Isolated Inputs Ardbox/M-Duino

Isolated Inputs Ardbox/M-Duino

In this post it is described how to use the galvanically isolated inputs in Idustrial Shields PLCs (Ardbox and M-Duino). As shown in the Figure below, isolated inputs always have two available connections and both of these connections need to be wired for a proper performance of the inputs. The configuration if the inputs is PNP. All isolated inputs are DIGITAL,  not ANALOG. Ix.x    –> Signal. Voltage up to 24V (-) Ix.x –> reference or COM of the input signal.   IMPORTANT:…

How to read a digital Input

How to read a digital Input

You can read the data of a Digital Input through: … int myDigital; … void setup() { pinMode (5,INPUT); } void loop() { myDigital = digitalRead(5); } With this piece of code you’ll read the voltage of a PLC pin. As our digital input works between 0-24V, the read value (myDigital) will be a value: 0 or ~24V.   Note: The example pin “5”, is only an example. You need to check in your PLC which pin to use for reading,…

How to read an Analog Input

How to read an Analog Input

You can read the data of an Analog Input through: … int myAnalog; … void setup() {} void loop() { myAnalog = analogRead(A0); } With this piece of code you’ll read the voltage of a sensor. As our analog input works between 0-10V, the read value (myAnalog) will be a value between 0-1023. If the value of sensor is (3V), myAnalog value is 3*1023/10 = 307.
