HMIs Adapt to Reality on the Plant Floor


The Industrial Internet of Things promises to make factories more productive and agile through connectivity, cloud computing and data analysis. This new era in industry relies on a host of tools and technologies, including sensors, actuators, software, low-power wireless networks and device monitoring.

One area within industrial plants that is adapting to these changing dynamics is the human-machine interface (HMI). At its most fundamental level, the HMI allows machine operators to monitor equipment and respond to changes. In recent years, however, it has evolved into a central system enabling data-driven decision-making in an increasingly mobile environment.

In-Building Wireless: The New ‘Imperative element’ for Commercial Property Owners


A multi-tenanted building and a strong cell-signal: two opposite sides of a coin that never meet. Haven’t we all been there, and been there so often? After all, the average American is said to spend 93% of their lives indoors. Of which, only 6% of that is spent in automobiles, and the 87% indoors. That ‘indoors’ comprises our residences, apartments, office towers, corporate buildings, industrial premises, factories, shopping centers, hotels and more. All these places are indoor sites that seem to have everything but In-Building Cellular coverages. When we’re indoors and have a call to make or take, we’re constantly in the hunt for the nearest window so we can pick up on the residual leftovers of the carrier signals. Pathetic, to say the least.

Robots and the Future of Work


McKinsey&Company, tell us that robots will soon be able to do a lot of what we do now. You might fear change, but I embrace it. That’s the world I will live in, I just started University.

It’s important to make things that are able to make other things, just as it was important for our economy to automate agriculture so instead of 40% of us doing working just to feed ourselves, now only 2% of us need to work in agriculture to provide for our food needs.

Data and creativity


This can be seen with data analytics, too often the focus is on ‘what can the data tell us’ but often the interesting information is what can’t be told through data. I find the difference between the layman and the data analyst is that the latter is often noting ‘no, you can’t really infer that conclusion from this data..’.

It’s a different way of thinking, yet being highly aware of all the constraints is often what an expert is. Deep understanding of constraints often leads to ingenious solutions. You only have to walk around the Kennedy Space Centre at Cape Canaveral to see that.

How to have your own VPN


What the hell is a VPN? I already wrote an article explaining VPNs using simple concepts, even comparing VPNs to movie car chases.

But if you want a brief recap, when you connect your computer or phone to a VPN server, you establish an encrypted tunnel between your device and that server. Nobody can see what’s happening in the middle of this tunnel, not even your ISP.

RS-232 Communications


* curated information from The PLC Manual

RS-232 is an asynchronous communications method (a marching band must be “in sync” with each other so that when one steps they all step. They are asynchronous in that they follow the band leader to keep their timing).

We use a binary system to transmit our data in the ASCII format. PLCs serial port is used for transmission/reception of the data, it works by sending/receiving a voltage, With RS232, normally, a 1 bit is represented by a voltage -12 V, and a 0 by a voltage +12 V. (The voltage between +/- 3 volts is considered There are 2 types of RS-232 devices.)

DTE – Data Terminal Equipment and a common example is a computer.

DCE – Data Communications Equipment and a common example is a modem.

PLC may be either a DTE or DCE device.

When plc and external device are both DTE, (or both DCE) devices they can’t talk to each other. The solution is to use a null-modem connection.

Usually, The plc is DTE and the external device is DCE.

Using RS-232 with PLC

Some manufacturers include RS-232 communication capability in the main processor. Some use the “programming port” for this. Others require a special module to “talk RS-232” with an external device.

External device may be an operator interface, an external computer, a motor controller, a robot, a vision system, etc.

To communicate via RS-232 we have to setup:
1. Where, in data memory, will we store the data to be sent?
2. Where, in data memory, will we put the data we receive from the external device?
