DataHub Extensibility API - Gateway to More Data Sources & Destinations

Connect Anything That Supports TCP/IP

DataHub provides a set of API's that allow any custom application to make a secure, authenticated TCP/IP connection to the DataHub. Integration with Linux is the most common usage we see for DataHub APIs. but we have worked with customers doing applications on both Windows and non-Windows operating systems. 

  • Read data from DataHub namespace
  • Write data to and create items in the DataHub namespace
  • Exchange data with anything else connected to DataHub
  • C++
  • .NET - implemented in C# but will work with any .NET Language
  • Java
  • Over a direct TCP socket connection

DataHub API's are free to use, you will just need the Tunneling feature and a TCP Link License as part of your DataHub Solution Pack for each concurrent connection.

Case Study - Linux to Rockwell HMI Integration in Lunar Mining

You read that right, Lunar Mining.  NORCAT, a mining technology company, was creating an autonomous drill that used a Xhiphos Technologies Q5 controller based on Linux but needed to get it to integrate with a Rockwell HMI used in the commissioning and testing phases of the project.  

Using the DataHub API, they were able to connect the Q5 controller code to the DataHub, and then used a standard OPC connection for the HMI to read from DataHub.

Embedded Devices 

DataHub also has very lightweight Embedded Toolkit (ETK) that is intended for device manufacturers seeking to expose their data via OPC DA or OPC UA without having to embed those protocols. By simply mirroring their data up to a DataHub instance, exposing what they want for read-only or read/write access, users can leverage the functionality of DataHub to do about anything. 

If you are an embedded device manufacturer and want to learn more, request a consultation.
