When you integrate sensor data acquisition software into your application, you can make things happen. With it, you can connect to serial, MODBUS, and TCP/IP based devices. Because it handles the sensor measurement, acts as a MQTT subscriber or publisher, and can act as a DDE client or server. Excel can act as either a DDE client or server. When you bring both applications together for Excel MQTT DDE linking it opens up a lot of possibilities. It allows Excel to do real time data analysis of your IOT data acquisition application.
