How to connect a Wi-Fi module to Arduino based PLC

On this post it is showed how to connect a WiFi module, ESP8266 WiFi shield on this example, to an Arduino based PLC. With all the Industrial Shields equipment it’s possible to add a WiFi module as ESP8266 WiFi shield. ESP8266 is a cheap and popular WiFi/microcontroller system-on-chip. Furthermore it can be programmed like a normal controller. Actually ESP8266 is a serially-controlled WiFi gateway. It can be configured with AT command, so using the Industrial Shiedls equipment’s UART it’s possible to communicate…

IoT in industry improves reliability equipment. Arduino as PLC application.

Abstract Nowadays, manufacturers need keeping factories running 24×7, and, in order to ensure it, the equipment must be reliable because a failure can cost millions of euros and impact the ability to ship product to customers.   How can IoT help you to increase equipment and minimize unplanned factory downtime? The answer is monitoring factory equipment, quickly, providing maintenance engineers with detailed error message in real time. In this newsletter we will show you an example of how IoT can…
