ACC Automation

In this Covid-19 world, we are continuing to adapt. Social distancing, mask-wearing, hygiene, etc are the way we currently live. Video conferencing with Zoom, Teams, and Google Meet are the norm in business today. Information is knowledge, and everyone more than ever wants to be able to see, control and summarize production data on a regular basis. Open intuitive technologies are available to communicate like never before. Industrial plant data is rapidly changing. Factory 4.0 benefits are being seen and everyone wants to take advantage. We are looking forward to the New Year and new possibilities for implementing your control solution.

Each year we like to take a few minutes and reflect on the past, current, and future of ACC Automation. You have helped us to build the site that you see today through questions, comments, and suggestions. Thank you. Keep on Reading!

Solo SL-SOFT Installation – Temperature Controller Software


All Solo Standard Process Temperature Controllers that support RS-485 serial communications can use the SL-SOFT configuration and monitoring software. This free package will communicate to monitor multiple SOLO controllers using Modbus RTU or Modbus ASCII protocols.

Solo SL-SOFT Installation - Temperature Controller Configuration and Monitoring Software
We will be installing the SL-SOFT configuration and monitoring software package on our Windows 10 PC. Communicating through our Waveshare USB to RS485 adapter, Modbus RTU will be used as the protocol to establish communication. Let’s get started. Keep on Reading!

C-More Drop-Down Menu Create – All Models


The C-More can create a drop-down menu. This applies to all models of the HMI controller. A drop-down is a menu that offers a list of options. The currently selected item in the list is always displayed. When the visible item is selected (touched), other items from the list “drop-down” into view, and the operator can choose from those options.
C-More Drop-Down Menu Create
We will be creating a drop-down menu using a C-More Micro HMI. (Human Machine Interface) This could also be done using the EA7 or EA9 C-More HMI controllers. The EA3-T4CL will be communicating to a Click PLUS PLC. A ladder logic program in the PLC will control the operation of this operator interface drop-down menu. Selecting a question on the drop-down will give an answer on the corresponding Lookup Text display. Let’s get started. Continue Reading!

ACC Automation 2020 Yearly Review
What a difference a year makes! Social distancing, mask-wearing, hygiene, social circles, etc are just a few of the terms we hear every day in this Covid-19 world. Video conferencing with Zoom, Teams, and Google Meet are the norm in business today. Information is knowledge, and everyone wants to be able to see, control, and summarize production data on a regular basis. Technologies are merging and communicating like never before. What was impossible is now possible for the industrial plant floor. We are looking forward to the New Year and new possibilities for implementing your control solution.

P1AM Arduino Modbus TCP to C-More EA9


We will now look at P1AM Arduino Modbus TCP communication to the C-More EA9 Series HMI. This will be communicating Ethernet Modbus TCP protocol. The P1AM will be the server (slave) and the EA9-RHMI the client (master).

We will explain how to connect a headless C-more HMI to our P1AM-ETH Industrial Arduino Ethernet Shield.
The P1AM Example from Automation Direct on GitHub will be used.
P1AM-Examples/tree/master/P1AM-100_ModbusTCP_Server_HMI
We will be using the remote android and windows app to connect to the C-More EA9 HMI. This will display the information from our Arduino P1AM on our headless unit. Let’s get started. Continue Reading!
