Flow Editor Node-RED

Node-RED allows data to be processed in any way through numerous open source modules and to be moved into almost any software system.

If, in addition to the autosen.cloud, measurement data is to be transferred to your own external systems or processed externally using your own source code, an interface (API) is required via which the measurement data can be queried in the autosen.cloud. In addition to the REST interface, autosen.cloud offers free connection nodes for the graphical flow editor Node-RED.

Once all the desired measurement data from IO-Link sensors, io-key and autosen.cloud has been collected and processed and either functions purely as a data source or already generate logical output events, it can be processed in a variety of ways. With the free io-key connectors for Node-RED, individual measured values, alarms or other events can be integrated directly into the graphical flow editor – without having to manually request an API.

The open source software Node-RED is a graphical development tool that enables the implementation of your own applications and automatisms in the field of the Industrial Internet of Things. A library of different function blocks is available, which must be converted into a data flow by "drag & drop" and simple connections. Thanks to "graphical programming", only little programming knowledge is required.

This means that there are no limits to creativity.

Edge Schaltfunktion 1) All nodes are clearly explained. 2) Function blocks allow you to create logical operations with JavaScript. 3) For example, an MQTT broker can send the calculated data to another cloud instance. 4) Use the io-key® measurement nodes to subscribe to your data points from the autosen.cloud.

Create IoT flows easily & without coding knowledge!

From there, you can forward these to any cloud-based software systems (e.g. AWS, Azure, ...) or process them according to any rules and custom-developed functions. You can also generate outputs in the form of emails or push notifications.

Node-RED allows you to process your data externally so that you can derive personal benefit from it. The io-key® Node-RED Connector can be downloaded free of charge from the following external link.
