We added a special agent {agent_siemens_plc} which is using SNAP7 to fetch data from a Siemens PLC (SPS) device. You can use it do read memory areas from the agent, parse and interpret them, for example you can configure to read and integer from memory location X and handle it as temperature value in celsius.

For the moment we added a temperature check, others will follow.
