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. To learn more, visit Recon Industrial Controls or email [email protected].
