The edge controller sysWORXX CTR-700 supports classic programming languages such as C/C++, C#, Java and OpenPCS (according to IEC 61131-3) as well as graphical programming in Node-RED. The nodes created by SYS TEC electronic allow the inputs and outputs of the sysWORXX CTR-700 to be addressed directly from Node-RED. In addition, data exchange with OpenPCS, i.e. the IEC 61131-3 Runtime, is supported at variable level. This allows, for example, a dashboard created in Node-RED to be used as a GUI for the PLC program.
