The Rule Editor is a graphics programming tool based on the IBM Node-RED Tool. It connects nodes to a program (flow). Node-RED offers a large selection of basic library blocks that can be extended by adding additional libraries. So that hardware, services, and interfaces of IoT devices can be easily monitored and controlled. For Climatix IC, intelligent preset Siemens function blocks are supplied with the Alarm dashboard for intelligent alarm handling.
Nodes: Predefined functions blocks selected from one or more libraries.
Flow: Link of multiple nodes to become a program function. A simple flow forwards, for example, information from input 1 to output 1. A programming function can be extended to any level of complexity.
Data storage for flows
The data for flows is stored to the Siemens Cloud, at the applicable area of the tenant. This separation ensures that a tenant only has access to its data.
