    Hello All,
     
    Thank you for your inquiry. The product is in closed beta (not accepting any additional beta testers) and we are close to a release. We anticipate releasing this connector by end of Q2/early Q3, 2019.
     
    Thank you.

    Hello Barry, we are continuing to work with a couple of customer's to get concrete feedback from Beta testing. Would you be interested in Beta testing the connector and providing us feedback?
     
    Regards,

    Chris,
     
    Yes, we have a few customers who have participated in the beta program for PI Connector for MQTT. We plan on releasing a new beta in the next 4-6 weeks. As for the official release, we are targeting Q4 2018.

    Chris,
     
    You will find information on Sparkplug B out here. Sparkplug B essentially defines a message format and other parameters to transfer data using MQTT. 
     
    Is the manufacturer who is sharing data with you an existing PI software user? If yes, then you could possibly leverage PI Cloud Connect as an alternate solution.
     
    One other alternative, if the manufacturer is not an existing OSIsoft customer, is, you use HTTPS instead of MQTT and publish the data via REST calls (from the manufacturer's end) and have the PI Connector for UFL serve as a REST endpoint.
     
    Let me know if you would like any further information on either the PI Connector for MQTT or PI Connector for UFL.

    Hello Chris, we currently have a beta available for PI Connector for MQTT Sparkplug and are in the process of adding some more features into the beta and releasing a new beta in the next few weeks. This connector only support the Sparkplug message format. You mention you are looking for an alternative. What are you looking an alternative for? Do you use any existing connector or interface? Also, are you looking for a MQTT connector which supports a format besides Sparkplug?

    BLUE Open Studio is included with PS5000 and it comes with OPC server. We can thus use our PI OPC interface to connect to the PS5000 series.
