This week Opto 22 is exhibiting at the Open IoT Summit in Portland, Oregon. The IoT Summit is a Linux Foundation event, packed with a ton of technology workshops and product demos.

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.

Must-have cables and adapters to maximize OEE & connect OT to IT

Posted by Matt Newton on Feb 16, 2017 8:00:00 AM

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.

Build Your IIoT Application with Dell and Opto 22

Posted by Matt Newton on Feb 14, 2017 8:00:00 AM

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.

OptoNews: New case study - University's power comes from the sun

Posted by Jean Femia on Feb 1, 2017 3:51:19 PM

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.

Top 5 Industrial Applications For Drones

Posted by Matt Newton on Jan 26, 2017 1:25:48 PM

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.
