Watch this: Connect a Smart Factory to the Cloud with MQTT & Sparkplug

Posted by Janice Colmer on Apr 30, 2021 12:53:08 PM

New recorded webinar shows how easy it is to connect field assets to the cloud using HiveMQ and then visualize the real-time data in Canary Cloud.

Did you miss this week's webinar with our Tech Partners HiveMQ and Canary Labs? It's now available for on-demand viewing and you might even want to watch it again to catch all the details of the live demo!

The movement towards building smart factories is driving the adoption of MQTT and Sparkplug. These two technologies define a competitive standard for sharing industrial data across an entire ecosystem of hardware and application providers, like SCADA, MES, and Historian vendors.

So, we challenged ourselves with this webcast to put these concepts into action in an easy-to-follow, and most importantly, live demo. No simulated data here!

The best part is that no software was installed to make it happen - only HiveMQ and Canary Labs cloud solutions working with Opto 22 hardware (groov EPIC and groov RIO), which we hope is a formula that even small operations will be able to replicate.

You'll see Benson Hougland of Opto 22 and Jeff Knepper of Canary Labs configure the system before your eyes, including automatic discovery of 150 tags in Canary Historian, published from California to HiveMQ in Germany and down to Canary on the East Coast, in seconds.

Does MQTT really work that fast? One webinar attendee commented, "This was amazing. The best webinar I have ever attended. I have spent countless hours configuring tag by tag in systems. What Sparkplug B allows you to do with its structure is astounding. The speed of MQTT is astounding. This is jaw-dropping."

Maybe you should see for yourself...
