Notes on transfer time
Requirements for the transfer (Cloud)
The following conditions must be met to transfer a value:
• The data point is assigned to a topic in the configuration.
• At least one trigger condition is met.
Time of the data transfer and quantity of the transmitted data
Triggering the data transfer is different for the two target systems:
The transfer time is controlled via trigger, refer to the section Data points (Page 78).
You specify the time when the values of data points are transferred to the broker for each
data point with the "Trigger".
The following data are transferred together to the broker as soon as the value of a data
point is pending for transfer:
– AWS / Azure / IBM Cloud
– MindConnect IoT Extension / Other Cloud
● OPC UA
The OPC UA server executes the read and write jobs of the OPC UA clients.
No additional settings can be made for the server.
Data point configuration
In this tab, you specify the data points as data sources for each station for transfer.
In addition, you can export the tag information of the CPU via a source file from STEP 7 for
S7 stations and import it as basis for the data point configuration, see Import tags (Page 84).
