rule.box USB

Monitor and control using Node-RED

Realize automation tasks with the pre-installed graphical development tool Node-RED. Determine the data flow between input, output and processing nodes by dragging connections in the browser-based editor. The USB interface of the rule.box lets you connect HID devices, USB serial converters and storage media. The linked data are then available in your application via Node-RED. Using pre-installed nodes you can read and control Web-IOs, Web Thermometers and Com-Servers made by Wiesemann & Theis. The wide range of available pre-installed nodes enables both expansion of the processing functions and linking devices from other manufacturers. The rule.box processes the flows reliably and using little power. Integration of non-public nodes is also possible on request.
