General Overview: I want to remotely control an engine and pump.
Details as I see them now:
I will have the following data streams coming in. Most, if not all, will be analog.
1. pump inlet pressure
2. pump outlet pressure
3. engine rpm
4. fuel level
5. output shaft rpm
I want the above displayed on a screen.
I want to be able to control the following via "slide bar" controls or start/stop buttons:
1. clutch actuator for engage/disengage function. (Right now the clutch is a mechanical handle that an operator must engage. Electric actuators are available to operate the handle). This should be on a start/stop button.
2. throttle control (again, this is mechanical now. Electric actuators are available). This should be on a slide bar control that allows for fine tuning the throttle setting.
I would like for all of the above things to happen on one screen. I prefer Windows operating environment. I will need details from programmer on how to bring all signal wires into computer (USB, serial, etc.) along with any interface these wires may require.
I ultimately will be accessing this progrom remotely via the internet.
