Data integration for IoT and Industry 4.0 applications

06 August 2017

Softing’s latest dataFEED OPC Suite allows for the transfer of data via REST protocols and supports NoSQL databases.

The REST Connector enables data from automation networks to be integrated into applications supporting REST protocols. Data may originate from a variety of sources including control systems from leading manufacturers as well as OPC UA or OPC Classic servers. 

Together with its second new feature, the support of write access to NoSQL databases such as MongoDB, the dataFEED OPC Suite is said to be suited for IoT and Industry 4.0 applications. REST protocols are used in particular for communication with cloud-based applications, such as the Production Performance Manager of Bosch Software Innovations. NoSQL databases enable high-performance processing of very large amounts of data. They are thus often the basis for advanced analysis methods which, for example, can be used for predictive maintenance.

DataFEED OPC Suite combines a package of components for OPC and IoT cloud communication within a single product. In addition to the integrated REST interface, the MQTT gateway and OPC UA support enable integration of legacy and new controllers into cloud solutions.
