Author recently got a small industrial machine which makes little cars toys. This machine is supplied with pneumatic energy (10 BARS) and electrical energy. So he decided to pilot the process with a micro-controller but it’s not really an industrial solution. The reasons for pros and the cons on this french site:
and this one:
The process will be controlled by a special adaptator of my own on which you will be able to connect an Arduino Uno board or an Arduino Mega board (soon in the part 2). The adaptor also includes a possible Atmega644p-1284p connection (clone of arduino board, see one of my past instructables projects). Another skill of the project: to be controlled over ethernet with a cheap Ethernet Shield on a special industrial communication protocol (Modbus TCP).
