N3uron Software Modules

Sparkplug Client

Deploy Plug-and-Play IIoT Infrastructures Using the N3uron Sparkplug Client Module.

Bridge the gap between the Enterprise level and your assets by using Sparkplug

The N3uron IIoT Platform helps you manage the OT and IT convergence. By adding the Sparkplug Client module to the inherent capabilities of the N3uron platform you can decouple devices from applications and make data available to the entire enterprise, ensuring information interoperability and governance. It meets the fundamental need to access more standardized data in order to make better decisions, faster.

“Sparkplug solves once and for all the interoperability challenges we usually face when deploying a complex IIoT solution for our customers.”

Build an OT Centric Infrastructure with Sparkplug

Sparkplug Provides a Standard for Modeling OT Data, leveraging MQTT and providing MQTT clients the framework to seamlessly integrate data from industrial sources within the MQTT infrastructure in a bi-directional and interoperable way. The N3uron Sparkplug Client enables any tag on the N3uron IIoT platform (including complex data structures such as template instances) to be published via MQTT, transforming tags into the Sparkplug MQTT Topic and Payload format, making data available to other MQTT-enabled applications and devices.

Sparkplug Client: Robust, Flexible and extremely Scalable

Using the Sparkplug specification means data is sent securely and extremely efficiently, resulting in highly responsive system updates. N3uron’s Sparkplug Client module also supports store and forward functionality, which means that whenever a communication loss with the MQTT Broker or the Primary Application is detected, time-stamped data will be held locally until the connection is re-established. Once reconnected, live data will be resumed and historic data is back-filled as far as the communication bandwidth allows, thus preventing any data loss.

Sparkplug Client. Efficient, Secure & Plug and play

All data transmitted from the Sparkplug Client is sent using the Sparkplug specification so that tags are 100% self-discoverable by all subscribers within the system. This means that no manual entry is required by users, which added to the Session State Management provided by the Sparkplug Specification results in a true plug-and-play solution. Since Sparkplug is built on top of MQTT, it’s possible to significantly reduce bandwidth by up to 90% simply by sending data on any change events. Data is sent securely using TLS encryption.

Use Sparkplug Client with multiple MQTT Brokers

N3uron’s Sparkplug Client can be configured to have multiple redundant MQTT Brokers, and hence establish the foundations for an unparallel robust infrastructure. If any broker is unavailable, the client will automatically step through a list until it can connect to an available broker. A single module instance allows different data to be published to as many brokers clusters as needed.

Long-Term Support

With N3uron V.1.21, the Sparkplug Client module will achieve long-term support, which means it will receive improvements and fixes for the next five years (until April 2027) from the date of its release so that you can rely on V.1.21 for long-term support.

Sparkplug Client. A powerful solution for connected applications

MQTT Sparkplug establishes a single source of truth for models, assets and tags at the edge. The combination of MQTT, Sparkplug B, and N3uron offers a complete solution for building and scaling connected IT/OT data networks that is open, flexible, and powerful enough to support the requirements of any connected application.


Major benefits of the Sparkplug Client module

To provide secure and efficient connectivity of data to any MQTT-enabled applications.

To Standardize and streamline OT data infrastructures from the edge to cloud.

Data is only reported when there is a change resulting in extremely efficient use of bandwidth. 

Store and Forward: Prevent any data loss.

Multi MQTT broker support for scalability and redundancy.

Outbound TLS secure connection.
