Re: Could the Pi Pico be used as the brains for a 3D Printer?

Hi everybody. I am thinking on designing a REPRAP version of m10cube (https://hackaday.io/project/171770-m10cube) This version that can be used as a 3D printer or CNC controller. After all both have common ground. More can see here on an idea bases on @phil-barrett's design https://github.com/grblHA...

Re: Raspberry Pi Pico and WiFi

That is still a work in progress. I may have to wait for the Pico-W. My advice is not to wait for pico WiFi. Why ? 1 - because I am preparing a new board for the M10CUBE ecosystem. That is M10CP02-01 board. We have one ESP-01 and Pi PICO on board. It is a temporary solution so to jump start into PI...

Re: Raspberry Pi Pico and WiFi

I recently saw the news about Raspberry Pi Pico and as I have only used the "regular" raspberry pi's before I am wondering how hard it is to get WiFi on this board. Is there a HAT, or some other way to incorporate wifi on it? I want to build a small weather station powered by a solar pane...

Hi jamesh, Safety in general in PLCs is a very serous and difficult to implement. Unfortunately we are not using Safety at all in our CODESYS enabled PLCs. But it is something we must do soon or later. It is interesting though if you have any progress on openSafety to give us a post here. Sorry not ...
