19 Oct 2020

 

As PickData, we firmly believe in solutions like Node-RED, because those allow you to focus on what really matters, bring our added value to the solutions. We have gone one step further on the integration of eManager and Node-RED creating customized nodes for each of our expansion modules.

Node-RED eMOD eManager Nodes

Below we detail the first three eManager modules with full integration on Node-RED.

 

8 Signal relays (Datasheet)

eManager’s 8 signal relays module allows to individually manage each relay or to manage all the relays at the same time.

It allows to configure the following features on the Node-RED module:

  1. Set the pulse width for each relay
  2. Activate or deactivate one, some or all the relays
  3. Get the current relays status

10 Digital inputs (Datasheet)

eManager’s 10 digital inputs module allows to individually manage each input or to manage all the inputs at the same time.

It allows to configure the following features on the Node-RED module:

  1. Time to validate a pulse
  2. Get the status for one, some or all the digital inputs
  3. Get the pulse counter for one, some or all the digital inputs
  4. Reset the pulse counters

Furthermore, you will be able to work in polling or event mode. In polling mode, user starts the flow and asks for data when he needs it, while in event mode user configures certain condition when he wants to be notified and it is the module that notifies him when it has been met. Those conditions include an input status change or detecting that a pulse counter limit has been exceeded.

7 Analog inputs and 2 Power relays (Datasheet)

eManager’s 7 analog inputs and 2 power relays module allows to individually manage each input/relay or to manage all the inputs/relays at the same time.

It allows to configure the following features on the Node-RED module:

  1. Configure the analog inputs for current (0-20 mA) or voltage (0-10 V)
  2. Get the current value of one, some or all the analog inputs
  3. Set the pulse width for each relay
  4. Activate or deactivate one, some or all the relays
  5. Get the current relays status

Like the previous model, this module is able to work in polling or event mode. In this case, an event can be triggered when a value is exceeded, an analog variable is in or out of a range, among others combinations.

Combine them to create your IoT application

eManager is more than an IoT controller; eManager is an industrial modular device that allows you to create customized IoT applications in a graphic, fast and simple way.

With eManager and Node-RED you will be able to create an infinity amount of applications, such as relating an analog value to an actuation on a relay, automating an activation of a digital output depending on a pulse counter value, …. You just need to combine digital inputs, analog inputs and relay modules to be able to offer smart solutions perfectly matched with each project needs.

In addition, Node-RED dashboard will allow you to display all the information of your IoT application in real-time.

NB-IoT vs LTE-M, the new IoT king of the 4G world

01 Sep 2020

During the last years, two Low Power Wide Area (LPWA) technologies have grown significantly in the world of the Internet of Things. NB-IoT and LTE-M will compete for the throne of the low bandwidth cellular communications in the coming years.

Why a cloud-based IoT platform is the best strategy for your business

14 Jul 2020

Cloud computing has significantly changed the data management during the last 10 years. Most of the companies have already implemented IoT solutions thanks to the power and reliability of cloud computing. Many people talk about scalability, low maintenance and cost-effectiveness, but cloud is much more than that.

eManager, the modular industrial controller with Node-RED integrated

27 May 2020

eManager is an OEM industrial controller which is equipped with a high-performance control unit with a Linux Yocto embedded. The device includes RS-232/485 serial communications and an Ethernet 10/100 port. Two versions are available, eManager and eManager Pro, with different options of CPU clock, flash storage or RAM memory. Node-RED software tool is integrated on eManager Pro version.

Node-RED, the visual programming tool for Internet of Things

11 May 2020

From the beginning of programming, one of the industry’s main challenges has been to facilitate the applications development to simplify the integration between the hardware devices, the software and us, the humans. Thanks to Node-RED we are much closer of this goal. Programming, without programming.

eMOD, a new concept of customized industrial device without R&D costs

16 Apr 2020

We are manufacturers, and we know the effort, time and costs involved in creating a customized and certified industrial hardware from ground zero. eMOD is a new hardware system that brings a solution to all these needs. We have evolved the modularity concept to enable the creation of fully customized industrial devices without R&D costs.

Advanced comparative analytics to optimize the management of multiple facilities

25 Mar 2020

It is well know that the more facilities you have to handle, the less time you have to manage each one. In addition, when you exceed a number of establishments, hotels or restaurants, you are no longer able to separately analyze each facility. Nowadays it is as much important to capture your installations’ data as knowing how to manage it in an efficient way. This process is based on filtering this data to perform a fast and effective analysis.
