Professional use of modern web technologies

Since 2012, we have been closely following the transition from classic web applications to modern single-page applications. At the front end, we increasingly rely on Angular for single-page apps.

We develop applications for high end or low end embedded hardware as well as for powerful desktop and mobile platforms. We use either Node.js/Typescript or C++ (with or without Qt) for developing back ends.

Web services

  • Technical feasibility studies of UX interaction concepts
  • Development of system and software architecture
  • Implementation of responsive HMIs
  • Creation of single-page applications with Angular
  • Creation of frameworks and component libraries for product platforms
  • Implementation of application backends with Node.js, NestJS and/or C++/Qt
  • Creation of distributed and scalable server architectures
  • Rest API-design and development
  • Websocket with
  • Data base development

Interoperability with OPC UA

OPC UA is an integral part of industry 4.0. It is an open standard which aims at the frictionless exchange of data and the interoperability of machines and components. Developed in the context of industrial automation, it has since been used in a growing number of industries.

open62541 is a free open source implementation of the OPC UA specification. basysKom is an active distributor and commercial support partner.

In 2015 we initiated 2015 Qt OPC UA with the aim to seamlessly integrate OPC UA services with Qt HMIs.

OPC UA services

  • Consulting and training for OPC UA, open62541, and Qt OPC UA
  • Creation of information models
  • Implementation of client and server applications
  • Development of individual gateways and protocol translators
  • Development and upstreaming of new Qt OPC UA and open62541 features
