Industrial Controls #2
Let/s use hive to create an MQTT broker as a model for an industrial IoT unified namespace. A unified namespace is a software solution that acts as a centralized repository of data, information, and context where any application or device can consume or publish data needed for a specific action. Without a centralized data repository, it could take months to deploy a new analytics application across the entire enterprise versus hours with a unified namespace. (MQTT) is a lightweight, publish-subscribe network protocol that transports messages between devices. The protocol usually runs over TCP/IP; however, any network protocol that provides ordered, lossless, bi-directional connections can support MQTT.

We will use a BRX IIoT PLC as a publisher to push a couple of data points from a machine. Then use Node-JS as a subscriber to knock out a quick HMI or web based dashboard.
Workshop will be held at Cutorama.
