SuggestionAbout a new section for Automation and industry programming Pin

Hello all, I have been thinking about posting this during a time.

First of all I want to congratulate the CP-Staff for their work. I know that you already have plenty of work with the site as it is, but I would like to suggest the creation of a new section, because I see that CP is one of the best sites in the net and it involves more and more technologies with the time.

The section I want to suggest is about industry automation. That could involve PLC-Programming, Robot-Programming, Scripting in HMI-Scadas, Bus-Hardware and things like that.
Many people will consider that those subjects are not worth enough to be considered here, but I can tell that industry programming can be tricky and difficult enough to deserve a place in CP where people can ask and learn about these themes.

I know that PLCs and HMIs have a huge graphical / object programming part and that they are very machine related, that can make difficult to understand the problem in some situations, but there are a lot of general situations and different ways to program things.

There are languages that could be comparable to others already covered in CP. For instance: AWL and SCL in Siemens PLCs, Scripts for WinCC Flex (based in VB), Database for the communication and protocolling, Interaction between PLCs and PCs, Ethernet and Socket Protocols, Robot scripting, Visual recognition and image processing… And on the side of Hardware: Configuration of Bus-Slaves, Servomotors, interaction between peripheral elements. Communication Protocols as CAN Bus, Profibus, Profinet, Ethernet…

I have been talking to some members of CP that already have a bit background in this technologies, one of the most known is Sascha Barber (I asked for permission to use his name) and they are agree that could be a good idea and that these technologies are worth to be considered a part of our community. That’s the reason why I have decided to post this suggestion to see if there are more members that could be interested and if the CP-Staff would think about the possibility of adding the section.

Thank you very much and sorry for the long post.
Regards.

If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpfull answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
