MOACON MODULES LIBRARY

RS-ADIN4 AND RS-SADIN6 MODULES

IoT. You can read moacon modules (Modbus communication - cubloc.com) and mcp3208 - 8 channel 12Bit ADC from Rpi 3 and others.

You can install this package by typing the following code in terminal in the rapsberry Pi:

$ sudo pip install IOT_GD

This package include serveral modules:

Module moacon.py: This module contains the folling functions:

OpenSerialfor_Moacon():

This function allows to open a serial port in raspberry pi 3 named ‘Serial0’ and Baud Rate speed at 115200, to communicate well with the In Rpi 3 you have to disable bluetooth device and swippe the serial port. When you execute the following command and you have ‘Serial0 -> ttyAMA0’:

$ ls -l /dev/

CloseSerialfor_Moacon():

This function close the serial connection oppened by OpenSerialfor_Moacon().

RS_ADIN4(Module Number):

This function read the RS-ADIN4 moacon module from Cubloc.com.

  • Module Number: The number of moacon module from 0 to 9 on the device. With a little modification in hardwrare you could read from 10 to 15.

RS_SADIN6(Module Number):

This function read the RS-SADIN6 moacon module from Cubloc.com.

  • Module Number: The number of moacon module from 0 to 9 on the device. With a little modification in hardwrare you could read from 10 to 15.

When data result in each channel is:

  • (-1): probably the channel is damaged.
  • (-2): Probably the data received is incomplete.
  • (-3): It tried to read 3 times and it couldn’t get an answer from the module.
  • (-4): Module is Disconnected. Please verify the connection.

MODPORT MODULES LIBRARY

MD_ADIN4 - 4 Analog Inputs Module Hi Resolution

The AD Input Modules’ inputs are not isolated, so please be sure not to provide voltage or current in excess of the specified ranges. Doing so could cause permanent damage.

The AD Input Modules can be wired to read voltage sources or current sources. When reading voltages sources, the modules can be configured for a 0 ~ 10V range or a 1 ~ 5V range using the dipswitch on the side of the module. When reading a current source (4-20mA), connect a 250 ohms resister across the input terminals.

  • Output Value: 0 to 10.000
  • Resolution: 13.3 bits
  • Precision: 0.1%
  • Convesion Speed: 30 ms per channel

How to use the function:

MD_ADIN4(Module_Number)

Module Number: This is the number of the rotary switch on the face of each module to set its Modbus slave address. It can be from 1 to 15, but directly on the rotary switch you can use from 1 to 10, if you wanna connect 5 more modules (from 11 to 15) you need to make a little simple soldering modification in hardware.

SPI MODULE LIBRARY

ADC with MCP3208

This module let you use the chip ADC MCP3208 which have 8 analog channels to use in differents purposes. Per example, You can connect a LM35 sensor to measure and control the temperature in a close place to control. You can use a different many sensor depending your application. You can measure the voltage, current, humidity and many things more.

Note: You need to add a voltage divider to measure voltages higher than the Vdd Vref

This module use the SPI protocol to send to RPI all measured data.

The module use the function _readadc(n)_ where n is the ADC channel where the sensor is connected. You can use a cycle “for” from n=0 to n=7 if you have connected eight sensors to chip and you want take every measure of these at the same time.

import time
from IOT_GD import mcp3208
if __name__ == "__main__":
  while True:
    channels = []
    for n in range(0, 8):
      data = mcp3208.readadc(n)
      channels.insert(n, data)
    #print channels
    print "----------------------"
    for n in range(0, 8):
      print "channel " + str(n+1) + ": " + str(channels[n])
    print "",
    time.sleep(1)
