Integrating Chemistry Laboratory Instrumentation into the Industrial Internet: Building, Programming, and Experimenting with an Automatic Titrator
Famularo, Nicole; Kholod, Yana; Kosenkov, Dmytro
Journal of Chemical Education, v93 n1 p175-181 Jan 2016
This project is designed to improve physical chemistry and instrumental analysis laboratory courses for undergraduate students by employing as teaching tools novel technologies in electronics and data integration using the industrial Internet. The project carried out by upper-division undergraduates is described. Students are exposed to a complete process of building, calibrating, and programming an automatic titrator using an open-source microcontroller platform and standard pH probes, and integrating the instrument into the Internet. The approach is flexible and can be used to enable integration of various laboratory instruments (e.g., temperature, pressure, salinity probes, etc.) into the industrial Internet. The hardware and software are open-source, which makes further modification and development by the academic community possible.
