How To Build a Node Red Dashboard
Building a Node Red Dashboard is one of the quickest and easiest ways of monitoring and sending control signals from a web browser.
Too often, organizations adopt technology for technology’s sake. As a result, they do not have a clear strategy that defines what they expect to gain from IIoT.
The best approach is to do what can be done now. Focusing on immediate benefits while laying the groundwork for a fully connected enterprise.
And sometimes that comes in the form of simply giving your decision-makers direct access to plant equipment. As a result, this would allow them to access process status anytime, anywhere, and on any device.
Traditionally, that would require you to outsource the development of a back-end web app or use an OEM platform that locks all the value in.
But today, plant engineers and technicians are empowered to build corporate-wide web-based dashboards. This helps you to aggregate information from sensors using a highly intuitive platform such as Node-Red. Accomplishing in minutes what would otherwise take much longer.
In the video below, I demonstrate how to build a Node Red Dashboard. The demonstration shows the use of the dashboard for monitoring and sending control signals from a web browser.

THE HALF LIFE OF A LEARNED SKILL USED TO BE 30 YEARS. TODAY IT'S 5.
And it will continue to decrease exponentially. The only way to avoid becoming irrelevant is to get in the habit of reinventing yourself every single day.
