Remote I/O over MQTT helps Rust Automation deploy affordable remote monitoring in a challenging environment.
Jared Bates, from OptoPartner Rust Automation & Controls, joined us for that presentation. He discussed a current water management application that utilizes CODESYS on EPIC, groov RIO remote I/O, and MQTT for secure data communications.
Now, we've put the story of all that cutting-edge technology into a case study, so you can dig into all the details!
The case study describes:
- How Rust combined 900 MHz radio, Wi-Fi, and cellular sites into a hybrid I/O network using groov RIO
- Why they decided to use MQTT instead of traditional poll-response protocols for part of their network
- How to subscribe to MQTT data directly from a groov EPIC control program
- How edge devices save money by consolidating control system functions
