.NET Data Connector

Programmatic interface for read and write to data to the OAS IIoT Data Engine.

Product Overview

The .NET Data Connector provides you with full programmatic access to read and write data in the OAS Data Engine. The .NET Data Connector as well as the .NET Configuration assembly are based on .NET Standard for maximum compatibility. This allows you to read and write OAS data or automate the configuration of OAS servers from .NET applications deployed to Windows, Linux, Mac, Android, and iOS devices.

Networking Features

Provides the most robust, scalable, and reliable distributed networking platform for IIoT solutions

Core Features of .NET Data Connector

  • Turn any Visual Studio application into a HMI / SCADA data source.
  • Transfer any .NET custom data from application to application over the Internet.
  • Share .NET data to iPhone, Android, HTC, and HTML5 applications.
  • Log data with 100 Nanosecond resolution together with OAS Data Historian
  • Programmatically access data from OPC Servers with 100% managed component.

This is a great tool for programmers who want full programmatic access so they can:

  • Provide a fully customized user interface using live data with 3rd party controls
  • Read and write live data in  existing .NET application
  • Perform internal analysis of the live data and present the results or perform calculations on the data within the application
  • Create a Windows service to move or manipulate the data.

.NET Data Connector

Programmatic Interface:

  • Asynchronous and synchronous read and write of data.
  • 100 nanosecond resolution.
  • 100% managed .NET component for Smart Client Deployment.
  • Local and remote communications to all data sources and destinations.
  • Browse local and remote OPC Servers.
  • Support for full .NET Framework 4.0+
  • Support for .NET Standard 2.0 for deployment to non-Windows targets such as Linux, Mac, Android, and iOS

Data Sources:


Open Data Format:All interfaces provide access to data directly without the need for proprietary plug ins.

Scalable Big Data:

  • Up to 1,000,000 data points from each server.
  • Up to 10,000 servers to each client.
  • Up to 10,000 clients per server.
  • Up to 100,000,000,000,000,000 data points per network.

Networking:Transfer data over your LAN, WAN, Intranet, or the Internet with 100 nanosecond resolution.

Service to Service and Service to Client communications uses WCF with encrypted and compressed packets for low network usage and high speed.
