Softing has extended its tManager connectivity for Rockwell PLCs by adding a connector to PostgreSQL databases said to provide easy, secure, and robust production monitoring, recipe downloading, high-speed sorting and industrial analytics at scale.

The Rockwell connector module inserts into the ControlLogix or CompactLogix PLC chassis.

The PLC module enables bi-directional data movement between the PLC and databases or cloud — no server, no coding and no protocol translation required, the company says.

The connectivity is said to simplify access to plant-floor data for production monitoring, analytics, dashboards, recipe downloads, high-speed sorting, and key performance indicators.
