A unified data model with pre-installed protocols lets you quickly begin streaming data from your device to a networked system, the cloud, or both.
Here’s what you get with the Skkynet ETK:
Faster project completion.
Pre-installed OPC UA, Modbus, and DHTP protocols let you quickly configure in-plant and cloud connections. SDK parameter support for any other protocol.
Receives, integrates, and streams up to 50,000 data changes per second—at speeds just microseconds over network latencies. See a demo.
Device and data security.
Patented technology for outbound-only connections means no exposed attack surface—no IT policy changes, no open firewall ports, and no VPNs. Built-in SSL library for data encryption.
Single, unified data set.
Supports multiple protocols simultaneously, for unlimited client and server connections. Pools all data into a single set, no need for a gateway.
One-way or two-way.
Stream data from your devices for monitoring, or stream commands, updates and configuration back to your system. Or both.
The ETK is free to use* for qualified partners connecting to DataHub or SkkyHub, with no run-time royalties or licensing fees.
The ETK has been installed and tested on Renesas Synergy and RZ/N1, Red Lion devices, Raspberry Pi, Armadillo, mbed, Arduino, GR-Sakura, and ARCNET boards running Linux or TRON, as well as Lantronix XPort, WinPort, MatchPort, WiPort, PremierWave, and more.
Devices running the ETK can connect directly to SkkyHub. This provides real-time access to data, with remote monitoring and optional supervisory control through SkkyHub WebView. The DHTP protocol ensures secure, high-performance networking. You can connect the ETK in 2 ways:
Installed on the Red Lion cellular RTUs or routers.
Devices running the ETK can connect over DHTP to the DataHub running at a plant or other facility. This provides local data logging and integration, as well as monitoring and supervisory control with DataHub WebView. For end-to-end Industrial IoT scenarios, the DataHub serves as a securegateway to SkkyHub, to provide wider access to ETK data in real time. Multiple ETK-to-Skkyhub and DataHub-to-SkkyHub connections can support complete plant networking solutions.
Embedded systems and gateways that support the ETK for making connections to SkkyHub include Red Lion, B+B SmartWorx, NetComm, SysLINK, as well as a number of embedded boards.
Skkynet’s extensive customer list covers a wide range of industrial sectors, including aerospace, oil & gas, chemicals, pharma, manufacturing, energy & utilities, food & beverage―in short, virtually any area in automation and control or system integration.
