I'm looking to find a way to push data from the Matrikon OPC Gateway to an Azure Data Lake Storage and other Cloud-based applications through a middleware platform.
Unfortunately, the middleware platform does not support the OPC-UA protocol.

Thus, I was wondering if it were possible to push data from the Matrikon gateway to an MQTT broker (such as ActiveMQ) or an AMQP broker (such as RabbitMQ) ?
Also, we might need to push some data back from the middleware towards the OPC platform.

Would that be possible ? And how could it be set up (how to bridge these 2 platform) ? Are there other ways to proceed (REST/SOAP/...)?

Thanks for the help.
Kind regards,

Hi Chris,

Do you already have an MQTT broker? If not, you might consider using Ignition Gateway by Inductive Automation, which can function as an MQTT broker using their MQTT Distributor module but can also act as an OPC UA client to your Matrikon gateway. If you already have a broker, you can run Ignition using their MQTT Transmission or Engine modules, instead, which give you MQTT publishing and subscribing features, respectively.

If you aren't talking about a lot of data, Node-RED could also be a suitable choice, since it's made for gluing systems together in this way. It's free and open-source.

Good luck!


P.S. - Full disclosure, I work for an Inductive Automation partner
