    #4 PLC data with MySQL sync

    In this lesson, you will see how using Node-RED its easy to move the data between the PLC and MySQL database

    From Shop-floor to the Cloud

    The industry data plays a significant role in the decision-making process.
    It is very important to know how to fetch data from the shop floor and convert it into information. There are thousands of sensors on the shop floor which are reading data from the process every millisecond.
    As a PLC Programmer, we know we cannot store all the information in the PLC memory as it has some limitations.

    To store and analyze the data from the last 5-10 years or more, we need an external database.

    In this course, you will learn how to store the data from Siemens S7-1200 PLC or any other controller in an external database like MySQL with the help of Node-RED. You will learn how to search, insert, update, or delete data from the database via Node-RED programming.

    Furthermore, you will learn how to move the PLC data from local database to cloud database

    In this course, we explain how to read data from PLC and store it in MySQL database. If you have a PLC, it would be great. Else you can also communicate to PLC Simulator like PLCSIM to read the PLC data. You can also read data from Raspberry Pi and store in the database. The course is more focused on data modelling to store the data in MySQL database.
