The Industrial Control Kit will teach you all about microcontrollers, PID and Industrial Techniques.
The 264-page industrial control text is an educational tutorial on process control with the BASIC Stamp module. Methods of process control (on-off, differential gap, proportional-integral-derivative) are demonstrated in detail using a simple desktop heater system consisting of a film canister with a temperature sensor (LM34 probe) and a heat (1/2 watt 47 ohm resistor). Heating drive is altered to demonstrate each concept. A fan provides an external disturbance to the closed-loop system. The use of high-voltage electricity to achieve the same concepts is also explained using solid-state relays. A key benefit of the text is that it uses StampPlot Lite as a graphic and datalogging utility for each experiment.
