With an Assembled & Tested PCB

DIY kit comes with an Assembled and Tested PCB ensuring 100% output guarantee. Includes hardware for assembling project from scratch. Fully supported by elaborate documentation, audio visuals and tools to independently carry out the project work.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

The aim of this project is to control  electrical appliances through a personal computer (PC). For example, theatre lighting can be centrally controlled form  PC for a better stage management.

Presently, these are manually managed which makes it difficult to coordinate the lighting with  respective scene. With this system, one can control  electrical appliances on/off by just being seated at one place using a PC.

This system is integrated with the electrical loads and also connected to the PC where in centralized control takes place. It uses an RS-232 protocol from a microcontroller to communicate with the PC.

To turn on/off the appliances, we use “DAQ System” (software) which is loaded on the computer; and, a window apparently shows the loads on and off  buttons – by using which, one can easily operate / control  loads through relays interfaced to the microcontroller..

This project can be further enhanced by implementing a GUI based control panel on the PC with appropriate embedded software. The intensity control can also be incorporated using power electronics devices.

Note:  The project works only on operating systems (E.g. Windows XP). The computer must have a RS232 serial port.
