My Project Scope is below:
- Count the parts coming out of a therformer
- Display the data on the screen as such
Target : 0000
- Save the data on excel for monthly statistical review
I am thinking about setting up a proximity switch next to the press so that when it comes down the sensor counts up
Send the data from sensor to a programmable digital display with built in PC
Mirror the display to a TV Screen Via HDMI and mount it on the production floor
What I need to know exactly what parts do I need to purchase to complete the set up and whether I need a PLC Controller or can I have this done using another alternative?
I am new to the automation Industry and it appears that I can't find a legitimate consultant who is willing to assist so I have decided to try my luck here. I understand PLC, Java, VBA and C...so if I need to program something in ladder logic I can do it myself I don't think it will be that challenging because its a very simple code...
Thank you in advance!
