Good day All,
I want to get into using the AUTOMATION HAT for projects and I have just a basic question about this unit and getting started.
First: I don’t see any documents on if this Unit is AC or DC on the input ports.
I know that ADC can only be DC since analogue signals cant work on AC systems
My plan is to wire Industrial grade Silo monitoring equipment to Rasberry Pi and Pi zero and use inputs and outputs of the AUTOMATION HAT to replace a PLC.
The idea is rather than having a massive and expensive PLC I will use multiple small units accross the Production plant to monitor and control the system. All the components except for the pressure sensor is AC hence my question above.
After that, I’m going to make a program that will receive all the small inputs from the multiple Pi’s and send them using WIFI to a central PC or even another PI for processing and control.
I am new to Hardware monitoring and control but not software.
So I will get back to this post on any ideas and progress.
