    Default Using a PLC HMI to communicate with a pic

    Im wondering if anyone has ever used a HMI that is intended to work with a PLC to communicate bidirectional with a PIC in a control application. I have nothing in mind right now but would like to take some input fron the HMI and send to PIC and then have the PIC send data back to HMI . These HMIs are inexpensive and made for rugged use. I have programmed a few PLCs but never have used a HMI with them so I need to start right from Scratch. I would prefer to use serial as I have very limited experience with USB or Ethernet with the PIC. I do not know what a good HMI to start playing with would be, this company has some very inexpensive ones but i have never seen this brand in use. https://www.anaheimautomation.com/marketing/hmi-plc/human-machine-interfaces.php

    A
    ny help and advice would be greatly appreciatted.

    Thanks
    Geoff

    Pretty darn cool if they could be interfaced with a PIC!

    Hi,

    You can use modbus protocol to communicate between HMI and PIC or if HMI support any serial port protocol you can use one of them.

    I use Nextion and they are good. However, do not expect the same level of help as here on their forum. Just browse through some of their forum posts and you realise what I mean.

    Geoff sorry for the off topic. Modbus protocol was mentioned here. Do someone have some PDS code or explain how it works? Read a lot and understood very little.
    Regards

    Thanks, I looked up the Nextion HMIs and they look just what im looking for and very reasonable priced. Ive downloaded there editor and going to order one in to play with. I see on there site you can buy support tickets. I wondered about why people wouldn't use the forum. Now I know thanks

    Sorry don't know anything about Modbus and thought I was going to have to learn cause a lot of those PLC HMI use Modbus. But Nextion use plain ascii.

    Thanks

    Geoff,

    I did some basic stuff with Nextion. If you encounter problems sending data just let me know. Having said that, I have the early display versions, the enhanced ones seems to be better with newer functions.

    Thanks I appreciate the offer. Lol i looked at a video online it said program a nextion hmi in 30 mins, the video was 6 mins longs. It looked like it was sped up so fast you needed superpowers to decode it. Looks like I have to order from China, Im in Canada
