Networking is done in RS232, RS422, RS423 and RS485 are serial communication methods for computers and devices. RS232 is without doubt the best known interface, because this is used on almost all computers available today. But some of the other interfaces are certainly interesting because they can be used in situations where RS232 is not appropriate. RS232 is an interface to connect one DTE, data terminal equipment to one DCE, data communication equipment at a maximum speed of 20 kbps with a maximum cable length of 50 feet. One of the main problems with RS232 is the lack of immunity for noise on the signal lines. The transmitter and receiver compare the voltages of the data- and handshake lines with one commo

Fieldbus is the name of a family of industrial computer network protocols used for real-time distributed control, standardized as IEC 61158.

 


A complex automated industrial system — such as manufacturing assembly line — usually needs a distributed control system—an organized hierarchy of controller systems—to function. In this hierarchy, there is usually a Human Machine Interface (HMI) at the top, where an operator can monitor or operate the system. This is typically linked to a middle layer of programmable logic controllers (PLC) via a non-time-critical communications system (e.g. Ethernet). At the bottom of the control chain is the fieldbus that links the PLCs to the components that a

Definition of a Servo System
Posted On: 06 September 2015 | By:IPCS

60blog.png

Electronic motion control is a multi-billion-dollar industry. Servo motion is a fraction of that industry, sharing it with non-servo motion, such as stepper motors and variable-frequency systems. A servo system is defined here as the drive, motor, and feedback device that allow precise control of position, velocity, or torque using feed-back loops. Examples of servomotors include motors used in machine tools and automation robots. Stepper motors allow precise control of motion as well, but they are not servos because they are run "open-loop," without tuning and without the need for stability analysis. The most easily recognized characteristic of servo motion is the ability to control position with rapid response to changing commands and

Infrared thermography (IRT), thermal imaging, and thermal video are examples of infrared imaging science. Thermographic cameras usually detect radiation in the long-infrared range of the electromagnetic spectrum (roughly 9,000–14,000 nanometers or 9–14 µm) and produce images of that radiation, called thermograms. Since infrared radiation is emitted by all objects with a temperature above absolute zero according to the black body radiation law, thermography makes it possible to see ones environment with or without visible illumination. The amount of radiation emitted by an object increases with temperature; therefore, thermography allows one to see variations in temperature.

The smallest but powerful piezo-ydraulic actuator. Although it is only about nine cm long, it can apply a force of more than 150 newton - equivalent to a weight of 15 kilograms. Such actuators are used to operate valves and flaps, for example, and can also be employed in robots. The concept combines piezo mechanics with hydraulics. A voltage causes tiny deflections in a piezoelectric crystal and an internal hydraulic system combines these small movements to generate a rise of two centimeters. Purely electromagnetic actuators loose efficiency if they are very small. Another advantage of the new actuator is its metallic enclosure, which ensures that all of the required hydraulic fluid is contained in the system so that the actuator only ha

Modern automation technology increasingly integrates internet technologies with Ethernet-based PLCs , for example, direct access to the PLC system via the intranet. During the test and commissioning phase, the commissioning engineer wants to have flexible access to the CPU; individual data are to be visualized during operation for diagnostic purposes: For access mechanisms via the internet or intranet it is reasonable to use already existing standards such as the http technology, standard web browsers and common "languages" such as HTML or JavaScript. SIMATIC CPUs with PROFINET interface provide the opportunity to access variables of the CPU with the help of web pages provided by the system. The integrated web server of the S7-CPU is acc

AUTOMATIC SOLAR TRACKING SYSTEM USING PLC & SCADA
Posted On: 23 October 2014 | By:IPCS

32blog.jpg

The solar tracker is used to orient various payloads toward the sun in order to trap the energy to the maximum extent. Payloads can be photovoltaic cells, reflectors, lenses or other optical devices. This tracker circuit finds the sun at dawn, follows the sun during the day, and resets for the next day. Here the payload is a Solar Photo Voltaic Panel. Sunlight has two components, the "direct beam" that carries about 90% of the solar energy, and the "diffuse sunlight" that carries the remainder .The diffuse portion is the blue sky on a clear day. As the majority of the energy is in the direct beam, maximizing collection requires the sunlight to fall straight onto the panels as long as possible. This is where the tracker comes. The tracker i

Communications between deaf mute and a normal person have always been a challenging task. The project aims to facilitate people by means of a glove based deaf mute communication interpreter system. The glove is internally equipped with five flex sensors, tactile sensors and accelerometer. For each specific gesture, the flex sensor produces a proportional change in resistance and accelerometer measures the orientation of hand. The processing of these hand gestures is in Arduino. The concatenation of letters to form words is also done in Arduino. In addition, the system also includes a text to speech conversion (TTS) block which translates the matched gestures i.e. text to voice output
