Distributed Control System Based on PIC Microcomputers


Article Preview

This paper describes a distributed control system, which is based on PIC microcomputers. The hardware of this system included industrial personal computer, RS232-RS485 converter, control circuit, motor driver and so on. The PIC microcomputers on control circuits are used as basic control chips. The software of system is developed by Visual C++, communicates through the RS485 bus. The human-machine interface is developed, which is intuitive and friendly. Test result shows that the control system is effective and reliable.
