Chloride Dosing System

Chloride Dosing System

Abstract Manufacturing drinking water is a process with different steps. The last step is called disinfection, used to destroy microorganisms in water. To achieve it, systems inject chlorine. This technique is called dosing. Dosing is the technique for controlling the addition of a substance to a flowing liquid or gas.  Dosing systems are designed to achieve the required dosing level by maintaining the control signal as a proportion of the fluid flow rate. In this post we are going to…

Developing a packaging machine based on Arduino hardware

Developing a packaging machine based on Arduino hardware

Abstract Packaging machines are used to enclose and protect products for distribution, sale, and use. They are very popular in industry because they are safe, reliable, and usually integrated into the process line. They guarantee a big productivity. In this project, Opiron Electronics will develop a basic packaging machine based on the Open Source Hardware PLC´s from IndustrialShields. System Our packaging machine will have three basic control functions: HMI( the Human Machine Interface), PLC (the logic part of the control), and…

Industrial shields Open Source Hardware Case Study: Air-conditioning system

Industrial shields Open Source Hardware Case Study: Air-conditioning system

  Abstract HVAC systems usually have an available contactor that will allow us to connect a relay. Connecting the relay to an Ardbox Relay PLC, and the PLC to the Touchberry Pi, we will be able to control climate conditions remotely. In this project, Opiron Electronics proposes to make a basic control system with an interface that will enable us to activate the HVAC system remotely with the Ardbox Relay PLC and the Touchberry Pi HMI, both from IndustrialShields. The purposed SCADA…

Arduino Applications – Using Arduino as an Industrial PLC

Arduino Applications – Using Arduino as an Industrial PLC

Ardbox is an Arduino based PLC for Industrial use.  Most of the industry sensors work at 24 Vdc. As the standard ARDUINO works at a voltage of 5Vdc and 3.3Vdc depending on the different devices this in principle makes impossible its usage on industrial environments. This is the main reason why Industrial Shields has adapted the Arduino Industrial original electronic in order to let them work at 24Vdc and it has also has made sure that it meets all the requirements and industrial…
