INTRO TO ARDUINO MICROCONTROLLERS PART 2

INTRO TO ARDUINO MICROCONTROLLERS PART 2

Welcome to Part 2 of our Intro to Arduino Microcontrollers. Last time we went over the basics of Arduino and some of the different board models that we carry in stock. Today we’ll be going over a couple more of the boards that we have as well as how to get started with programming and coding them. The last two boards we’ll be discussing have some more advanced features then the ones we went over in Part 1, the Arduino Mega and the Arduino Ethernet.

HOW TO CONTROL THE TIMING OF A LINEAR ACTUATORS MOTION

HOW TO CONTROL THE TIMING OF A LINEAR ACTUATORS MOTION

In our latest "How To" post we will be going over how to control the timing of a linear actuators motion using some of our microcontrollers. Microcontrollers give a lot of freedom in motion control and this is just one example of an almost endless amount of motion control options available. For this example we will be using:

HOW TO USE AN ARDUINO WITH LINEAR ACTUATORS

Just recently here at Progressive Automations we have unveiled a new section in our selection of control systems, PLC controls. We've partnered with Arduino in order to bring you the highest quality PLCs on the market and so you can have more control options than you ever thought possible with linear actuators. So what exactly is a PLC?
