The FairCom Edge environment requires three components:

  1. FairCom Edge. See the FairCom Installation Guide.

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.

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