Monitor AC Lines Using Tibbo’s New AC Voltage Detection Tibbit.
AC Detection Tibbit Expands Tibbo Project System Capabilities
Electricity is the bedrock of the modern world — everything runs on it. This dependency means that ensuring the stable supply of power is more important than ever for all types of industries.
Enter Tibbo’s AC voltage detection Tibbit #63, which is available in two versions. AC voltage detection is particularly useful for detecting and reacting to blackouts, integrating old contactor-based control systems into modern digital management systems, and monitoring AC feedback lines to ensure power delivery in mission-critical applications.
Tibbit #63-1 is designed for use with 110V AC lines. Thanks to its low detection threshold, it can also be used to monitor 24V and 48V AC voltages, which are not uncommon in contactor-based control systems.
Tibbit #63-2 is designed to be used primarily with 220V AC lines, but will also reliably detect the presence of 110V AC power.
Using Tibbit #63 in conjunction with our Tibbit #15 high-voltage AC solid state relay enables Tibbo Project System (TPS) devices to read AC lines and trigger AC actuators. This allows you to create solutions that seamlessly integrate into industrial AC-driven control systems.
WM2000EV Takes on the Google Cloud
We’re happy to present the next step in our guided journey of exploration for the WM2000EV kit. In the first three tutorials, we demonstrated several of the WM2000’s key features, such as automatic Wi-Fi network association, wireless debugging, and Transport Layer Security (TLS) implemented via a simple API.
Our latest demonstration shows how to connect your WM2000 to the Google Cloud Platform — yet another of the world’s largest cloud services providers. We use the MQTT protocol to securely transmit data to Google and send commands from the cloud to the WM2000.
As Google Cloud Platform supports JSON Web Tokens (JWT) for authentication, we’ve added a corresponding method to our WM2000’s API that enables generating such tokens. This new method will also work with other services that employ JWT.
As always, the source code for this app is included in the WM2000EV Project Repository.
