Over the last three years we have completely redesigned our mainstream software products.
Node.js as a foundation with a microservice architecture, Node-RED for ease of adaption to customer requirements and a powerfull NoSQL database for storage. We believe that measuring systems will be overtaken by measuring servers, browser based analysis and reporting and sofware agents for data aquisition.
Dataflow within factoryLog® applications
The following diagram illustrates the flow of data within a factoryLog® application. The green triggers can be signalled by a Node-RED workflow or a script. The light blue elements are microservices. The purple element is one of our agents collecting data and forwarding it automatically. For hardware we have a number of agents for a selection of sensor and plc bus systems.
