Skkynet subsidiaryCogent Real-Time Systems has announced the latest release of the Cogent DataHub, which offers open platform communications unified architecture (OPC UA) support. This new version can connect to almost any industrial system, from legacy equipment to state-of-the-art Industry 4.0 and IIoT projects. The DataHub extends OPC UA by seamlessly connecting it to the previous OPC Classic generation, while providing full integration with SQL databases, Excel spreadsheets and a web-based HMI.
Capable of handling over 50,000 data changes per second, it is also seamlessly integrated with Skkynet’s SkkyHub and ETK for secure, end-to-end IIoT and Industry 4.0 connectivity.
SkkyHub connects to the Cogent DataHub to securely network live data in real time from any location. It enables bidirectional IoT-based supervisory control, integration and sharing of data among multiple users. Secure by design, the service requires no VPN, open firewall ports, special programming or additional hardware.
