Is it possible to integrate the D1 into a higher-level control system?
Yes, that’s possible. The available communication interfaces make connecting to a higher-level industrial control system such as a PLC or an industrial PC very easy.
But not only that … the D1 works just as well with microcontrollers like an Arduino or single-board computers like the Raspberry Pi. Thus, the D1 is also well prepared for IOT projects.
Here is a small list of control systems with which applications have already been implemented.
Depending on the customer’s requirements, digital inputs/outputs, cycle/direction signals, analogue inputs,
CANopen or Modbus TCP (gateway) were used as communication interface between D1 and higher-level control.
