Sources

ExoEdge has two primary functions, one is to communicate data to the IoT Platform in the proper data schema. The second is to interface with sources, such as a Modbus RTU source, that properly interacts with the hardware interface / protocol. ExoEdge handles routing this data from the source up to the platform.

Creating a Source

The following sources are currently available for ExoEdge:

Modbus (TCP/IP and RTU)

This project is a Modbus source for Exosite’s ExoSense which uses ExoEdge, which supports Modbus RTU and TCP.

pip install exoedge-modbus

ExoEdge Modbus Tutorial

Simulator

This project is a Simulator source for ExoEdge use with ExoSense.

pip install exoedge-simulator

More information can be found at: https://pypi.org/project/exoedge-simulator/

File I/O

ExoEdge protocol source that uses a text files as the input and output.

pip install exoedge-fileio

More information can be found at: https://pypi.org/project/exoedge-fileio/

Linux Stats

ExoEdge source that reports linux system information such as device's time and datetime, cpu (%), memory usage (%), and interfaces (json object).
