SimpleComm library to send data through any Arduino Stream

SimpleComm library to send data through any Arduino Stream

This is Industrial Shields library for different PLC’s  With the SimpleComm library you can send data through any Arduino Stream: RS-485, RS-232, Ethernet… It is enough flexible to support different kind of communication typologies: Ad-hoc, Master-Slave, Client-Server… Using an easy to use API. The SimpleCoom library is included on Tools40 library. Reference: SimplePacket encapsulates the data into a packet and provides these functions: setData(data) Fill up the packet with the desired data to send or the received data from a…

PLC- HummTouch RS485/RS232

PLC- HummTouch RS485/RS232

In this post we are going to learn how to send data between Industrial Shields PLCs and HummTouch PanelPc. In order to apply or implement the functionalities and examples described, the PanelPC   HummTouch Linxu/Android is assumed to include the suitable preloaded image. All PanelPC acquired as of 21-08-2015 will include the required image. For those PanelPC  acquired before 21-08-2015 the procedure to install the new compatible image will be provided via email. HummTouch The following chart shows the D37 connector  pinout…

I2C Communication

I2C Communication

In order to communicate through I2C, we have to do two type of programs. We have to create some code for the Master device (PLC in our case), and another piece of code for the Slave devices, such as PLC, or any other device (RTC clock, ADC,…, that has an I2C available port). Master Code: #include <Wire.h> void setup() { Wire.begin(); Serial.begin(9600); delay(500); } void loop() { Serial.println(“Initial”); Wire.requestFrom(2, 1); // request 1 byte from device #2 while(Wire.available()) { char c…

HVAC System activated through an SCADA

HVAC System activated through an SCADA

Introduction As a continuation of the Air-conditioning system post, in today´s newsletter Opiron suggests to expand the HVAC system controlled through the Touchberry Pi Panel PC and Ardbox Relay from IndustrialShields. As the last post, the suggested SCADA that will run on the Touchberry Pi is the following: myscadatechnologies.com Summarizing the previous post, we designed a system that was able to activate the air conditioning with a relay. In order to expand the system, we will include the following sensors to have a complete automatic…

Controlling temperature with a got exchanger through a modulating valve in chemical industry

Controlling temperature with a got exchanger through a modulating valve in chemical industry

Introduction In industrial applications, the need to control temperature is usual. A typical element used and designed with this purpose is the hot exchanger, which interchanges two or more fluids with different temperatures.In this post we are going to explain how to implement a temperature control through a modulating valve that will regulate the amount of steam that enters the hot exchanger, in order to heat the chemical process. To fulfill the specified requirements, Opiron electronics has developed a PID algorithm…
