W&T rule.box Digital:

Use the Node-RED based switching center to put your IoT puzzle together

Wiesemann & Theis GmbH introduces the "rule.box Digital 2xIn, 2xOut" as a switching and data center for DIN rail mounting.

The system is based on an ARM-Linux platform proven in industrial use and offers a ready-to-use Node-RED installation for graphical development of IoT and Industry 4.0 applications. To make linking sensors and actuators simple the device is equipped with two digital in- and outputs each. By using corresponding processing nodes the inputs can for example trigger messages, be represented on a dashboard or initiate other actions. The outputs can also be shown on the dashboard, switched from there or used for local alarm sending.

In addition to the Node-RED base nodes the development environment also includes W&T expansion nodes for integrating Web-IOs, Web Thermometers and Com-Servers. IoT devices, protocols and clouds from other manufacturers can be supported by installing additional nodes. This enables use as a universal switching center for the control cabinet.

The rule.box Digital 2xIn, 2xOut is available now for commercial customers at a net price of 498.00€ and can be tested for 30 days at no charge. For more information go to www.wut.de/57920.

Wiesemann & Theise GmbH was founded in 1979 by Reinhard Wiesemann and Rüdiger Theis. Fifty employees produce microcomputer and network technology at the company’s headquarters in Wuppertal, Germany. In 2001 Wiesemann & Theis introduced the Web Thermometer, the first industrial temperature sensor with a network interface, and can look back over more than twenty years of experience in the fields of Industry 4.0 and the Internet of Things.
