I have a use for scripting.
I have been building pump control systems for a client and we are adding a lot of systems that work together. I use node-red and mqtt to exchange data.
Right now i have a few screens with the list of the pumps, telemetry readings, and commands. The client can choose any combination of pumps, and i have tables setup where they choose what combos of equipment they are using. I have built over 20 systems that work together with each system having an epic controller. These pages get long and it’s not easy in real life to only use pumps that are sequential, especially when a pump needs maintenance.
With scripting I could conceivably template out the and only show the relevant pumps selected.
I have attached some images so you can see the scope. Excuse the messy panel, I have cleaned it up since.
