  1. Click PLC with Analog Sensors and RS-485

    Here is a sample video with a Click PLC. Mainly purchased this because the Click PLC offered RS-485 for some LED signs that I needed to communicate with. Really nice, easy project. My first Click PLC. Free software and super easy to use.

  6. Video - Backstage Pass - Halloween

    For the past four years I have setup a Halloween display at my house for my neighborhood children to enjoy. Each year my total TOTs (tricker-or-treaters) have double to the point last year I had 1500 kids come through my garage for a fully automated Halloween show complete with animatronics air props etc.. Also each year I submit a DVD video in a contest to the Halloween-L people in hopes to win the contest for the USA. I never have won anything but this year I decided to contribute to the technical part of the contest so I video taped myself going over the basics of a MicroLogix 1000 PLC and how I apply my PLC at home for use during my Halloween displays.
    Last year is the last time I will be setting up my display however my legacy lives. I put up a website with videos and pictures of my props from the past three years. You can view or see more information at: http://www.plchalloween.com. Since I won't be returning to the Halloween scene in 2006 I've decided to share my videos I created. I will upload a series of videos to MrPLC.com as I see they can help those that are beginners much like they have helped Halloween-L fans.
    Very soon check in the online store I will release a DVD version of all my How-To-PLC w/Halloween for sale. The DVD will contain hi-quality videos however the low quality videos will remain free for download here at MrPLC.com. I hope you enjoy as I upload videos in the next coming weeks.
    This video contains some backstage stuff.
