Don Pearson, chief strategy officer of Inductive Automation, demonstrated the addition of Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) functionality to the existing human-machine interface/supervisory control and data acquisition (HMI/SCADA) functionality to InduA demonstration of the speed and flexibility of the new MQTT Modules for Ignition was offered by Inductive Automation and Cirrus Link at the 20th Annual ARC Industry Forum in Feb. 8 in Orlando. Ignition is software from Inductive Automation.

Don Pearson, chief strategy officer of Inductive Automation and Travis Cox, co-director of sales engineering, along with Arlen Nipper, president of Cirrus Link Solutions and co-inventor of MQTT, demonstrated the addition of Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) functionality to the existing human-machine interface/supervisory control and data acquisition (HMI/SCADA) functionality to Inductive Automation's Ignition industrial application platform. The modules-MQTT Engine, MQTT Injector, and MQTT Distributor-are designed to accelerate organizations' ability to leverage the IIoT.

Pearson said companies aren't getting the data they need for decisions. Coupling devices with applications stops innovation because systems take too much time to set up and change after that.

Arlen Nipper, president of Cirrus Link Solutions and co-inventor of MQTT, demonstrated the addition of Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) functionality to the existing human-machine interface/supervisory control and data acquisition (HMI/SCADA) functionNipper explained that Inductive Automation and Cirrus Link Solutions are taking a fundamentally different approach by combining Ignition software from Inductive Automation with all efficiency of MQTT, a translator used in oil and gas successfully for 10 years. MQTT is a pub/sub messaging transport that's perfectly suited to the IIoT. MQTT provides fast, bi-directional communication in a very simple manner, so it requires minimal network bandwidth. And the speed of the new solution is groundbreaking. The modules with Induction technology are designed to connect hundreds of devices in just minutes.
