I have a home brewery I'd like to tinker with, and I'd like to build various process controls into my brew system. I'd like to be able to monitor temperatures, turn heating elements on and off, run timers, control systems remotely (well, inside my house), set alarms, and more. Can perl do this? If perl can't handle this, what type of coding would I be looking at to handle industrial applications?
Next, what is the piece of equipment that would I would connect thinks like my temperature probes, etc, to. There will naturally be some hard wiring utilized for things like a control box with switches to turn on the elements etc, but what piece of hardware would I need to connect to monitor my brewhouse and control the different elements in my brew house? Thanks,
I love it when a program comes together - jdhannibal
