Hardware/Software Creates Unique Interfaces For IoT

Recon Industrial Controls’ software and hardware product is said to empower users to create rich graphical interfaces for remote IoT or local measurement and control applications.  A drag-and-drop panel builder and graphical programming environment allows one to easily build an interface and create the operating logic for any project.  A USB connected Breadboard Experimentor circuit board provides the measurement and control link.

The product’s Measurement Wizard lets users choose from a built-in database of over 500 commercially available sensors to automatically configure sensor configurations.  The wizard will further present circuits with component values for voltage and current measurements.

The Breadboard Experimentor incorporates a solderless breadboard to build interface circuitry to sensors or output devices.  The on-board LabRecon chip provides many I/O options including eight 12-bit analog, frequency, and digital inputs.  Outputs include PWM, servo, frequency, and stepper motor signals.  Pins can also be configured to support 24-bit ADCs, 12- or 16-bit DACs, and port expanders. As an alternative to the Breadboard Experimentor, LabRecon chips are available in DIP packages, which provide the same I/O functionality.

The software's graphical programming feature uses drag-and-drop functions, which can be wired together to add analysis and control functionality to a project.  Algorithms can be further expanded using the code link interface to text-based languages such as Python, Java, C#, Visual Basic, etc.

LabRecon also offers a server to allow access of the created GUI by computers or mobile devices.  Furthermore, emails and text messages can be sent periodically or upon events.  The server also includes a MQTT broker to allow MQTT clients to share data with the software.
