Creating a Linux image for the Siemens IoT2000 series

This blog was last updated on 4/13/2017. The process for generating the Siemens IOT2000 Yocto image may have changed. The newly released Siemens IOT2000 series of controllers offer the flexibility of hobbyist Linux or Arduino platforms with the ruggedization necessary for industrial environments. The Siemens boards make use of the Yocto build tool for image creation. A sample image can be downloaded from the Siemens website (after logging in). However, for more involved projects it can be use...

DMC Chicago Beach Volleyball 2016

After a record-setting beach volleyball season last year, we returned for our sophomore effort at North Avenue Beach. A new class of DMC hires brought some fresh blood to the team. For much of the season our team was also supplemented with new employees training in the Chicago office who would eventually make their way to New York, Denver, and Boston. With so many people, we often scrimmaged each other on a different volleyball court or in a game of frisbee. We made it to the champi...

Coffee, Internet Buttons and Slack

In a recent blog I detailed how I designed a case for a button that people can press to notify the office via Slack that a fresh pot of coffee has been brewed. Now for the fun part, the programming. This project uses the Particle Photon and the Internet Button. Particle's hardware and development environment makes easy IoT projects like this a breeze. There are three components to the code that we'll need to put together: The Slack webook that ...

This tutorial is for SiMotion Scout V4.4 HF6 with TIA Portal. Features may change in different versions. The Device Trace in SiMotion has built-in functionality that makes it easy to track down a pesky condition that might only happen once or twice per day. Rather than sit at the machine waiting all day for the fault to happen, you can set up a triggered recording and let Simotion do the work while you go get a cup of coffee. The following steps will walk you through setting up the trace conf...

Chicago Fly Fishing Excursion

As a new employee at DMC Chicago, I’m quickly learning just how easy it is to plan exciting outings with my fellow coworkers. At our first mentor lunch, Gareth and I were musing on how much we wanted to learn how to fly fish. With some planning from Gareth and a survey to gauge interest, two weeks later we were out on the North Pond in Lincoln Park with 21 DMCers and Chicago Fly Fishing Outfitters learning the basics.  The class walked us through the general premise of fly fishing,...
