InduSoft Web Studio took another step toward complete platform agnosticism when it created IoTView – which is especially suitable for Internet of Things (IoT) solutions. Using the standard, user-friendly, Integrated Development Environment (IDE) – InduSoft Web Studio – you can quickly design applications for Data Acquisition, Manipulation, and Presentation and deploy them on multiple platforms running different runtime editions, including IoTView.
Using IoTView, you can run applications on embedded devices with Linux or VxWorks. IoTView’s small footprint requires less than 3MB for the complete runtime product installation.
Are you developing an embedded controller, sensor, valve, flow meter, or other “smart device” and need to rapidly enable data collection or visualization directly from the device? Use IoTView to rapidly deploy a new IoT product category and set yourself apart.
Embed IoTView directly into the device to reduce your development time and be the first to market.
IoTView has built-in drivers for local data acquisition, such as Modbus TCP, Allen-Bradley DF1 over TCP/IP, and MQTT for cloud-system communication. IoTView supports a patented (and easy) solution to publish information (in “real-time”) to external SQL Relational Databases, such as Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle, Sybase, MySQL, or even cloud-hosted databases, such as Microsoft SQL Azure.
Multiple devices running IoTView are connected to a remote Studio Database Gateway through a TCP/IP Link. The Studio Database Gateway is a project-agnostic component, which links IoTView station(s) to remote SQL Relational Databases. This architecture (see below) de-couples the runtime editions (IoTView, CEView, EmbeddedView, or InduSoft Web Studio full runtime) from the actual database engine (end point) and provides a high level of flexibility, especially in hybrid systems with a diverse set of devices collecting information in real time.
The 5 easy steps to configure IoTView today:
- Install InduSoft Web Studio IDE on the development station (download InduSoft Web Studio at www.InduSoft.com).
- Install the Studio Database Gateway on a station running any operating system supported by this component (Windows Embedded Standard, Windows 7/8/10, Windows Server 2008/2012, 32 or 64 bits). In many cases, the Studio Database Gateway is installed on the same station where the SQL Relational Database is installed. After installing InduSoft Web Studio on the development station, you can get the setup for the Studio Database Gateway in the sub-folder “\Redist\DatabaseGateway\GatewaySetup.exe”. For example, for InduSoft Web Studio v8.0 installed in the C drive, the setup for the Studio Database Gateway will be available at “C:\Program Files (x86)\Wonderware InduSoft Web Studio v8.0\Redist\DatabaseGateway\GatewaySetup.exe”.
- Configure the application using the InduSoft Web Studio IDE and link the “Database Connection” through the ribbon interface “Project > Options > Default Database > Advanced”:
- Configure the Trend worksheets and set their “History Format” to “Database”.
- Deploy and run IoTView and the application on the embedded device running Linux or VxWorks.
