Smarteh's MC8

Smarteh sells an affordable Beremiz based PLC named MC8.

MC8 comes with a ready to use Windows installer including Beremiz, Yagarto toolchain, and appropriate USB drivers to connect your PC to the device. A companion tool named LPC-Composer helps in assembling I/O modules from the catalog intuitively, and update available located variables in PLC program instantaneously.

MC8 implements an efficient bare metal C runtime, including TCP Modbus server, CANopen (with CanFestival ) as well as simple HTTP server.

Nucleron R&D LCC (Russia/Perm), NUC-2xx

Nucleron has developed YAPLC platform which is a set of Beremiz extensions called YAPLC/IDE and a bare metal PLC runtime system called YAPLC/RTE. The company has a GitHub account where you can find the platform.

They also offer YAPLC based product line of four progammable relays (NUC-242, NUC-243, NUC-247, NUC-251) which may be programmed with a serial connection cable (NUC-246).

    Armadeus boards

    Armadeus systems develops and produces low-cost CPU boards with embedded Linux combining small size with low energy consumption and extended connectivity.

    Armadeus boards come with full Linux development environment using Buildroot. Xenomai has been tested on some armadeus-board with success. Beremiz is proposed as packages and can be integrated on boards.

    If hard real time with very low latency are required, the on-board FPGA can be used.

    Armadeus Project is also an active community with mailling-list, irc channel ( irc:// and wiki to help development.

    STM32Discovery boards

    Nucleron's repositories on github (current maintainer Paul Beltyukov) have support for STM32Discovery boards.

    Open Software Platform for Automation

    Under a government-funded project, SSLab and RTES lab are cooperating with mechanical industry to enable an open software platform for automation:

    • "Synchronous control drive for the multi axial drive and the high power servo-motor" project funded by MKE, Korea
    • PC-based automation system using EtherCAT, an industrial real-time Ethernet standard.
    • Open source software incl. Linux/Xenomai, Beremiz, and Etherlab EtherCAT master.
    • Comformance with international standard: IEC 61131-3, CiA302, CiA402, and IEC 61158.
    • HTML5-based vector-graphics human interface.
    • Wireless HMI
    • Incorporation of computer vision (OpenCV) in automation.

    Free Software for Six Degrees Of Freedom motion

    Summer 2009

    This video present a free software based machine made in collaboration with FESTO for LAAS.
    LAAS is a French Scientific Research Lab involved in many scientific areas, mostly related computer and robotics.
    For some computer vision experiments, this lab needed a positioning machine able to work within one cubic meter space with 6 degrees of freedom, and with 20ms time accuracy.
    Motion control software had to be fully open so that researchers could have full control over positioning.
    Realization involved six CANopen servo drives, and one industrial PC acting as a CANopen CNC, running real-time Linux, CanFestival and Beremiz.
    As an input device for manual control mode, we used a wiimote.


    The Open Source Coffee Machine

    The Open Source Coffee Machine is a recycled coffee machine, controlled by a PC running Beremiz, and using some MicroMod CANopen I/O nodes from Peak-System. This machine have been prepared in collaboration with Peak-System for SCS-Paris-08 exhibition. It served Free coffees during 4 days on Peak-System's booth and have been donated to IUT of Saint-Dié-des-Vosges so that students can have fun practising automation.
