SmartPID one platform: multiple applications

SmartPID is not a simple controller or themostat, is more an “open platform” powerful and flexible where the resources and I/O can be used for different applications, different environments and integration. My idea is to develop an ecosystem of “vertical” applications on top of a common set of features the first two applications developed are:[…]

SmartPID @ Maker Faire Rome

SmartPID as you know has been designed and engineered with “maker” philosophy in mind , it’s a platform thought for the DIY enthusiast and geek , open to be integrated in many different applications , programmable inside the Arduino ecosystem For that reason I decide to participate to “call for maker” for the Maker Faire[…]

Smart Homebrewing application is ready !

  Happy to announce after 2 weeks from SmartPID launching  that the second application on top of the SmartPID platform is nearly ready and is completely dedicated to home brewing process automation What is new and different compared to the standard basic application (smart thermostat)?   Substantially Smart Home Brewing App adds to a standard[…]

SmartPID configuration example

As we have described in the post “flexible configuration and setup” trough HW set up SmartPID can be adapted to mange different applications below some example to illustrater the flexibilty   Single channel – PID (on/off) control mode – heating + pump   SmartPID reads temperature from 1 probe and drive the heating element in[…]

SmartPID flexible configuration and setup

The SmartPID controller has been designed to replace low cost simple thermostat with a smart controller that can be programmed and adapted to any process. The controller board has some unique HW and SW features that allow to configure it in an incredible variety of environment with total flexibility DUAL channel The controller support 2[…]

SmartPID desgin concept

When I start designing the SmatPID I try to capture some requirements and functionalities that are actually not present in low cost thermostat and are more typical in the professional control device (PLC) but at the same time I put lot of effort to keep it simple, accessible, affordable for a consumer market and DIY[…]
