Other Technical Documents2187 SNAP PAC REST API and the Internet of Things - for OT Professionals

We’ve all heard about the Internet of Things (IoT) and its promises: bringing useful data directly to people who make business decisions, and enabling machines to communicate with each other and make decisions for human benefit.

But how does the IoT actually work? How does the data get from inside these physical "things" to computer networks where it can be used?

This technical paper describes that pathway for OT (operational technology) professionals—automation professionals. It describes the kinds of data you may be asked to provide and why. It explains how data from physical "things"—especially existing sensors and actuators that have no IoT capabilities built in—can be securely communicated to company computer networks, without disturbing control networks.

The paper also explains concepts important to any IoT strategy, like encryption and authentication, and introduces a new method to achieve the IoT results you need now, without requiring a complex chain of conversion hardware and software.

We’ve all heard about the Internet of Things (IoT) and its promises: bringing useful data directly to people who make business decisions, and enabling machines to communicate with each other and make decisions for human benefit.

But how does the IoT actually work? How does the data get from inside these machines to computer networks where we can use it?

This technical paper describes that pathway for IT (information technology) professionals, explaining how physical "things" communicate, what kinds of data in them might be useful, and the current barriers to getting that data—especially from existing sensors and devices that have no IoT capabilities built in.

The paper also describes a new method to cut through those barriers and achieve the IoT results you want now.

OptoSQL Proxy is a free utility that allows our SNAP Ultimate I/O and SNAP-LCE controllers to send data to and request data from an OLE-DB data source. It was built to show how to send data to a Microsoft SQL Server but uses features supported by any OLE-DB data source. We also include the source code for customers who wish to adapt the program to their particular application. Hence, we do not support it as a product; rather we provide it as an example. You can learn more by downloading the application note (1428_AppNote_OptoSQLProxy.pdf).
