Building panels to demonstrate sensors communicating over Ethernet/IP. Would like to control and visualize the sensors using an HMI. Who can point in a direction to start running down?
It will probably need you to use the
I'd suggest using the
Before you start the Ethernet/IP stuff, get the dashboard side working.
Use either the
chart to display the values (best guess)
Then make a simple bit of code to inject random/nominal values and make sure that works.
The other part is a bit tricky.
BTW: what is HMI?

Have a search on the forum - about a year ago people were asked to put up pictures of their dashboards - that should give you some good ideas.
Likewise if you want inspiration - head over to the home assistant forum - and look for the
To get some inspiration - all of the incoming data in NR can be quite easily fed to HA if you wanted to go that way
