Re: Raspberry pi 3 ETHERCat

Hi, Ethercat Master is possible on the eth0 without any additional hardware - even with distributed clocks - then a rt_preempt patch is needed. https://store.codesys.com/codesys-control-for-raspberry-pi-sl.html or https://store.codesys.com/codesys-control-for-raspberry-pi-mc-sl.html the multicore ve...

Hi,
this works only on the real PI hardware...

Re: PLC and Raspberry PI 3 B

Hi, correct me if I'm wrong. the first request was - share symbols / or data between the CODESYS plc and the PI ( both are running on the same PI?!) So there is no additional OPC server needed only either OPC UA or shared memory. The OPC UA server is embedded in the CODESYS plc runtime and is theref...

Re: PLC and Raspberry PI 3 B

Hi, you mean you you want to share data between the CODESYS plc and some other applications which are running on the PI? OPCUA is not a bad option do do this. You could use a python client to access the symbols in the CODESYS plc. For me VNC running on the PI is a good option to do the HMI stuff fro...

no pc is needed... you could control everthing from PI.
PC is only needed to do the application once - download it to the PI and then everything is running on the PI.
You could connect a mobilephone to push buttons or use Raspberry PI LCD and do the hmi on this..

Re: profibus on Raspberry pi

Hi,
it does but you need additional hardware:
You Need to use ethercat with EK1100 coupler and EL6731 - profibus master and profibus slave is possible
to use.
So Pi could finally act as profibus master or profibus slave that way.

Hi, sure you could use any Beckhoff Analog Input terminal (or any other manufacturer of this industrial slave devices) for doing this.

an example how to access the plc variables by a OPCUA Client written in python.
(Either running on the same Pi as the plc or running on an remote Pi, both is possible)

Re: Home temperature monitoring

Hi,
for me a good option was to use the ruuvi tags (https://tag.ruuvi.com/)
temp/huminity collecting via bluetooth on Pi Zero W.
Main benefit is:
No wiring needed ;)
There is a python lib available to read them.
