With the proliferation of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) Monico recognized the need to introduce two products for machine owners – mCore® SDR and MonicoLive™. MonicoLive is a cloud-based monitoring service built on the Pi System. mCore SDR is an Edge device purpose-built for IIoT as a Security Data Router, Advanced Protocol Converter, and Edge Analytics Computer.
This presentation will cover the steps taken to incorporate OMF into mCore in order to make it an integrated component of the PI System and provide some of the features of the existing Windows-based interfaces for Modbus and OPC communication. These features include Exception, Buffering, Scan Classes and Configuration Utility (User Interface). Various aspects of the design process will be covered – including the role of a machine Subject Matter Expert and how the PI System was used to facilitate the design effort and validate considerations such as data quality and date fidelity.
