Microsoft Azure IoT Gateway integration on IO-Link Master’s
Pepperl+Fuchs Comtrol’s MultiLink™ technology allows IO-Link sensor data (status, events, and process data) to integrate directly with the Azure IoT Hub while simultaneously communicating with the sensor data to the PLC controller. Pepperl+Fuchs Comtrol’s IO-Link Masters – with IoT Gateway functionality – communicate with sensors and send information to the Azure IoT Hub, which in turn can make it available to Azure Stream Analytics and other cloud-based applications.
Benefits of Comtrol’s Microsoft Azure IoT Gateway SDK Integration:
- IO-Link sensor data has a direct link between Pepperl+Fuchs Comtrol’s IO-Link Master and Microsoft Azure
- Supports popular SCADA systems, such as Iconics and Wonderware and many others running on the Azure cloud platform
- Enables IO-Link sensor data to flow into Industry 4.0 and IIoT connections
