For the first time, Microcontrol (Germany) exhibits its Node-RED programmable CANopen host controller at the SPS 2019 in Nuremberg, Germany in hall 5, stand 406.
At the SPS 2019 Microcontrol is presenting another dimension of practical technology for its CANopen host controller µMIC.200: the company provides µMIC control units equipped with the Node-RED open source software, as reported here. Compared with the usual C/C++ programming used so far, this solution offers advantages such as a graphic user interface for intuitive programming, connection to IoT (Internet of Things) cloud services / industry 4.0, results for prompt application, as well as immediate usability of the control unit - without any additional local software installation.
Also, more complex specifications can still be realized with C/C++ programming. This complementary option will give the user the flexibility to adapt to changing future requirements. The C/C++ libraries and applications can be integrated in Node-RED.
The CANopen host controller also features temperature resistance from -40 °C to +85 °C, a metal casing, battery-less memory (FRAM), battery-backed real-time clock, in-house production and logistics, as well as real-time Linux operating systems (Ubuntu LTS).
