(English) Ardbox: Water treatment plant – Control tank level

(English) Ardbox: Water treatment plant – Control tank level

This posts presents an application developed with Industrial Shields Ardbox Relay 7.0. In the facilities of a water treatment plant, retrofitting of the existing automated system was required. The control system is responsible to maintain the tank level of water within defined limits. The level can be forced to increase/decrease operating  an available outflow pump. Industrial Shields Ardbox Relay was adopted as the central unit of the control system and it has been has been running flawlessly for several months, providing…

Solar Monitoring System with Ardbox

Solar Monitoring System with Ardbox

Solar panels are popular because they are able to give us energy from light. When the light hits the panel solar conductor, the energy is translated into moving and electrons, creating current. In this newsletter we´ll make a simple monitoring system that you can develop for your home with Open Source Hardware. Hardware Hardware selection depend a lot of your solar panel and its specs (output voltage, power). For this project, we will consider that we have a 5.2 kW…

Control of soil humidity in an irrigation installation

Control of soil humidity in an irrigation installation

This newsletter is really interesting because control soil humidity in irrigation installations makes saving water, time and money.  Continue reading…   Hardware Hardware selection is very important when you try to develop projects where sensors, actuators and PLC´s must talk each other. For this project, with chosen the following equipment: PLC: Any PLC from IndustrialShields is a good option. We have chosen the M-Duino PLC Arduino 21 I/Os Analog/Digital because we think it has different communication options to be communicated…

Controller for your installation based on Open Source hardware

Controller for your installation based on Open Source hardware

Leaders from different companies usually agree in Water will be the oil of this century. Today, as populations increase and water supplies are stretched, we are developing more and more systems to make water at a low cost. We are going to develop a basic water treatment system based on Arduino. The water contained in the tank will be used for an irrigation system. Equipment to be used Water treatment system consists basically of the following elements: An M-Duino PLC:…

Ardbox PLC Arduino based and VFD (inverter) with USB communication

Ardbox PLC Arduino based and VFD (inverter) with USB communication

Resumen Los controladores o drivers de los variadores de frecuencia (conocidos por sus siglas en inglés VFD´s), son muy populares en la industria porqué pueden ajustar el par y la velocidad de un motor eléctrico AC a través de la variación del voltaje de entrada del motor y de la frecuencia. El punto de funcionamiento puede ser enviado desde un PLC y, por lo tanto, desde un ordenador. Esto es justamente lo que vamos a explicar en este post: como enviar…

Chloride Dosing System

Chloride Dosing System

Resumen La fabricación de agua potable es un proceso de diferentes etapas. El último paso se llama desinfección, i su finalidad es destruir los microorganismos en el agua. Para lograrlo, existen los sistemas de inyección de cloro. Esta técnica se llama dosificación. La dosificación es la técnica para controlar la adición de una sustancia a un líquido que fluye o gas. Los sistemas de dosificación están diseñados para lograr el nivel de dosificación requerido por el mantenimiento de la señal de…
