, dynamically, and economically.
