HOW TO WRITE AN ANALOG OUTPUT. ARDUINO IDE

HOW TO WRITE AN ANALOG OUTPUT. ARDUINO IDE

Before writing an analog output it is needed to set the pin as OUTPUT. See the following post to configure a pin. Function to configure a pin as INput/OUTput. Arduino IDE The function for writing in an analog output using Arduino IDE is AnalogWrite().  This function is used to set an analog output from 0 to 255.  On Industrial Shields equipment’s is followed with the corresponding pinout. This functions are normally used inside the setup() function. *With next version of…

Function to configure a pin as INput/OUTput

Function to configure a pin as INput/OUTput

The function to configure a pin as IN/OUT using Arduino IDE is pinMode(). This function is used to configure an Arduino pin as a input or as a output. On Industrial Shields equipment’s is followed with the corresponding Pin-out. This functions is normally used inside the setUp() function. *With next version of Industrial Shields boards won’t be necessary to configure the pins, just selecting the properly board, I/O’s will be automatically configured.    Next is showed the syntax: pinMode(pin, mode);

AN INTRODUCTION TO AZURE IOT SOLUTION

AN INTRODUCTION TO AZURE IOT SOLUTION

Azure IoT Platform is a combination of backend software and databases that are thought to manage devices and applications of a company created by Microsoft. Starting from any kind of  machine and ending in any particular sensor. This platform allows to have everything integrated in the same interface. This way it is really easy to watch everything at real time.   The architecture of this platform is represented in the following photo:     It has a flexible configurability and…

AN INTRODUCTION TO PROVIEW

AN INTRODUCTION TO PROVIEW

ProView is an Open Source Process Control System which is commonly programmed graphically. This graphical interface provides a very intuitive, easy and fast-programming. It can also be programmed with high level languages such as C, C++, Java or FORTRAN. It is the first Open Source Process Control System that can work with oriented objects. So it is directly programmed with simple function blocks and simple signals. A typical Proview system consists of one process control system and one or more operator…

An introduction to Node-Red

An introduction to Node-Red

Node-Red is a programming tool for wiring together hardware devices, APIs and online services in new and interesting ways. It is very intuitive, easy and fast-programming. It is an excellent tool for working graphically. It is programmed with a browser-based flow editing. The strong point is that it allows to interact data from a software, hardware(like Arduino) using different protocols (like TCP) to a software/hardware. It is able to wire nodes, generate functions to process the data and much more interesting…

Software for IoT solutions

Software for IoT solutions

On this post it is showed different software that can be used as a IoT solutions with the Industrial Shields equipment. Firmata: Firmata is a protocol to communicate between Microcontroller (as Arduino) from software on a Computer (as can be a Panel PC). This protocol can work as a firmware on any Microcontroller architecture, also as software on any computer software. On Industrial Shields case with firmata you can use the Panel PC or a Computer as a Client, and a…
