Datanow unlocks the ability of modern technology and devices to help your plant work better and smarter. We have a proven process and years of experience connecting plant equipment to the cloud. Here’s the process and your options.
Depending on your set-up, equipment and people, Datanow offers three different ways to get up and running.
After a site evaluation, we supply a kit of devices and instructions for your electrician to follow (only available in New Zealand).
Connect to Datanow at the PLC layer using any industrial network such as Modbus TCP, Ethernet/IP, or plain old serial.
Use internet connected devices and modern languages to push data direct to the Datanow API. Our solutions library and (SDKs) help you get started.
Next, decide which of Datanow’s time-series data functions (events, alerts, messages, notes, etc.) will be most useful for your team and operations.
