The following architectures are some use cases scenarios where vNode is used in real projects:
Standalone vNode collecting data from the local network and serving data to applications in the local network.
vNode works as a data concentrator.
Linked vNodes between different networks.
vNode can be configured to open the connection from the distributed Plant vNodes to the central IT vNode. Therefore there are no open ports at the Plant Firewalls.
Linked vNodes between different networks through a secure DMZ.
vNode can be configured to open the connection from the distributed Plant vNodes and from the central IT vNode to the DMZ vNode. Therefore there are no open ports in any Firewall.
Sharing realtime data between companies through a secure DMZ.
The SCADA software from a 3rd company gets realtime data from our control system. Using vNode in a DMZ with an outbound connection creates a connection 100% secure.
Remote vNodes running in aisolated locations. Each vNode is collecting local data and sending it straight to the Cloud.
Remote vNodes running in aisolated locations.
Each vNode is collecting local data and sending it to a Control Center where data is grouped, analyzed and validated. Then only a data collection is uploaded the Cloud.
Standalone vNode collecting realtime data from remote data sources such as a weather forecast Website, Power Meters, or Sensors supporting REST. vNode collects all the data and stores in a Database.
Standalone vNode collecting realtime data from local and remote data sources. Data gets stored in a local MongoDB. vNode acts as a RESTful Server sending realtime and historical data to REST API Clients.
In order to have a better understanding about the needed hardware running vNode in a certain project, we have done several stress tests:
- NPE X500 fanless embedded PC
- RAM: 1GB
- CPU: ARMv7 Processor rev 4 – Speed: 1200 MHz
- Cores: 4
