Also, we keep working in Likindoy, right now the project has moved quite forward, and we started working on new targets:

  • All the projects have been re-shaped to become easier to expand and contribute.
  • We included a new set of commands and support for users and profiles per user to make all configurations more scalable.
  • All the projects moved to Bazaar Version Control System.
  • The library MODBUS_TCP was upgraded to a newer version 600 times faster.
  • Also, we published the results of the non-finished project Likindoy-RTU (Remote Terminal Unit) over Advantech ADAM 5510.

And now we are in two parallel projects:

1. Protocol for Web-based HMI:  exactly as its name says, we are working on designing a new protocol specifically for Web Based HMI Systems (Web-Based Scada System). Four people are part of this: Michael Griffin (USA), Juan José Denís (Spain), Matheus Ledesma (USA) and Juan Miguel Taboada (Spain), and you are welcome to join us. You can find more information on Likindoy’s Wiki.

2. Likindoy-RTU: after getting very disappointed with the hardware ADAM 5510 from Advantech, we decided to start a new development based on that work but able to work on any computer that can use Python. Likindoy-RTU intends to be a complete RTU System able to communicate with different DAQ (Data Acquisition Hardware) like Advantech ADAM 5000 TCP, Schneider Momentum, the /proc filesystem of Linux, direct data transfer from normal websites and any protocol based on MODBUS-TCP or that can use the basis of Likindoy-RTU’s DATAIO (Data Input/Output) System.

The system is already finished at 60%, and we are currently working on redesigning old DATAIO libraries to get them all fully compatible with the Likindoy-RTU philosophy. Alerts/Events/Alarm system has been included in it. You will be able to design your own Python program that will process all signals straight with the selected DAQ, it allows communication over Ethernet (already working) and GPRS (on testing right now), and it is also able to share its status with external programs compatible with SQLite Database System. It also can register data in files for later processing, which is compatible with Likindoy-HTR (available in unstable-juanmi version of Likindoy).
