Data Route Connector

Machine to machine data transfer, from any device or software platform to any other device or platform.

Product Overview

The Data Route Connector enables machine to machine (M2M) data transfer and communications. An OAS Service can also write values from any Tag to any other Tag in effect providing an easy to use protocol converter or gateway. Typical examples might be moving data from an Allen Bradley PLC to MQTT, Azure IoT, Amazon AWS, Siemens PLC, Modbus, OPC Server or OPC Client.

This also simplifies remote networking for OPC by installing the OAS Service at each OPC Server system and takes advantage of the built in TCP communications in Open Automation Software. All connections can be local or remote over LAN, WAN or internet.

Core Features of Data Route

  • Machine to machine (M2M) data transfer
  • Protocol Conversion / Protocol Gateway
  • Overcome the limitations of interoperability by moving live data between PLCs, like AB to Siemens or Siemens to Modbus.
  • Implement one-to-one, one-to-many, and, using built in calculations, many to one OAS item data transfer.
  • Transfer data to cloud services Azure IoT Data Hub, AWS IoT Gateway, Kafka, and MQTT.
  • Transfer data from one OPC DA server to another across your LAN, WAN or Internet quickly and securely without DCOM.
  • Transfer data from OPC DA servers to OPC UA servers or vice versa.
