Broad range of application for IoT use cases
Besides the visual flow-based programming for fast and easy realization of IoT applications, the large community behind Node-RED, which provides a variety of functions via GibHub, was a main argument for the integration into ctrlX AUTOMATION. Users now have numerous expansion options at their disposal.
In addition, a new expansion stage in the ctrlX IOT product family is already being planned, which will focus on database-based storage of the data acquired with Node-RED. Historical data is used, among other things, to create added value through comparability. In the future, more apps will be added via the ctrlX World partner program, which will use Node-RED directly or enable further use cases in interaction with Node-RED.
The application scenarios are manifold. For example, Prescient Devices, Inc. (PDI) offers a solution for rapid IoT application development in ctrlX World. With the Node-RED-based Prescient Designer, users can design, simulate, deploy, operate and extend IoT/AI systems. This allows thousands of IoT devices like the ctrlX CORE to be programmed in one place, centrally in the cloud. The program code is then simply transferred to the devices with one click. This enables efficient operation and maintenance.
Be it as an entry into the world of the Internet of Things or for sophisticated use cases: With the Node-RED solutions provided by ctrlX AUTOMATION, functions can be implemented and connections created with just a few clicks according to the modular principle. This way, companies are quickly able to act and compete in the networked world.
