Industrial Arduino based PLC programming with LabVIEW 2
In this post you are going to learn more about working with an industrial PLC from Industrial Shields and the computer application LabVIEW.
We recommend you to read the following posts from our blog before reading this one.
In order to work with the LabVIEW PC application, you will need the following items:
Some electronic components such as wires, leds, resistors, potentiometers, etc.
Arduino IDE Software
Hardware & Software
Most of the inputs and the outputs are connected to the internal Arduino, but in a few cases, the user can choose between a special peripheral configuration or a GPIO by changing the position of the Dip Switches.
Each switch can select only one of the two possible configurations at the same time. For example, in this case we are watching the configuration of an M-Duino 42+ Ethernet industrial controller. If we set the switch to the right position (ON), the digital outputs Q0.5, Q0.6 and Q0.7 will be activated, but if the switch is in the left position (OFF), the analog outputs A0.5, A0.6 and A0.7 will be activated.
In this case, all of the switches have to be in the ON position.
