Controllino MINI documentation

Post by pluggy » Sat Mar 16, 2019 9:36 am

Hello,
I bought a Controllino MINI and did my first steps switching some ports, reading digital inputs and communicate with my PC via com port.
That works so far.

But I cannot find any documentation describing this PLC completely and in detail.
All information I got so far came from example sketches.

Isn't there any documentation with a description of how to use all the features?
I only found the users manual and a data sheet...

I.e. I don't know how to use PWM. And what about the relays when I'm using PWM ? Are they rattleing with the PWM frequency, becaues they are on the same pins?

Hello Puggy,
the HW of the CONTROLLINO is not open source, you can find all needed information at https://www.controllino.biz/downloads/#manuals including description which peripheral is connected to which port.
About using of the PWM, you can use standard PWM sketch from Aurduino, it shall work. Also you can find a lot of example sketches if you install the CONTROLLINO plugin into your IDE.
Yes, mini has outputs connected in parallel with relays, if you use the PWM, then depends on dutty cycle if the relay will be switched ON or OFF. Of course you cannot use relay with higher frequency PWM function ;).

Hello Puggy,

But you can always disable the Relays ... Tutorials ... Examples ... disconnect Relays
