Prototyping Industrial Control Concept Applications Using MicroPython and the BBC micro:bit.

Dr. Don Wilcher - Watch Now - Duration: 43:13

Automation is being impacted by smaller more efficient programmable logic controllers (PLCs) and programmable automation controllers. With such controllers, mechanical based systems, like conveyors, transfer stations, hydraulic, and pneumatic machines are able to operate at higher efficiency and quality performance. Therefore, how can innovative industrial controllers be implemented to ensure manufacturing processing and methods can be adjusted properly with reliability and accuracy? In this virtual talk, industrial control application concepts using MicroPython and the BBC micro:bit will be explored. The big ideas to be learned in this talk are prototyping methods in the development and validating sensing, detection, and control applications using MicroPython and the BBC micro:bit.

Have you considered or used actual PLC (Programmable Logic Controller) I/O boards to gather some 'complex' I/Os such as RTDs, Thermocouples, Opto-Isolated Discrete Inputs, Relay Discrete outputs, etc. All you need is a MODBUS mode (RS232) and you get all kinds of neat I/Os?
