thanks Kevin for giving different options in sending simulator data into ignition. Let me brief about our use case.
We are developing a pressure vessel simulator (like physical device connected to PLC) on aws cloud and we have already installed scada ignition software (mysql as database) on aws cloud. Now our pressure vessel simulator keeps generating data once in 30 seconds and this data should be displayed in ignition dashboard.
What is the best solution for OPC UA to pull generated data from our simulator. Need your advice here.
If OPC-UA server polls data from the device, where will my device (simulator) stores it until it gets pick by OPC-UA server ?
Also, since we already have the ignition software (along with OPC UA server) already installed, will implement one of the drivers supported by already installed OPC UA server so that OPC UA can poll the data from simulator via this driver.
Does it makes sense ?
