Hello, I can’t seem to find any good information on this topic so I’m asking here. I’m a student working on my junior design project. I would like to create some sort of a plant monitoring system (temp, moisture, PH, and UV sensors). These sensors would ideally feed into an Arduino (or alike) which then I would like to be able to use in Ignition Maker as tags. I’d like to use Ignition to be able to historically track tags, provide a good UI for real-time data through perspective, and for the alarming capabilities.
The issue I’m having is trying to figure out how I can (as inexpensively as possible) take analog sensor data and turn it into tags that Ignition can use. Maybe the best route is to not use an Arduino and if so, what hardware would work better? Either way, I’m at a loss on how to get Ignition to interact with simple sensor data without using an expensive PLC or similar.
