Advanced data logging in Node-RED

Posted by Janice Colmer on Mar 24, 2021 1:30:00 PM

This new Node-RED developer video shows you how to do more with your data with CSV logging and file storage.

Welcome back to the world of Node-RED. Video host Terry Orchard just completed a new episode on more advanced ways of logging your data. Rather than just logging to a text file, perhaps you want to change your data to a CSV file and save it to a USB drive on the groov RIO. This video gives you simple step-by-step instructions on how to do just that.

If you've been following our Node-RED developer video series, you've already seen how to set up groov I/O nodes and should be familiar with the storage nodes preinstalled on Node-RED.

Learn how to use a button press from the dashboard along with a change or function node to make this happen. You'll see how Node-RED gives you a lot of power, but selecting the right properties is key. Watch as Terry shows you how.
