Data collection plugin list

Data collection plugins can be categorized into southbound driver plugins and northbound application plugins. Southbound plugins are communication drivers that implement specific protocols to access external devices. Northbound plugins are typically used to connect to cloud platforms or data stream processing modules. To achieve protocol format conversion, at least one southbound plugin and one northbound plugin are required for data transmission and collection, respectively.

After logging into NeuronEX, you can click on Data Collection -> Plugin to view the system's plugin list. You can also click the Add Plugin button in the upper-left corner to install custom plugins.

View Available Plugin Modules

The plugin management page displays all available pluggable modules and detailed information, including the plugin name, associated node type, and description. As shown in the figure below, you can select plugins for northbound applications or southbound devices from the drop-down menu.

Plugin types include:

  • System: Non-removable, comes with the software.
  • Custom: Removable, developed by users or custom developers.

Add New Pluggable Modules

On the plugin page, click the Add Plugin button in the upper-left corner to upload the plugin file.

For specific plugin development tutorials, please refer to the SDK Tutorial.

Replace Existing Plugin Modules

On the plugin page, click the Replace button on each plugin card to upload the local plugin file.

For specific instructions on replacing and updating plugins, please contact the EMQ business team.
