Overview

DIA (Device Integration Application) is software that simplifies connecting devices (sensors, PLCs, etc.) to communication gateways. DIA includes a comprehensive library of plug-ins that work out-of-the-box with common device types and can also be extended to include new devices. DIA's unique architecture allows the user to add most of these new devices in under a day.

DIA is designed upon a tested architecture that provides the core functions of remote device data acquisition, control, and presentation between devices and information platforms. It collects data from any device that can communicate with a Digi gateway, and is supported over any gateway physical interface. Digi DIA presents this data to upstream applications in fully customizable formats, significantly reducing a customer’s time-to-market.

Written in the Python programming language for use on Digi devices, DIA may also be executed on a PC for prototyping purposes when a suitable Python® interpreter is installed.

Drivers & Presentations

One of DIA's strengths as a "connector" application is its ability to quickly and easily add new devices (drivers) and presentations (data extraction).
