Industrial Wireless Sensor Configuration

Industrial Wireless Sensor Configuration In this article we will learn how to configure the ncd.io industrial wireless sensor, to configure these sensors you will need a wireless receiver and a computer. You can configure these sensors simply by sending uart commands, so if you are trying to this using a desktop computer you will need a USB to the wireless adapter. If you are using it with IOT computers like article photon, electron, onion omega, raspberry pi, in that case, you can connect the wireless receiver directly with the available uart. You can find all the necessary hardware on ncd.io.

How to Convert 4-20mA Current Loop to Voltage/Digital Conversion

How to Convert 4-20mA Current loop to Voltage/Digital Conversion Whats 4-20mA current Loop and How 4-20mA Current Loop Sensor Work and why 4-20mA is a standard. There are few reasons behind this. 4-20mA current loop is a very old technique to read sensors and at that time the chips which are used to read pressures or any other data used to consume 3mA. This is a two-wire protocol so the current has to be greater than 3mA to make it work then the second question comes up in the mind, why they started with 4mA while they could have started

Reading 4-20mA Current Loop Sensors using Arduino

Reading 4-20mA Current Loop Sensors using Arduino Reading 4-20mA current loop sensors using Arduino is much easier than you might think.  Follow this simple guide and we will show you a few tips to make it fast and easy. 4-20mA current loop is most common and widely used communication method in an industrial environment. This 4-20mA current loop interface is also known as 2 wire interface technology. Despite being one of the oldest industry standards a lot of users have difficulty understanding the working of this technology. This 4-20mA current loop technology is used in temperature sensors, pressure sensors, current sensors, distance sensors, magnetic field

Monitor Industrial 4-20mA Sensors with Onion Omega

Interfacing Onion Omega with Industrial 4-20mA Sensors

Interfacing Onion Omega with Industrial 4-20mA Sensors The Onion Omega 2 is one of my favorite SBCs. It’s small and comes with a ton of power. There are so many neat and interesting projects that can be done with this computer. In this guide, I will show you how to use the Onion Omega with 4-20mA industrial sensors. About 4-20mA Sensors 4-20mA sensors are a powerful communication standard, commonly found in industrial applications.  4-20mA sensors use current variations to send data.  Current variations can travel long distance because current does not decay over distance. Why is 4-20mA the Standard Current Range?
