Using a publish-subscribe model for sending device data to remote servers, the Skkynet Embedded Toolkit (ETK) allows access to a device and its data from anywhere in the world. The Toolkit enables connectivity to the Cogent DataHub®, a leading industrial middleware product for connecting OPC servers and clients, and to Modbus slaves, ODBC databases, Excel, and custom .NET programs. The Cogent DataHub® also offers a web-based HMI and supports OPC networking, bridging, redundancy, SMS, and email notifications.
The system only allows connections to SkkyHub™ and DataHub®, eliminating the need for VPNs or IT policy changes. It is ideal for applications in industries such as healthcare, automotive, oil and gas, HVAC, and industrial automation.
