WHAT IS PHP CONTROLLER?
Php Controller is a powerful library that allows to run continuously your php script, looping it with a very little cycle time (in order of some tens of milliseconds depending on your hardware platform performance) without memory saturation.
Exploiting its features, thanks to this library you can realize IoT smart applications and Industry 4.0 projects, developing a smart controller that acquires, elaborates, manages, sends and shows process data which come from sensors located in an IoT network.
Or, more simply, when the timing resolution of the tool crontab is not enough to reload your script, Php Controller can be a the perfect solution to increase the reloading frequency.
ALL THE POWER OF THE MQTT PROTOCOL
Using the MQTT protocol and the WebSocket technology its possible to achieve great performances in data sharing. The Php Controller package contains a ready-to-use implementation of the Mosquitto-PHP library: you'll discover how easy it's to realize an IoT architecture with excellent performances!
SOME APPLICATIONS
Here below a few examples of what you can develop:
You can also manage and monitor:
...and so on!

WHO IS IT FOR?
Php Controller is designed for professionals, prototypists, developers and web designers and offers a ready-to-use tool that you can customize for your purposes with few steps, in order to manage remote I/O boards organized in a client-server architecture, to which sensors and actuators are connected.
Every developer can easily realize an automation system, to connect sensors and actuators both to low-cost electronic modules and to professional boards and unleash his talent managing I/O interface boards of all families!
WHY TO USE PHP CONTROLLER?
REQUIREMENTS
Php Controller needs to be installed on a Unix board (a mini pc, a notebook and so on) where an http web server is running with php interpreter. It's needed an MQTT broker if your application require it.
