October 19 12:45 2021
Open Automation Software, one of the leading IIoT solutions providers, is constantly engaged in developing advanced smart solutions and keeps its clients informed about every aspect of its IIoT platform. The IoT Automation Company provides step-by-step instructions to help users streamline their IIoT system and business operations.

They keep expanding their platform compatibility and now allow users to set the Data Source to JSON for customizable dynamic JSON structure generation and automatic data validation. OAS platform is renowned for industrial automation and this new feature greatly expands customers’ ability to automate and move.

Open Automation Software is taking IoT to the next level. Their IIoT platform provides secure networking solutions to move, monitor, and connect data. For more than two decades, the company is offering top-notch OPC, HMI, SCADA, and IoT technology services to several industries. By setting the Data Type to JSON in the system, it becomes possible to store structured data and send JSON data packets to external systems such as MQTT clients and third-party cloud applications. JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) is used for transmitting data in web applications. It is a standard text-based format that represents structured data based on JavaScript object syntax.

A system developer at OAS says, “IIoT projects require IIoT-specific databases to extract value from the huge amount of gathered data in a scalable and efficient manner from Industry 4.0 data sources like OPC UA, Modbus, Allen Bradley PLCs, and Siemens S7 controllers. To unleash the best potential of the IIoT system, we keep improving our platform. XML is a markup language used for document markup. However, JSON is adopted for IoT applications because it is more programmatic, represents objects, and is self-describing. Using the JSON Data Source helps delineate a base JSON structure and the JSONPath syntax can be used to locate nodes in the structure for replacement with OAS Tag data.”

JSON has replaced XML on several platforms and is being supported by all modern browsers. OAS platform also uses JSON and allows users to read and write real-time data. Setting OAS Tags to JSON provides automatic validation. When an OAS user sets the Data Source as JSON, more properties appear. The users have the option to either modify the base structure or use the same base structure for multiple tags.
