The adage “what gets measured, gets managed” is an old one, and I had heard it many times, but a director of mine in a previous job put a new spin on it: “What gets measured, gets managed, gets improved.”

In part 1 we met two communication models for computers on a network: request-response and publish-subscribe. Now let's take a look at when you might want to use each, and why.
Request-response: proven and reliable
In a request-response architecture, each client opens a direct connection to each server, because the client requests data directly from the server.
In automation, typically clients are PCs and servers are PLCs or PACs. So each PC opens a direct connection to each PLC or PAC from which it needs data.
You've been asking for more details about our brand-new groov EPIC® system for the IIoT and automation, and here they are!
We just published a part numbers list and the first several data sheets, with preliminary descriptions, specs, wiring diagrams, and dimensions. So take a look and start planning the system you want.
