Over the past few years, the Industrial IoT (IIoT) has been transformed from a concept into real solutions that focus on business-to-business, device-to-device, and people-to-device connectivity across industrial networks.
The first step to realizing an IIoT application is data collection, and an ever-increasing number of IIoT technologies are now available to collect large amounts of data from monitored OT systems. There are 3 key actions that can help you seamlessly connect your devices, data, and SCADA systems:
- Convert I/O signals to multiple OT protocols: Modbus, EtherNet/IP, Active Tag
- Deliver data to a local SCADA system and database
- Ensure data completeness: supplement data automatically, on demand, or on a schedule
