GeoSCADA to API Gateway

Hi,

reading throuh the GeoSCADA help files I find

 

1.  Introduction to the Simple EcoStruxure Web Services Client Driver, which seems to use a SECWS driver and is programmed directly in GeoSCADA

 

2.  .Net API, Automation Interface and Web Interfaces (SOAP and XML), which seems to require the use of Visual Studio, and adds another component to the communications

 

What is the best method of brining in data to GeoSCADA from an API Gateway?

 

Thanks,

Re: GeoSCADA to API Gateway

Depends on your requirements. The ODBC driver may be useful here for simple data import.

To 'push' data into Internal points you could use the c# .Net API:

Alternatively you can go all the way and write your own driver with the DDK.

Re: GeoSCADA to API Gateway

I recommend you go through the DDK guide steps, looking at each aspect of the DDK. You can use the supplied examples (a Modbus scanner) or the Notify driver, and check off each section of the guide as you find it in the code. I'm sure doing it this way will give a working result.

Re: GeoSCADA to API Gateway

Hi Steve, I built a web client that uses SOAP to GeoSCADA.

There may be better ways. This works and I am not aware of any issues with using SOAP as the solution for that part?

 

I took some time and looked at the DDK and made little progress I'm afraid.

From memory, the code generated a Notify.dll, however there was an issue with the Redirector and 32 / 64 bit references.

(Of course I never had Twilio, though I was only trying to communicate between the Redirector  Web server / client and GeoSCADA).

 

It would be nice to get the driver working and also become more familiar with the parameters used to build the driver.

 

Thanks,
