Industrial Controller with CircuitPython

Post by Awestruck »

Hi -

Per the CircuitPython Newsletter, I thought I'd post a thought for 2021. #CircuitPython2021

I'd like to see a couple industrial capable controllers take up CircuitPython as a programming language.
I've been looking at the Automation Direct's Open Productivity (https://www.automationdirect.com/open-source/home) and I really like it. However I'd prefer to build my next system with Python and not C/Arduino. So I'm hoping newer processor can come out and some images made for easy install and support.

I also like the controllers from Norvi: https://norvi.lk
They claim they can run micropython, and with the new ESP-S2, perhaps the NORVI IIOT can run CircuitPython.

I'd love to hear of anyone else with industrial I/O/controllers and running CircuitPython. By industrial I mean rugged, 12/24VDC or 120VAC, etc level I/O in a commercial product. Let me know.

send an email to automation direct, if they could port their block programming over to python that would be great.
I just ordered one of their Arduino starter kits, when I get it I will email them about python support!

Oh I've let them know my interest! And had a small discussion on their forums too.

Please let this forum know if you find industrial controllers running CircuitPython. I am a retired Marine Engineer and have a few applications for industrial controllers.

Feel free to connect them with me if they have questions. I don't think we'll do the work needed but I'm always happy to help someone else get it done.
