RESTful API in a PAC!
Just say no to middleware.
Now Internet of Things applications can securely communicate directly with programmable automation controllers (PACs).
What can I do with a RESTful API to a PAC?
- Archive I/O and variable data from the PAC directly into Microsoft SQL Server using Microsoft's T-SQL—no OPC or ODBC required
- Read or write PAC data using your favorite programming language—C, C++, C#, Java, PHP, Python, and many more
- Build a mobile application that directly accesses data on your PAC—using Java, Swift, or Xcode
- Build a data flow application for communicating with cloud platforms and cloud APIs, using Node-RED and our SNAP PAC Nodes.
For software developers and Internet of Things (IoT) applications, the RESTful API and server allow secure access to PAC Control variable and I/O data in any SNAP PAC standalone S-series or rackmounted R-series programmable automation controller with firmware R9.5a or higher.
