GENERIC CONTROL OF ELECTRICAL ENVIRONMENT THROUGH A WEBPAGE - IT Acumens. COMIT Acumens. COM
AIM: The aim of the project is to control electrical devices from a remote location through a web page.
SOFTWARE REQUIRED Java 2 Enterprise Edition(J2EE) Java Development Kit (JDK1.3) Apache Tomcat Server 1.4.1 Internet Explorer Microsoft Access Microsoft Word( for documentation)
HARDWARE REQUIRED Pentium III processor 64 MB RAM 10 GB Hard Disk Operating system windows 98 PC Add-On card with PIA chip(s) An External port board. A dedicated designed interface
SCOPE OF THE PROJECT CONTROL THROUGH IR Range is limited. Line of sight CONTROL THROUGH MICROWAVE Transmitter & Receiver are costly.
DESCRIPTION The electrical devices that are to be controlled are connected to the home PC through a designed dedicated interface.The status word of the devices are posted to the PC through the PIA present in the CPU of the home PC.The status word is then uploaded to the web server.
At the server the individual status of the devices are decoded and posted to the web page.A remote user logs in and checks the current status of the devices,if required the user changes the status of the devices.The changed status is then posted to the web server.The control word is then encoded and posted to the home PC.The changed status of the devices are reflected.
8255 CHIP The 8255 chip is called a Programmable Interface Adapter(PIA). The three buses used for the interface are the address bus,data bus and the control bus. The 8255 contains three individual I/O ports. The microprocessor connects to certain pins on the 8255.
Each port can be made to function either as Input port or an Output port by setting the control word. Block B provides the logic for reading and writing to each port of the chip. The electrical status of the devices is retrieved through the C++ program using the port-based instructions. The port-based instructions are _inp (port number) _outp (port number, value)
_inp is used to read the value from the port and _outp is used to write the value to the port.
START SELECT THE DEVICES TO BE CONTROL CONNECT THE DEVICES TO THE HARDWARE INTERFACE A
CONNECT THE INTERFACE TO THE PIA IN THE PC USING THE PORTBASED INSTRUCTIONS RETRIEVE THE STATUS WORD IS THERE A CHANGE IN STATUS WORD A
UPLOAD THE CHANGED STATUS WORD TO THE SERVER THE STATUS WORD IS DECODED AND IT IS STORED IN DATABASE IN THE SERVER THE REMOTE USERS AUTHENTICATION IS CHECKED
IS THE USER A AUTHENTICATED USER IS THE USER ADMINISTRATOR DIRECT THE USER TO A RE-LOGIN PAGE YES DOES THE USER HAVE WRITE PERMISSION DIRECTED TO THE ADMINISTRATOR PAGE NO C
DIRECT TO THE CHANGE STATUS PAGE DIRECT THE USER TO THE DISPLAY STATUS PAGE O THE USER CHANGES THE STATUS AND SUBMITS THE FORM THE ENCODED VALUE IS WRITTEN IN THE SERVER C
THE CONTROL WORD IS POSTED TO THE HOME PC THE CONTROL WORD IS SENT TO THE OUTPUT PORT OF PIA THE CHANGED STATUS IS REFLECTED ON THE DEVICES AT HOME. STOP O
MODULES Retrieving status word from the electrical device. Posting the control word to the web server. User authentication and display of current status. User changing the status of the required device.
Control word stored in the home PC. Reflecting the changed status on device.
ACQUIRING DEVICE STATUS The electrical devices are connected to the interface designed. The interface is connected to the home PC through a Peripheral Interface Adapter. The Status word is obtained through a flat cable connected from the PC to the port board. The value is then posted to the server.
DECODING A Servlet program is written to decode the status word. The current status of the device are posted to the web page.
ADMINISTRATOR The administrator has the rights to add/delete the users from/to the list. The administrator categorizes the users with two permissions * Read permission. * Read /write permission.
REMOTE USER Authenticated users are allowed to access the web page. The users with read permission can only view the current status of the device. The users with read/write permission can view as well as change the status of the device. The changed status is stored in the web servers database.
ENCODING CONTROL WORD The status stored in the database are encoded using a servlet program. The encoded value is a decimal number which varies from 0 to 255. The encoded control word is posted from the web server to the home PC.
AT THE HOME PC The encoded control word is send to the interface through a java program. Decoding is done in the interface as a result of which individual device status are changed.
