The Delphi Birthday and the Visuino Birth-week...

Happy Birthday Delphi!
By share coincidence Visuino was also born few days earlier last year. I started working on it about 5 days before this date last year, and 2 days later had the first version working, and you can see the very first public demo here about ~18 minutes into the video:
So Happy Birth-week Visuino too :-).

PlotLab is mostly ready with the MAC Port

The PloatLab port to MAC is very much complete. Part of SignalLab is also ported. Here is a screenshot of it in action ;-) :

This is also part of the work on porting Visuino to MAC so as you can see the work is underway :-) .
I hope to have initial downloads of PlotLab with the new MAC support available in the next few days. It also compiles and runs on Android, but some more work and testing is needed there...

The third Visuino article (Creating your own Components for Visuino) from the Blaise Pascal magazine is now publicly available

With the permission of the Blaise Pascal Magazine editor, I am posting as PDF the thirdth of the Visuino articles that I published last year.

In this article you will learn how you can create your own components for Visuino .
At present this requires you to have Delphi available. I am working to make it possible in the future to create components graphically in Visuino directly.

In the coming days, I will post the rest of the articles.
There are a lot more great resources in the magazine, and I recommend you to check it out.
I will be posting more articles in this wonderful magazine, and although they may get released here at some later point, you can get them from the magazine right away!

Enjoy! :-)

First prototype of Heating and Air-conditioning system with remote temperature sensor

When using the Heating and Air-conditioning system in the house, the control unit is located in the master bedroom, and controls the temperature there. When I work in the office, the temperature is not well maintained.
I need to have a remote temperature sensor in the office, controlling the Heating/AC system.
I decided to solve this with two ESP8266 NodeMCUs and Visuino.
Here is the first experimental working prototype:

Control unit:

And Remote sensor:

Next I plan to replace the sensor with DHT22, improve the UI, and package the whole thing together in boxes.
The second power regulator on the first picture is now removed. I used it for quick test before I adjusted the voltage from the adjustable buck AC/DC regulator on the top.
I will post more pictures and the Visuino project when I get it all working to my satisfaction ;-) .

Article about Visuino and ESP8266 in the "Blaise Pascal Magazine" (Internet of Things with ESP8266)

The 5th article about Visuino -, and how to create IoT remote WiFi thermostat with ESP8266 and Visuino, has just been published in the "Blaise Pascal Magazine" :

There are more articles on the way, on how to connect Arduino and ESP8266 to between themselves, and to web servers, so stay tuned ;-)
