Hi everyone, I was wondering what the best approach would be to monitor the status of a PLC with an Electron. The controller has three status LED colors (red, yellow, green) and pulses them in various patterns for diagnostics and status reporting.
As you can probably guess, there are quite a few combinations of light pulses to indicate a variety of operating conditions or faults. I initially thought I would use an RGB color sensor like this one from DF Robot https://www.dfrobot.com/product-540.html?gclid=EAIaIQobChMIl-eFz92L1wIVCVmGCh0BzwY-EAAYAiAAEgJAcvD_BwE
I am wondering if the Particle will be able to handle all the necessary code to translate the light pulses into actionable data and forward a fault message (IE: PLC is offline), or if it would be better to offload the data to a web service for processing.
Any thoughts would be appreciated!
