Need info on control software


Thread Starter


We are working on a solar steam project and we are looking for software (preferably open source that will run on a Windows PC) to automate control of the system.

The software needs to be able to handle temperature and data acquisition and allow for the controlling the system (via electric motors) based on the data gathered.

The max pressure will be around 100 ps1 and the max temp will be around 500C. Any recommendations on sensors would also be very helpful.

We are new to this type of software so the more intuitive the better.

Thank you for any suggestions.
