Opto 22 announces joining of Dell IoT Solutions Partner Program
November 30, 2016 – Industrial automation manufacturer and Internet of Things (IoT) application toolset provider Opto 22 announced that it has joined the Dell IoT Solutions Partner Program. This relationship provides a product and solution ecosystem for connecting real-world signals and industrial “things” to the digital world of information technology, mobile, and cloud computing.
Dell’s IoT Partner Program brings together technology and services companies to help customers be at the forefront of this change. Dell IoT partners are qualified to integrate industrial IoT hardware such as edge gateways and embedded PCs into full IoT solutions, but many also work with other Dell and Dell EMC technologies such as server, storage, and networking hardware, and software tools for security, manageability, data integration, and analytics.
The addition of Opto 22 to the Dell IoT Solution Partner Program creates a toolset for IoT application developers. This combination brings together a hardware platform, data visualization for mobile and web clients, industrial automation protocol support including Modbus/TCP and OPC UA, and data flow processing with software development environments like Node-RED. Combining these capabilities with the ability to connect multiple data sources including devices, databases, and third-party APIs (application program interfaces), Opto 22 and Dell deliver a solution for nearly any IoT or edge computing application.
Connecting existing industrial assets to IT systems requires translating the electrical signals (voltage and current) in the physical world to the bits and bytes of the digital world. Opto 22 manufactures the I/O and controllers that translate signals on that “last mile” of the data route.
Designed on open standards and built for harsh industrial environments, Opto 22’s SNAP PAC System integrates hardware and software for the industrial Internet of Things, industrial control, remote monitoring, and data acquisition applications. Designed to simplify the typically complex process of understanding, selecting, buying, and applying an automation system, the SNAP PAC System consists of these integrated components:
- SNAP I/O—analog, digital, and serial I/O modules for wiring directly to field devices, machines, and sensors. Wide variety of signal types; 1 to 32 I/O points per module
- SNAP PAC brains—intelligent I/O processors for distributed control on Ethernet and serial net- works
- SNAP PAC controllers—standalone or rack-mounted industrial controllers with networking options and a RESTful API, or a software-based controller
- PAC Project Software Suite—flowchart-based control programming, HMI (human-machine interface) development and runtime, plus optional OPC server, database connectivity software, and software-based controller for PC-based control
- groov—a tool for building and using custom mobile operator interfaces and system dashboards to monitor and control systems and equipment from any web-enabled device
