Associated Results

ATS Bus   - Enabled a single, common service bus for data exchange between the PLCs and other high level components of the system, including a SCADA system. Used a broker-based publish-subscribe approach to decouple the physical sources and destinations of the data to facilitate reconfigurability.

Nservicebus  - The underlying technology which enabled the ATS Bus to exchange data.

OPC UA (Kepware) – Many devices could not interface directly with the service bus, so OPC UA was used to extract data and publish it to the service bus.
