Hello everyone, I am new here and quite new to using Arduino also. I took a few courses to gain good knowledge about using Arduino. I'm currently on a project and I want to use Arduino to control the flow through a motorized valve. The logic goes thus:
- The Arduino will have two feedbacks, one for the flow rate (from the flow transmitter), and the other for the position of the motor.
- The Arduino will receive a setpoint from a PLC (Gx works 2) and compute the PID algorithm to adjust the position of the motor for a desired flow rate.
- The PLC will act as a Supervisory control device.
Kindly share ideas on how to go about this. Thanks in anticipation.
