Learn the fundamentals of PLCs and how to control them using Ardui software to create your first Ardui PLC. You will learn how to draw Ladder Logic diagrams to represent PLC designs for a wide variety of automated applications and to convert the diagrams to Ardui sketches. A comprehensive shopping guide includes the hardware and software components you need in your tool box. You will learn to use Ardui UNO, Ardui Ethernet shield, and Ardui WiFi shield. Building Ardui PLCs shows you how to build and test a simple Ardui UNO-based 5V DC logic level PLC with Grove Base shield by connecting simple sensors and actuators. You will also learn how to build industry-grade PLCs with the help of ArduiBox. What You'll Learn * Build ModBus-enabled PLCs * Map Ardui PLCs into the cloud using NearBus cloud connector to control the PLC through the Internet * Use do-it-yourself light platforms such as IFTTT * Enhance your PLC by adding Relay shields for connecting heavy loads Who This Book Is For Engineers, designers, crafters, and makers. Basic kwledge in electronics and Ardui programming or any other programming language is recommended.
