Productivity Open P1AM Industrial Arduino Math

Math instructions in your Arduino sketches (programs) consist of arithmetic operations, compound operators, absolute, power, square root, sin, cos, tan, random, map and constrain. These instructions will be generally used with other instructions in your sketch. We will be looking at each of these instructions that are available using productivity blocks. A sample program will … Read more

P1AM Industrial Arduino GPIO Inputs and Outputs

The P1AM-GPIO is an industrial rated shield for the P1AM-100 Arduino system. It provides a connection from most of the P1AM-100 GPIO pins to the front 18 position terminal block connector. We will be looking at the wiring and programming of this input and output industrial rated shield that mounts on the left side of … Read more

Productivity P1AM Arduino Variables Data Types

We will look at Arduino variables data types that can be used with our P1AM unit. Data types in the C++ language are used to determine the variable or function applied for the given type. The type will determine the size of the storage (bits), and the method to interpret the information. Microprocessors can only … Read more

P1AM Industrial Arduino Program Structure

We will now look at the P1AM industrial Arduino program structure. The P1AM-100 industrial controller is programmed with the Arduino IDE (Integrated Development Environment). The arduino IDE will allow us to write sketches (programs). These sketches have basic common elements like setup and loop. We will be looking at these elements in our first program … Read more
