µController board and run time system
Automation Module weAut_01
Based on a standard µController, weAut_01 was elaborately developed in 2010,
professionally manufactured in 2011 and sold.
Remark: This module and its firmware was the foundation
catalyst of weinert-automation.
The robustness of the IO, the wide range, buffering and surveillance of its power supply and many more features conform to industrial automation system standards. Properties like those are not found with (e.g.) Pis, neither on IO nor with supply.

weAut_01 combines quality and robustness of industrial automation systems with (compared even to a basic Pi) low performance processor and slow LAN. As “serially controlled slave” weAut_01 may be the robust digital and analogue IO for a (small) standard computer.
Run time system weAutSys
for µControllers is custom-tailored to weAut_01
and, nevertheless, easily adjustable to similar modules.
There are, e.g., ports to Arduino evaluation boards (Uno, Mega2560).
weAutSys features a framework with cycles, timers and supporting services for easily implementing automation applications in C.
Vendor statement: Since 2021 weinert-automation is aware of multiple security vulnerabilities in the uIP stack – commonly referred to as AMNESIA:33. The stack was used in weAut_01’s LAN interface and is verifiably not in use anymore. Therefore, we deem the exploitation of our product a low risk. Patches won’t be provided, hence.
The serial bootloader for several ATmega µControllers is an integrative part of weAutSys. Also, it may be used in other projects and on other platforms.
Automation with the Raspberry Pi
Automating with small standard computers is a low cost approach which you must take the lack of features coming without saying with industrial automation systems into consideration with. You will have to live without the lacking features or compensate for otherwise.
approach allows process control and home automation with small standard
computers like the
and with standard protocols and operating systems.
Programming the application and its control is done in C.
- Using standard components of the shelf (“COTS”) for professional process control and automation
- Management and surveillance of photovoltaic (PV) systems for private consumption
- DCF77 with the Pi
