Tatsoft (www.tatsoft.com), the developers of the markets first .NET-to-the-core application development platform to create applications for todays’ and tomorrows runtime environments, releases FactoryStudio Industrial IoT (IIoT) HMI for Raspberry PI and Linux.

FactoryStudio delivers real-time information while providing a complete set of fully-integrated modules in a unified and intuitive engineering user interface. With FactoryStudio, projects can scale from local embedded devices and mobile applications up to very large, distributed, high performance fault-tolerant systems.

When talking about the Industrial Internet of Things, of course connectivity is expected, but Tatsoft FactoryStudio IIoT takes it to a higher next level, providing the Application Development Platform to allow easy creation of solutions for the device level itself, with Graphical real-time displays, communication protocols to PLCs, data logging, alarm engine, local SQL storage and C#/VB.NET scripting. Those embedded applications can easily communicate with remote FactoryStudio applications on the cloud, or on premises, accessing and consolidating distributed information.

The FactoryStudio platform can also work as the presentation layer and data gateway to historian systems, such as OSIsoft PI, Prediktor APIS, and ERP systems such as SAP, or directly connect with the SQL enterprise databases.

“The development tools are the same whether you are deploying projects to Microsoft Windows computers running .NET Framework, Linux operating system with the Mono Framework and Raspberry PI devices. For Raspberry PI, we also included easy access to onboard I/O in addition to all other HMI features,” explains Marcos (Marc) Taccolini, Tatsoft LLC CTO.

This release complements the FactoryStudio multi-platform solutions that already have runtimes for Windows Compact Framework and iOS devices. According Dave Hellyer, Sr VP Marketing, “Tatsoft believes that we can use the intersection of data, people and intelligent machines to have a deep impact on the productivity and efficiency of industries.”

Tatsoft FactoryStudio helps turn data into information, helping companies reduce risk and improve the reliability of small to massive industrial systems. Going beyond simply improving operational efficiency, it is a tool for better understanding of your business and for finding opportunities for growth, and a better, more stable future for the company.
