Review + new documentation of the Ardbox Analog HF

In this post it will be seen a review of the PLC Arduino ARDBOX 20 I/Os Analog HF Modbus.

The guide of the PLC Arduino ARDBOX 20 I/Os Analog HF Modbus on our website is already uploaded into the 7.1 version. The User Guide now is for the HF version, so it exists now the possibility of taking all the information of the PLC Arduino ARDBOX 20 I/Os Analog HF Modbus from there.

 

It will be shown a little introduction of this product, that shows the main features of it:

Inputs:

      10 inputs:

                  9x Analog (0-10Vdc) / Digital (5-24Vdc), configurable by software.

                  1x Digital PNP (opto-isolated)

                                   The 9x Analog/Digital pins are configurable by software. These pins are named from (I0.1-I0.9). To use it
                                   as  a Digital pin it must be read by the software using DigitalRead(). To use it as analog you need to use
                                   AnalogRead().

 

Outputs:

     10 outputs:

                 10x Digital isolated (5-24vdc)/6x of 10x, PWM (5-24 Vdc), configurables by switch 

                 7x of 10x, Analog 0-10V output, configurables by Switch

                                   The 6x PWM pins are Q0.0 – Q0.6. PWM is the Pulse-Wave-Modultation. It is a modulation technique used to
                                   encode a message into a pulsing signal. 
                                   The 7x Analog are A0.0-A0.6. These pins are shared with the PWM. In the right zone there is a switch to put
                                   these X0.0-X0.6 as digital or analog

                    

Communications

     1x USB Port

                              It is the most common way to talk with the Arduino Board from the computer. It is also by default the fastest way to
                              upload a code into the Arduino. 

    1x RS-485 Half / Full Duplex (Modbus RTU)

                             Using the switch of the right zone it can be configured for a Half or Full Duplex. The difference between this two
                             modes is that the Half Duplex can only speak or listen, one at the same time. Instead the Full Duplex can speak 
                             and listen at the same time. 
                             Modbus is an standard protocol of the Industrial Communication. It is really used because it is been designed for
                             industrial application, it is public, free and it is easy to implement.

   1x I2C

                            is a multi-master, multi-slave, packet switched, single-ended, serial computer bus.  It is widely used for attaching
                            lower-speed peripheral ICs to processors and microcontrollers in short-distance, intra-board communication.

   1xSPI

                            Serial Peripheral Interface (SPI) is a synchronous serial data protocol used by microcontrollers for communicating
                            with one or more peripheral devices quickly over short distances. It can also be used for communication between
                            two microcontrollers.
