Users can manage OPC UA data on the edge and replicate to a server
FairCom’s recently released c-treeEDGE IoT Database V2 is full of new features that provide organizations with the flexibility they need to manage data on the edge, making it ideal for implementation in Industry 4.0 deployments.
One of the new additions is support for Open Platform Communications Unified Architecture (OPC UA) – a standard communication protocol that ensures interoperability, security, connectivity and reliability for IIoT and edge computing devices and systems. OPC UA is the next-generation binary protocol from OPC that is designed for better performance, offers improved security and has a better SDK for integration.
c-treeEDGE V2 has a certified OPC UA client that can automatically persist data coming from OPC UA sources. Once the data enters c-treeEDGE, the database can automatically send it to other systems using protocols such as MQTT and database replication. c-treeEDGE also makes it easy for applications to process the data using SQL and for IT systems to extract, transform and load (ETL) data using ODBC and JDBC standard database interfaces.
This unique technology adds genuine business value to OT and IT shops because it greatly reduces the time, effort and technical expertise required to integrate OT with IT. This makes c-treeEDGE V2 a great fit as an integration hub for IIoT manufacturing.
Detailed information about how to implement OPC UA using c-treeEDGE V2 is available at https://docs.faircom.com/doc/c-treeEDGE_DevelopmentGuide/77891.htm.
