More possibilities with JSON

With the new OPC Router version 5.2, there is also an addition to working with JSON. The new JSON transform in the OPC Router can convert data more easily into the popular JSON format. Together with JSONata, a JSON document can be transformed quickly and easily for further use.

The JSON transform can recognize header and payload data of a JSON structure and automatically transforms them into an equal and uniform JSON structure to make working with JSON even easier.

Enhancements in working with SAP

Together with the new change in working with JSON, the OPC Router is now able to convert data from SAP directly into a JSON format. This data can then be transferred to other systems and devices via JSON and processed directly.

In addition, the SAP trigger object has been given the option to include tables and parameters in the input and output. Queue processing via qRFC is also supported with the OPC Router 5.2 for sending IDocs to SAP.

Extensions in the database connection

The OPC Router now has even more setting options for reading data from a database. The data read out can now be individually marked by the OPC Router in a separate column.
