Are there gateway solutions that allow me to convert plc tags to a JSON or XML for consumption by an IOT solution. Not everybody wants to have a server rack next to the plc cabinet to house a SCADA server or OPC server in order to handle this type of conversion. A product like the AB 1756-EWEB for a Contrologix but without the cost and the need to take up a chassis slot. It appears that the EWEB module only creates XML and therefore a little behind the times.
We also see a need for a similar module and have a solution in development now. We are currently expecting a Q1 2018 release.
Support for up to 5 AB PLCs
Support for up to 1000 data points
The solution could be housed on any of the RTA standard hardware offerings.
I’ll keep this forum thread updated as future details and dates become available. If you’d like to discuss your need further give us a call. We’d love you get your opinion on a few technical details.
