FairCom EDGE Developer Quick Start

This chapter covers installation and tutorials to get you immediately up-and-running with FairCom EDGE in your projects.

The FairCom EDGE environment requires three components:

  1. FairCom EDGE. See the FairCom EDGE Installation Guide.
  2. Plug-in - A plug-in extends FairCom EDGE. Many plug-ins exist. You can use plug-ins supplied by FairCom and you can create your own plug-ins. You may add a plug-in to integrate FairCom EDGE with another system such as ThingWorx AlwaysOn. You may add a new communications protocol, such as MQTT, OPC UA, and REST. You may add a new transformation capability, such as processing Cognex image data. You may add a new processing capability, such as running a machine learning algorithm.

    The Supported Plug-ins chapter provides information and tutorials for connecting to a variety of platforms.

  3. Tools - Administrative tools are available in GUI and Command-Line form. See the Administrative Tools chapter.

The server is packaged together with a set of plug-ins for popular environments (ThingWorx, Node-RED, MQTT, REST, etc.).
