The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) has revolutionized how industrial systems and devices are connected and controlled. In the Siemens industrial environment, where efficiency and seamless integration are paramount, Node-RED has emerged as a powerful tool for IIoT applications. Node-RED provides a visual programming interface that simplifies the development of IIoT solutions by allowing engineers to connect and automate devices and services through a flow-based approach. By leveraging Node-RED's capabilities, engineers can easily interface with Siemens PLCs and access tags to collect real-time data, perform analytics, and enable automation in the industrial ecosystem.
