This 1.5 hour tutorial is unique because 3 suppliers came together to collaborate and build this system live in an event hosted by the IntegrateLive! community. The workshop uses the concept of master recipes and inventory to perform a round trip from the PLC to retrieve a master recipe from SAP, produce the product, log the production, and then update SAP with the amount of product actually produced using the historian data. All of this gets built in about 35 minutes!
The virtual workshop uses OPC Router's certified SAP connector, OPC UA support, REST web services support, JSON parsing, and visual workflows to build a live connection that connects via OPC UA to a Phoenix Contact PLCNext PLC and a Canary Labs Historian via OPC UA and REST, and adds the DataHub OPC Gateway to handle some nuances of OPC UA security that one of the systems needed help with.
We encourage watching the entire video below, but here are some time points to help you if your time is limited. A 36-minute version focused solely on implementation is also available.

The demo is the full product. When you put an OPC Router project into runtime, it will stop operating after 2 hours and have to be restarted. Purchase of a license will remove the restriction.
