Smart-Factory

On 12th of November in Stuttgart at Fraunhofer IAO (Nobelstraße 12, 70569 Stuttgart, GERMANY) will be held “Open Source / Free Software for Effective Industry 4.0 Meetup”  organized by Nexedi GmbH and hosted by Fraunhofer IAO.

Olimex will present there Open Hardware solutions for Industrial Automation.

 

 

Water Level Switch and submersible water pump for your aquarium or home flowers watering automation in stock!

SNS-WATER-LEVEL

SNS-WATER-LEVEL is floating magnet with reed contact sensor with travel length of 50 mm. It allow you to switch on off small pump which to keep the fluid level constant and to refill it.  You can directly connect to Arduino or ESP32 IoT boards GPIO.

IMM-WATER-PUMP

IMM-WATER-PUMP is silent submersible water pump which can help you to filter the aquarium water or to watering your flowers at home. It works with 3VDC and consume 0.12A.

We got limited quantity from the very first manufactured lot.

Home Automation with Open Source Hardware ARM Linux board A20-OLinuXino and MOD-IRDA+

Image

 

A20-OLinuXino is Open Source Hardware Linux computer. It consumes only 2W of energy but runs Debian Wheezy and basically with it you can do anything you can do with your desktop Linux server/machine.

What makes A20-OLinuXino more flexible than your computer is that it have lot of additional hardware resources which you don’t have on your desktop computer – like GPIO ports, I2C, SPI, UARTs etc.

With the low power of only 2W A20-OLinuXino can run 24/7 consuming less than 1% of what desktop x86 server would take as power consumption.

Another advantage is that with the build-in Lipo charger simple LiPo battery can run the OLinuXino for hours if the mains power supply fail, so no need for expensive server UPS.

This makes OLinuXino perfect choice for home automation board. You can easily attach web camera to USB port and make video surveillance server with backup power supply LiPo battery for instance.

Another nice feature is the UEXT connector which allow different modules easily to be connected to A20-OLinuxino.

Now we will show you what you can do with MOD-IRDA+ module which is IR receiver and transmitter. You can receive and transmit IR remote control commands and thus control other home appliances with IR remote controls like: TVs, Air conditions, Radios, Stereo amplifires, and any other home gadgets with IR remotes.

Combining this to the fact that with OLinuXino you have access to Internet and can drive GPIOs and so on with Web interface makes endless possibilities.

In the video below you can see how you can teach OLinuXino to do things when receive commands by IR remote control and how it can play back captured IR remote control commands:

 

Having all sources you can easily adapt these for your next Home Automation project.

Souliss – Home Automation with AVR-T32U4 + WIFI + MODIO2

Souliss is Smart Home Automation you can learn more for the project at http://www.souliss.net/
On this video you can see AVR-T32U4 running Arduino sketch + MOD-WIFI which adds WIFI connectivity + MOD-IO2 which adds two relays and GPIOs and aplication running on Android phone which controls them.
Great work Dario!
