The system is based on an ARM Linux platform that has been tried and tested in industrial use and offers a turnkey Node-RED installation for the graphic development of IoT and Industry 4.0 applications.
The device is equipped with two digital inputs and outputs for easy connection of sensors and actuators. By using appropriate processing nodes, the inputs can, for example, trigger messages, be displayed on a dashboard or initiate other actions. The outputs can also be displayed on the dashboard, switched from there or used for local alarms.
W&T have made this video to show how easy its works:
In addition to the Node-RED base nodes, the development environment also includes W&T expansion nodes for the integration of Web-IOs, Web thermometers and Com-Servers. By installing additional nodes, IoT devices, protocols and clouds from other manufacturers are supported. This enables use as a universal control center for the control cabinet.
The rule.box Digital 2xIn, 2xOut is now available for commercial customers for a net price of € 498.00 / 3.735 DKK excl. tax and can be tested free of charge for 30 days. Further information can be found by this link: click here
