I work in automotive manufacturing as a Controls Engineer. I design, build, program, and debug manufacturing machines using different Beckhoff technologies. I have worked with many different industrial processes, such as laser cutting, vision systems, industrial robots and more. I like to bring the best practices from the software world into the industrial PLC world.
My work also has me diving into time series data. Be it process control, condition monitoring, OEE analysis and even individual device monitoring down to the smallest pneumatic cylinder. A lot of my work uses the open source trifecta of data analytics. PostgreSQL, Timescale, and Grafana.
Drop me a message with any Beckhoff, TwinCAT 3, EtherCAT, I/O or Motion questions. It might turn into my next blog post!
