Create a modular, expandable, configurable and robust boiler monitoring and control system that can be used world-wide. The system must be able to connect to a wide range of external input sources as well as control external devices. Ethernet, USB and modem connectivity are required.
An NXP 32-bit ARM7 processor, multiple Microchip 8-bit PICs, Micro Digital SMX operating system, ANSI C, and the IAR Embedded Workbench were used to create this extendable, robust, highly flexible system.
Tecnova was asked to build the next generation of industrial controllers for a long standing customer. The customer's goal was ambitious – configurable enough to support multiple current product lines as well as future products not yet envisioned.
