  • Headach = Arduino + PLC;

    For my college’s open house I made an Arduino send serial commands to a Siemens s7-200 that in turn controls a thyristor firing unit to control the speed of a DC shunt motor.

I found one i liked made it up and was fairly happy with it so i went to the check out process. First its all good select yo ...
