Introduction to IIoT
Industrial Internet of Things
The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is a network of connected devices and sensors that gather and transmit data in industrial settings such as factories, warehouses, and transportation systems. IIoT enables the automation and optimization of industrial processes, leading to increased productivity, efficiency, and cost savings.
Students and Engineers should learn about IIoT because it is a rapidly growing field with numerous career opportunities. As industries continue to adopt IIoT, there will be a high demand for professionals with expertise in this area. Additionally, understanding IIoT can help students prepare for the digital transformation of industries, which will likely shape the future of work. Finally, IIoT offers exciting possibilities for innovation and entrepreneurship, making it an appealing study area for those interested in technology and business.
Code and Compile offer an amazing IIoT bundle consisting of the following four courses:
- Node-RED made Easy: In this course, you will learn how to collect the data from the PLC via MODBUS TCP/IP and create a dashboard
- Learn OPC UA with Node-RED: In this course, you will learn how to connect to an OPC UA server using an OPC UA client (Node-RED). Furthermore, how to create your own OPC UA server
- Interface MySQL with PLC via Node-RED: In this course, you will learn how to store PLC data in MySQL for data analytics using Node-RED
- Learn MQTT with Node-RED: In this course, you will learn how to connect the PLC or any other controller with MQTT Broker located locally or in the cloud
IT and OT integration refer to the convergence of information technology (IT) and operational technology (OT) in industrial environments. This integration allows for excellent connectivity, data sharing, and analysis, improving efficiency, productivity, and decision-making. It also brings security and compatibility concerns that must be addressed to ensure successful integration.
