“I've been very impressed with the whole Node-RED project,” said Jim Turner, Senior Software Developer at Opto 22. “It's well run, polished, and of high quality, but still very practical and useful. It's been a pleasure to develop for their platform.”
Temecula, CA (PRWEB) August 11, 2016
Industrial automation manufacturer and Internet of Things platform developer Opto 22 announces immediate availability of Node-RED nodes for its industrial programmable automation controllers (PACs), significantly decreasing IIoT application development time and complexity. These Node-RED nodes for PACs make it easier to prototype and develop applications for connecting physical assets to cloud applications. Node-RED nodes and a RESTful API for Opto 22 SNAP PAC R-series and S-series controllers are available free for download at http://developer.opto22.com.
Rapid IIoT Application Prototyping
Linking technology assets and services together to build IIoT applications often requires layers of complex software development and long development cycles that quickly erode IIoT application ROI. Opto 22’s Node-RED nodes for SNAP PAC programmable automation controllers enable nearly anyone to rapidly prototype and develop IIoT applications with Node-RED, opening a path to quickly connect legacy physical assets to the digital world of cloud services.
Node-RED for IIoT
“I've been very impressed with the whole Node-RED project,” said Jim Turner, Senior Software Developer at Opto 22. “It's well run, polished, and of high quality, but still very practical and useful. It's been a pleasure to develop for their platform.” At the time of this release, Node-RED has been downloaded from npmjs.org over 25,000 times in the last month.
Lowering the Technical Bar
The Node-RED development environment offers a gradual and easily approachable learning curve for users of all levels and requires few to no programming skills. Instead, Node-RED takes advantage of preprogrammed, reusable code blocks called nodes. These nodes make IIoT application development simpler, easier to repeat, and faster to scale. Through a visual browserbased, drag-and-drop interface, Node-RED allows IIoT application developers to focus on identifying an opportunity and developing a solution, rather than building the components of an application from scratch.
