Re: Can Raspberry Pi 3 use in Industrial?

Checking with original poster to see if he was successful in implementing the project with Pi. I want to do the same but want to make sure if Pi is robust

Re: Raspberry for the Industry

thanks guys...i think im now a bit wary about using PI / Arduino to control a motor. May be sensing is fine, but actuation could be very risky

wow, so you are saying that when it comes to critical applications the Arduino is more reliable than the Pi

Re: Raspberry for the Industry

My application requires turning an AC motor on/off based on feedback from temp/pressure/proximity sensors. MY concern is that since this is a critical process, i want to be very careful. Hence checking if Pi is good for industrial purpose

Re: sensors in Industrial environment

so instead of interfacing the PI with the motor, can i interface it with PLC for turning motor on/Off. We currently have a PLC but its not too intelligent.

Raspberry for the Industry

HI
Is there a model of the Pi to be used in Packaging and process industry available globally. Im thinking of using the Pi B+ but could not find any sufficient cases of the Pi being used in industrial applications. Is there anything lacking in the Pi ?

Re: sensors in Industrial environment

The goal of this project is to use sensors like temp sensor, pressure sensor and photoelectric sensors to control a motor (still not very clear on the specs on the motor. But a relay will do this job based on output of the Pi). The pressure sensor have a max force of 10 kg)

Re: sensors in Industrial environment

my requirement is to insert a temp sensor in a MS heating pad. The temperature range is 0 to 250. Not sure if LM35 /DS18B20 can serve the purpose. But it needs to be long lasting and reliable. one requirement is that if the temp goes below a set temp, then we need to turn off a motor. so the reading...

Re: sensors in Industrial environment

I have temperature , proximity, load and ultrasonic level sensor which will feed data to the pi. from the pi i will stream data via ethernet cable and also operate a relay to turn an AC motor on/off. Not sure whats the best protocol to use I2C, Serial or UART

sensors in Industrial environment

Hello all
I want to deploy some IOT applications in an industrial environment. TO connect sensors to the Pi what type of cables should I use so that I can avoid noise and these should also be long enough (eg 1/2 meters)

Re: Right Sensor for Industrial vibration

Thanks. I want to do condition monitoring of the pump. Under normal circumstances there will be a normal vibration signature. But if there is an issue then the vibration signature will change. Cloud software will detect this change in vibration and alert personnel to take a look. This is the applica...

Right Sensor for Industrial vibration

Hi All
I need to design IOT system for detecting vibration on pumps in an industrial environment and I'm not sure which sensor to use. I have an ADXL345 accelerometer but don't know if it's the best suited sensor for this application.

Please provide your suggestions on this
