Microsoft has an extensive IoT platform based on Azure.
Some of the original accelerators (it started with Azure IoT suites) like Remote Monitoring are now outdated or even archived. These are replaced by excellent Azure IoT Central apps which demonstrate the capabilities of the IoT platform for numerous markets and verticals:
There is still one original accelerator alive-and-kicking: the Connected Factory. This one demonstrates the use of OPC-UA protocols on the edge and in the cloud.
More than two years ago, I already wrote about this accelerator and the OPC publisher module, the backbone of this accelerator. Since then, a lot has changed. Some functionality is (temporarily) deprecated so I got a lot of questions based on the old blogs.
So it’s time to update it a little and see how the OPC Publisher is doing these days.
The OPC-UA solution is open source and covers a lot:
I limit this blog to the scope of my very first blog, extracting OPC-UA messages and send them to the cloud using a ‘published nodes’ file.
We just need an OPC-UA server to get some sample data from. For this, I used an Advantech Wise 710 as an industrial protocol gateway.Doorgaan met het lezen van “Handling Advantech Wise 710 OPC-UA telemetry using OPCPublisher”
