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.
New release adds Data Store device
With the new Data Store device in groov R3.3, you can put data into groov from anywhere—like a database, another device or system—and monitor or change it in your mobile operator interface.
- For example, your company’s SQL database could place production or maintenance data into a groov Data Store for managers or technicians to see in their interface.
- Think about how much computers have changed in the last 30 years.
- Think about the quantity of data that enterprise data centers (EDCs) process today.
- And think about how facility management priorities have changed to meet rising energy costs.
Now imagine what needs to be done to update a 30-year-old EDC.
This time we'll show you how you can use the REST API with a Microsoft® Access® database.
What does the new built-in RESTful API in Opto 22 SNAP PAC S-series and R-series programmable automation controllers mean to you?
It means you can use a variety of programming languages to easily access data in the PAC.
Have you wanted to share I/O point or variable data from your SNAP PAC controller with a Microsoft® Excel® spreadsheet or Access® database?
- Maybe you're tracking sales in a spreadsheet and want to adjust production to match projections.
- Maybe your PAC is monitoring equipment on-time and energy usage, and you want to add that data to an equipment maintenance database.
The REST API gives you secure access to all the I/O point and variable data in the PAC.
If you've heard about our Opto 22 SNAP PACs with their built-in RESTful API (application program interface), you may be wondering how you'd use that API to send real-world data to the IBM Watson IoT platform.
I'll show you how, step-by-step, in this blog post. It's a long post, but it includes everything you'll want to know. (You can print this page as a PDF if you like.)
Join us in Utrecht, Netherlands, next week and explore the World of Technology & Science (WOTS) Exhibition. This is the technological venue for everyone in the industrial, science, and healthcare fields.
OptoDistributor Mulder-Hardenberg will welcome you there at stand 10F051 and demonstrate:
Here's the latest Code Samples and Tips contribution in our new OptoForum: an example of easier peer-to-peer communication between PAC controllers.
This example takes advantage of the new RESTful API in SNAP PAC hardware controllers (both the standalone S-series and the rack-mounted R-series).
