We also exhibited at the IoT Summit last year. It’s a great chance to connect with the Linux developer community and get their perspective on things, since it’s so much different from what a typical industrial automation professional is exposed to.
Almost everyone in the industrial automation, process control, and factory automation industries is concerned with keeping their equipment up and running.
Overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) is a key metric for understanding how the factory is performing. And part of keeping things running is keeping things communicating.
Did you watch the Big Game on Sunday, February 5?
Not only was it a great game, with the outcome in doubt till a first-ever overtime settled it, but also... power for the Fox Sports television broadcast never failed.
Pretty important, right?
As the Internet of Things (IoT) gains momentum, this conference brings together system architects, firmware developers, software developers, and application developers.
Our developer.opto22.com site gets a lot of traffic from developers working with SNAP PACs, groov, Node-RED, and industrial I/O for Raspberry Pi.
Since all Opto 22 products are designed on open standards, you have a variety of ways to interact with them and integrate with other systems. The developer site helps you do that.
As noted in Opto 22’s recent edge computing technology primer, one of the key problems currently facing the IIoT is Internet bandwidth limitations. We’re talking about connecting billions of sensors to networks that were never designed to handle that kind of traffic.
I can remember the painful days of dial up Internet connectivity when millions of people started connecting their PCs to the Internet through tiny little phone lines, watching file transfers drag on and on for hours.
Although we may think of Middle Eastern countries as being oil-rich, that description doesn't always apply. The country of Jordan, for example, has typically imported 96% of its energy from neighboring countries.
But Jordan has plenty of sun, and the government is committed to investing heavily in renewable energy.
You'll find the answer in our new technical note, Communication Tools & Protocols for Opto 22 Products.
¿Cuál es la diferencia cuando se trata de la Internet de las cosas (IoT)?
El objetivo fundamental de la Internet de las cosas (IoT) es obtener y analizar datos de activos que antes estaban desconectados de la mayoría de las herramientas que procesan datos.
Drones are playing a key role in the Industrial Internet of Things. Not to mention the fact that they’re pretty much all the rage today with just about everyone.
I would hazard a guess that almost everyone you know knows someone who has one. They’re in all the stores at the mall, the military has fleets of them protecting the skies, and I can’t wait to see Amazon’s version dropping my packages off on my front doorstep.
