Kors Engineering has developed an easy to use application that allows users of Tridium Niagara AX framework technology to leverage Pachube.com to monitor data streams from remote facilities.
Kors Engineering, a premier service provider for manufacturing and industrial organizations announced today the availability of a free tool that allows any user of the Tridium Niagara AX framework to easily export data streams to the cloud through Pachube, a real-time, software as a service (SaaS)-based data management infrastructure.
Pachube provides services to store and access real-time data streams via a robust application programming interface (API), providing the means for developers to power applications for the Internet of Things. The Internet of Things refers to the concept of the networked interconnection of everyday objects to drive informed decision making through pervasive data access.
Exporting data from the Tridium Niagara AX framework, Kors Engineering created an object that streams the data to Pachube. Once a data feed is created in Pachube, updating it with Niagara AX takes only a couple of simple configuration parameters. The application options are limited only by the data captured through the Niagara AX Framework.
One practical use to consider is monitoring energy and facilities. To view a simple example of monitoring a facility browse to http://www.pachube.com/feeds/17600 to review current facility information at the Kors Engineering offices.
“This is an easy-to-configure, free application that provides a tremendous value to those using the Tridium Niagara AX Framework,” said Kors Engineering President Tony Kaczmarek. “The options to export and monitor data have never been more simple to access and leverage.”
“Pachube provides a way for developers interfacing with Tridium to get their data up into the cloud where it can be mashed up and manipulated with rich web services across the internet,” said Usman Haque, CEO of Pachube. “Once the barriers are removed for open collaboration across industries, the truly innovative applications will surface. We are facilitating that transition here with Kors Engineering.”
