Enhancing Industrial IoT with Cloud Events

Introduction The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is at the forefront of a significant transformation in the manufacturing sector, driven by the convergence of advanced technologies, hybrid intelligent edge solutions, and AI. This evolution is not merely about adopting new technologies but about redefining how manufacturing processes communicate, interact, and operate in a connected world. This blog post explores these pivotal advancements, highlighting their role in streamlining operations and fostering a more agile, efficient, and interconnected manufacturing environment.

OPC UA Data Modelling

In this comprehensive tutorial, we will explore the process of OPC UA data modelling. The tutorial will cover modeling a machine, creating an OPC UA server to simulate machinery values, reading data from the server and transmitting it downstream (e.g., to the cloud), and detecting anomalies. What is OPC UA? To answer this question, I like to cite Stefan Hoppe the President and Executive Director of the OPC Foundation: OPC Unified Architecture (OPC UA) is the information exchange standard for secure, reliable, manufacturer- and platform-independent industrial communications.
