Due to the fact that IIoT applications require collection and processing of vast amounts of data, and with the amount of data being processed expanding at an ever-increasing rate, how to deploy data to a cloud securely and efficiently is a key aspect of system performance. Moxa’s MX-AOPC UA Suite provides the most seamless, efficient, and cost-effective way to deploy OT data to an IT cloud.
Traditionally, it has been difficult for IT engineers to write agent programs to poll the thousands of registers used for field site data. This difficulty stems from the fact that field site data is handled using fieldbus protocols, but the data needs to be written to an IT database. These difficulties are compounded considerably when it comes time to scale up a facility, particularly since the additional load created can put a tremendous strain on systems that rely on legacy data acquisition methods. MX-AOPC UA Suite can be used to collect data from field site registers via Modbus protocol. The data can then be provided to an IT cloud, such as Azure Cloud, an MES, or a web service, or MX-AOPC UA Logger can be used to write the data to an IT database, all without the need for additional programming effort.
