Ardbox – MDuino Arduino pin

Ardbox – MDuino Arduino pin

This post describes how to gain direct access to Arduino board pins  inside the  Ardbox and MDuino PLCs. This allows to work with the PLCs in the same way as using an Arduino, in other words,  pins at 5V and configurable as input or outpts. Also, this  enables usage of  sensors  working at lower voltages than industrial standards 10V dc/24Vdc.  NOTE:Make sure the voltage DOES NOT EXCEED 5VDC!!!!!!!! Following are listed the connections with direct access to the Arduino board  pins. Ardbox: DE-D7  // RE-D4 // SDA-PIN2  // SCL-PIN3 MDuino: SCL…

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

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…

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…

A Conveyor Belt Control System with an Arduino PLC and a Rasberry PI Panel PC HMI

A Conveyor Belt Control System with an Arduino PLC and a Rasberry PI Panel PC HMI

http://www.industrialshields.com Conveyor belts are very common in industry: we can find them in different industries like mining, food & beverage or chemicals.  They are used to deliver heavy materials from one place to another. In this project we will make a control system based on M-Duino PLC hardware that can be controlled through an SCADA / HMI software for food industry. Introduction The application to be developed must ensure that a conveyor belt works properly: Must verify that the conveyor…

Controlling temperature with a got exchanger through a modulating valve in chemical industry

Controlling temperature with a got exchanger through a modulating valve in chemical industry

Introduction In industrial applications, the need to control temperature is usual. A typical element used and designed with this purpose is the hot exchanger, which interchanges two or more fluids with different temperatures.In this post we are going to explain how to implement a temperature control through a modulating valve that will regulate the amount of steam that enters the hot exchanger, in order to heat the chemical process. To fulfill the specified requirements, Opiron electronics has developed a PID algorithm…
