HI, I'm Mostyn 49 years wise and a industrial PLC programmer and electrical engineer in the crane industry.

I'm from the UK and have been watching Bill's videos for a while now and have learned a lot so far from him.

I've not had a great deal of exposure to programming languages, not since college and that was Turbo Pascal!!!

believe it or not PLC's don't go deep on any common programming languages so this is also an opportunity to brush up on my skills.

I've got an ESP32 and Arduino with an ESP32 development LCD board on it's way from china, goal is to build a touch screen HVAC system for my VW van and then progress onto a digital dash setup.

 

so hi again and talk later

 

Mostyn.

Hi @mostyn,

I too am from a industrial background, An Instrument/Electrical tech by trade, but was trained in the Navy as an Electronics tech ( Electronic weapons system, EWS, D.A.S.H, Asroc, Fire-control gun systems)

Indeed, PLC's , DCS, MPC's and the like were integral to our work..In the Paper mill where I worked the las 28 year of my 49 year career, The techs did most of the PLC and DCS programming, as well as MPC, SLC, and Smart instrumentation. 

Welcome aboard, You'll find many people on this forum with varying degrees of hardware and software experience.

regards,

LouisR
