Video Demo: Single Pair Ethernet to Remotely Monitor Vibration – Information

From sensor to information, this demonstration of 10BASE-T1L SPE walks by way of an precise use case from the deep depths of the SparkFun basement.




We had some enjoyable with our companions – Digi-Key, Analog Units, Harting, and Würth Elektronik – to not solely develop 10BASE-T1L SPE prototyping instruments, however to additionally put collectively a useful demo/use case. The video beneath gives a fast take a look at the brand new prototyping instruments after which strikes to the demo.


At SparkFun we’ve water, primarily a river, that flows below our constructing – making flooding in our basement a danger. We would have liked a solution to monitor the sump pumps to point if there may be flooding.


Throughout this demo, Kirk (our CTO), takes viewers into our basement to display how he constructed a system to watch the pumps utilizing the MicroMod and QWiic ecosystems – together with a pair sensors to watch vibration, the SparkFun MicroMod Ethernet Perform Board, the MicroMod RP2040 Processor Board, a really lengthy single pair ethernet cable, and a handful of different components. The information transmitted by way of the cable is displayed utilizing Machinechat.


SPE Demo at IMTS this Week!

In the event you occur to be on the Worldwide Manufacturing Know-how Present (IMTS) this week and wish to play with a small scale model of this demo, go to the Harting sales space, #134533.
