Productivity Open P1AM Web Server


We will now look at the productivity Arduino Ethernet web server that we will implement on our Productivity Open P1AM industrial Arduino controller.
Productivity Open P1AM Web Server
This P1AM Web Server Example is based on an example found here. This example uses the productivity open P1AM-ETH shield to create a web server that displays the input values of a P1-08SIM and P1-04THM to a web page. This page is automatically updated every 3 seconds. The IP address of the webserver is set in the Arduino program (Sketch) Entering this IP address in your browser to view the web page. This will display the information from our Arduino P1AM on our web browser. Let’s get started. Continue Reading!

P1AM Industrial Arduino Thermocouple Module


We will now look at the arduino thermocouple module. The productivity open P1AM industrial arduino P1000 thermocouple module can be connected to our P1AM-START1 ProductivityOpen starter kit with Ethernet. We will be programming our arduino thermocouple module using the configuration tool on Github and productivity blocks.
The productivity open P1AM I/O interface chip-set supports the full suite of Productivity 1000 I/O expansion modules. These modules are industry approved and proven in the industrial environment. Modern industrial signal levels for digital and analog inputs and outputs are used. P1000 modules available to you include the following:
• Discrete
• Analog
• Temperature
• Relay
• High-speed Input
• PWM

We will be adding and programming a P1-04THM thermocouple temperature and voltage input module to our P1AM-START1 ProductivityOpen starter kit with Ethernet. This card is very flexible and we will use the configuration tool on Github and productivity blocks. Let’s get started. Continue Reading!

P1AM Industrial Arduino Watchdog Timer


A watchdog is a piece of code that will timeout when an error occurs in our program. It will usually cause the CPU (program/sketch) to stop or reset.

We will now look at the instructions for the watchdog timer in productivity blocks. This includes the Configure Watchdog, Start Watchdog, Stop Watchdog, and Pet Watchdog.

P1AM Arduino P1 Digital Inputs and Outputs 2


In part 1 we added additional discrete digital inputs and outputs modules (cards) to our P1AM-START1 (Industrial Arduino) ProductivityOpen starter kit with Ethernet. A program was then discussed that will print the modules in our system and then set and reset discrete digital inputs and outputs.
P1-16TR – Productivity1000 relay output module, 16-point, 6-24 VDC/6-120 VAC, (16) Form A (SPST) no-suppression, 2 isolated common(s), 8 point(s) per common, 2A/point, 8A/common.
P1-16CDR – Productivity1000 discrete combo module, Input: 8-point, 24 VAC/VDC, sinking/sourcing, Output: 8-point, 6-24 VDC/6-120 VAC, relay, (8) Form A (SPST) relays, 1A/point.
P1-08SIM – Productivity1000 simulator input module, 8-point.

Productivity Open P1AM Arduino Operators


Operators in your Arduino sketches (programs) consist of comparison blocks, concatenate strings, bitwise operators, string conversion, ‘not’ operator, and compound operators. These operations generally will be used with other instructions in your sketch. It is important to understand what instructions are available and what they are designed to accomplish.
Productivity Open P1AM Arduino Operators
We will be looking at each of these instructions that are available using productivity blocks. A sample sketch will be shown that will use some of these operators. The sketch will get a number between 1 and 100 from the built-in Arduino IDE (integrated development environment) serial monitor. It will print the number on the monitor if it is between 1 and 100, else it will print try again. Let’s get started! Continue Reading!
