How about using Node-Red as a commissioning tool where you don't have SCADA or you don't want to use a "paid" platform to generate the screens? Maybe you don't have access or the ability to work on the customer's existing SCADA?
Using OPC and some dashboard nodes, the status of 6 systems are displayed, where you could watch key aspects and react if some unexpected behavior occurs.
Node-Red is running in Docker on a PC in this example. What if the PLCs (such as the Opto22 groov EPIC) also have Node-Red onboard: could one make a self-aware/dynamic dashboard, where multiple systems could be administered from one browser tab? I wonder how much effort it would take? Something to explore for another opportunity...

SignalFire's ranger now transmits Sensor data over two global communication standards
The SignalFire Ranger is a battery or solar powered LTE-M transmitter, used to power and transmit sensor data. Two global communication standards, HART™ and SDI-12 are now supported.
Expanded features for an already capable device! Contact us for option configuration, integration support and quoting.
Some other noteworthy aspects: C1D2, GPS, MQTT (Sparkplug B) and ready for integration into Ignition. So many possibilities...

Ever use Node-Red to test and demonstrate a solution to a customer?
Here is a quick flow/dashboard I put together to control some SMC proportional valves with a PWM module. Node-Red was running on a Weidmüller controller (u-control 2000 IoT, a very cool device with some interesting features) and through some nodes they provide, you can access whatever I/O slices are attached to the backplane...
The flow is posted here if you are interested: https://lnkd.in/g9dYxvQ
