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).
