RESTful API for PAC range

01 August 2016

Opto 22 has introduced a RESTful API to its industrial programmable automation controllers (PACs), which, it says, will help to speed rapid Industrial Internet of Things application development, reduce time to market in machine and system design, and speed up automation and control project deployment.

REST architecture and technology are intrinsic to the Internet of Things and are important for web and mobile-based application development. Opto 22 believes that its implementation of REST directly into a commercially available, off-the-shelf (COTS) industrial programmable automation controller is unique among industrial automation and control manufacturers.

The RESTful API gives developers secure programmatic access to new or legacy physical assets through control variables and input/output (I/O) data using any programming language that supports JavaScript Object Notation (JSON). Available through a free updated firmware release for Opto 22 SNAP PAC, the RESTful API includes an HTTP/S server accessible from any HTTP/S-compatible client.
