7" Panel PC

Introduction

This Industrial Panel PC for industrial monitoring is based on GNU/Linux (Raspbian/Ubuntu) OS installed on an SD card. It has many built-in interfaces like Ethernet, USB or WiFi

Using the Ethernet port or WiFi network, you can remotely control all parameters, data and inputs/outputs of your control system. Furthermore, Touchberry PI panel pc control comprises enough I/Os to replace PLCs in simple automation applications.

Open protocols not only allow communication with other Industrial Shields' PLCs for industrial automation, but also with third-party devices and machinery.

So, let's learn how to configure and program your inputs and outputs for optimal industrial control!

Configuration


The 7" Raspberry Pi Panel PC has 10 inputs and outputs as configurable as you want. So, for example, you could use 3 as inputs and 7 as outputs, or 2 as outputs and 8 as inputs, and so on.

In this case, you are going to configure your industrial Panel Pc with 5 as inputs and 5 as outputs.

First of all, turn the industrial touch screen upside down and unscrew the 4 screws to open the hmi industrial panel pc. Then, configure each IO jumper as you want, IN or OUT. In the example below, you can see a jumper picture configured as output:

 After setting the jumper configuration of your industrial panel pc, let's connect the inputs to the outputs: 

Jumper configuration

And also wire up a cable from the power supply to GND. And another one to Vdc. Finally, configure the last ViN jumper under the IOs section, like this:

Once your industrial panel PC is configured correctly, let's test it with a Node-RED dashboard. So, just make sure that your industrial Panel Pc in powered on, and just type the IP address in your browser like:

Go to the menu on the right, click on Import > Import from clipboard, and paste the following flow:
