HOW TO RESET A PLC USING THE ETHERNET SHIELD

HOW TO RESET A PLC USING THE ETHERNET SHIELD

In this post it will be seen how to configure the Ethernet Shield to allow the user sending a reset via Ethernet, instead of pressing the button manually. This configuration is useful in order to upload an sketch using the Ethernet shield instead of the USB. Tipically the upload is made via USB, in this case the Arduino IDE sends an order to the Arduino shield to reset it. When it is via Ethernet this is not possible by default….

HOW TO WRITE AN ANALOG OUTPUT. ARDUINO IDE

Before writing an analog output it is needed to set the pin as OUTPUT. See the following post to configure a pin. Function to configure a pin as INput/OUTput. Arduino IDE The function for writing in an analog output using Arduino IDE is AnalogWrite().  This function is used to set an analog output from 0 to 255.  On Industrial Shields equipment’s is followed with the corresponding pinout. This functions are normally used inside the loop() function. *With next version of…

Function to configure a pin as INput/OUTput. Arduino IDE

The function to configure a pin as IN/OUT using Arduino IDE is pinMode(). This function is used to configure an Arduino pin as a input or as a output. On Industrial Shields equipment’s is followed with the corresponding Pin-out. This functions is normally used inside the setUp() function. *With next version of Industrial Shields boards won’t be necessary to configure the pins, just selecting the properly board, I/O’s will be automatically configured.    Next is showed the syntax: pinMode(pin, mode);

AN INTRODUCTION TO AZURE IOT SOLUTION

AN INTRODUCTION TO AZURE IOT SOLUTION

Azure IoT Platform is a combination of backend software and databases that are thought to manage devices and applications of a company created by Microsoft. Starting from any kind of  machine and ending in any particular sensor. This platform allows to have everything integrated in the same interface. This way it is really easy to watch everything at real time.   The architecture of this platform is represented in the following photo:     It has a flexible configurability and…
