Computer Interface :
The PC is now an economic and common equipment at home or
office. Due to Open
and GNU Linux
many professional programs and environments are easily
accessible. To interface it to the real world is a step in
learning Automation and Robotics.
In Automation we have both Industrial and Home. You can start
with home automation, as industrial automation is more
complex. But in Home Automation, Safety First should be
emphasized, Any neglect in care of electrical hazards will
neutralize any advantage of Home Automation.

- How a Analog Mux is used
for more test points.
Here i will try to cover Digital and Computer Data Interface,
Device Networking, Data Communications, Analog to Digital
Interface. Internet of Things - IoT and Wireless Networking.
Do not apply voltage above 5V to any pin of printer port, ensure
earthing is good, use opto
for inputs and outputs if you are not sure. wrong
use will damage motherboard, these circuits should be used only
if your basics are very sound.

The advantage is that the industrial process or Home automation
can be monitored and controlled on any computer including
tablets which has a Browser. The plant automation or Home
appliance can be regulated even as you travel back from factory
to home. Or in any city from the Cyber Cafe. A Wireless Lan and
Computer with Browser is all you need.
