Oktopod Studio – Development Tools for Mechatronics, Robotics and Automation.

Oktopod Studio is a development platform for mechatronics, robotics and automation, which enables creating and controlling low voltage electronic devices, models and home applications /in an extremely simple way/.

Oktopod_Board presents a Programmable Logic Controller (PLC), which features plug and play inputs and outputs for connecting low voltage electronic devices, like: LED lights, DC & servo motors, electromagnets, switches, photo, temperature and magnetic sensors, and so on.

SCHEMA-ELETTRICO-500x478

By Christian Granvillano @ open-electronics.org:

Today we’ll explain how to exploit the potential of Arduino as a programmable logic controller, connecting it to appropriate interfaces for I/O.

The PLC (Programmable Logic Controller) has been and still is the basic component of the industrial automation world. The Industrial application made the PLC systems being very expensive, both to buy and repair, and also because of the highly specific skills requested to software designers to extract the maximum potentials from controllers. Arduino is a kind of universal programmable controller, although it is only the “core” and in any case it has been built for general applications; with a little of external hardware (essentially interfaces capable of transferring signals from sensors and to actuators, reducing the EMI which may damage the microcontroller) and an appropriate software may, however, become something very similar to a PLC.

The project called LINSEM is a small programmable device (similar to PLC) with 4 inputs, 4 outputs and full development system running under Windows. You can write and test a simple program, with debug feature, then store such program in the device non-volatile memory and then, every time device powers up, your application starts autonomously. There is a section (in English) for details about the language sintax

From Hackaday:

Each coil is driven by a dedicated relay, and a PC power supply feeds the system juice, while a programmable logic controller does the work. Since it’s just a matter of triggering the coils in order, the PLC could be easily replaced by a micro controller. [via]
