Hi fellow forgers!

Currently we are working hard to build a CODESYS compatible Sparkplug Primary Host.

A Sparkplug PrimaryHost is the beating heart of the SparkplugB IoT architecture and acts as a central dataconcentrator hub for all Nodes and Devices within the network. Until now, a Primary Host ran exclusively on a PC as a service or executable. Installation of such a machine is not too difficult. However, setup and configuring can be quite a task if you never have used the software before.

Our Primary Host however, can run on any sufficient PLC or PC based CODESYS controller! Since our library is written in 100% IEC code, it is by design portable with any compatible third party CODESYS based controller (WAGO, Schneider ABB etc etc). Plus, setup of our CODESYS based Primary Host node takes only minimal effort!

The current implementation is able to scan any received NBIRTH's and figures out what Groups, Edges, Devices and Metrics are present in the network. Next to this it is able to update the metrics with data received from the NDATA /and NDEATH payloads.

Please show us your support by dropping us a message or a question. We would love to hear from you πŸ‘!

With kind regards, the SparkplugB project team.
