I'm building a web page that will show information about an article that is being handled in an industrial application. My thought is to catch when a new article is scanned at the station, and send an URL to a browser.
The scanner is connected to a PLC, I have the node red s7 packet and confirmed that i can pick up data from DB's in the PLC. When New_Scan != Old_Scan I want to send the article number in an URL to the browser, say 192.168.0.100/SiteName/ArticleInfo?ArticleNumber=xxxxxxx. This info will be on a screen at the station with no input method.
I'm new to Node-Red and not quite sure how to make the connection between the node red server and the browser though.. Is this possible to do in any way? I'm thinking I'll run the server and browser on a RPi stuck to the station screen, since it will only be the one client.
Appreciate any help.
