Description

ModbusRTU and ModbusTCP examples with the Arduino Uno and ESP8266

Introduction to PLC programming with OpenPLC, the first fully open source Programmable Logic Controller on the Raspberry Pi, and Modbus examples with Arduino Uno and ESP8266

PLC programming is very common in industry and home automation. This book describes how the Raspberry Pi 4 can be used as a Programmable Logic Controller. Before taking you into the programming, the author starts with the software installation on the Raspberry Pi and the PLC editor on the PC, followed by a description of the hardware.

You'll then find interesting examples in the different programming languages complying with the IEC 61131-3 standard. This manual also explains in detail how to use the PLC editor and how to load and execute the programs on the Raspberry Pi. All IEC languages are explained with examples, starting with LD (Ladder Diagram) over ST (Structured Control Language) to SFC (Special Function Chart). All examples can be downloaded from the author's website.

Networking gets thorough attention too. The Arduino Uno and the ESP8266 are programmed as ModbusRTU or ModbusTCP modules to get access to external peripherals, reading sensors and switching electrical loads. I/O circuits complying with the 24 V industry standard may also be of interest for the reader.

The book ends with an overview of commands for ST and LD. After reading the book, the reader will be able to create his own controllers with the Raspberry Pi.

      Modus RTU/TCP on raspberry pi ?

      Du coup on peut faire du Modus RTU/TCP sur raspberry pi via l'interface PLC ladder ?

      A nice book to read

      It was a very nice book to read, well written and very nice to work through the examples on a raspberry pi.

      PLC Programming

      Having retired from PLC programming and wanting to get knowledge of the Raspberry Pi this seemed the ideal option. It didn`t disappoint as it doesn`t assume I already have knowledge of the RPi and fully explains how to set up. Excellent book.

      Great book, great author

      Can`t say enough good things about the book and especially the author and his support. I`ve buried him in inquiries and questions as I progress thru the book and build the boards, and he`s always more than willing to help. Definitely above and beyond compared to most authors. A real asset to the Elektor family!
