Biemme Italia strongly trusts in Research and Innovation as a fundamental key to the company’s success and to a general satisfaction. Because of that, every year, we plan and invest many resources in order to create the new generation products: we love to call them Evolution.
The following chart basically summarizes the two tightly coupled elements that form this process:
During Incubator phase, the collaboration and contribution of all the staff allow to chose the most promising ideas that most likely will lead to successful projects. Prototypes will be created in order to help the decision process. The Life phase, a natural consequence of Incubator, is devoted to effectively produce the selected projects.
LTOUCH10 102 – power eXplosion

Even more powerful with a processor Quad Core Cortex-A9, with dynamic frequency scaling from 400M Hz to 1.4G Hz
Some of the most important features:
- DDR3 RAM: 1GB 32bit DDR3 RAM
- Ethernet: Gbps Ethernet(RTL8211E) with unique MAC
- eMMC: 8GB
- OS : Android5.1
Also on board:
- 5 Inputs
- 5 Relays ( 5A )
In the following sections, you will find a list of projects and products that we are working on. Indeed, follow our latest videos on Biemme’s youtube channel!
pLtouch 101 – power eXplosion
The pLtouch (program logic touch) is an Android-based touch HMI specifically designed for industrial automation projects. Compared to our Ltouch HMI panels already available and in production, the pLtouch inherits all the extremely important features of the predecessor Ltouch such as connectivity interfaces eth, wifi, usb, 232, 485; media storage like SD slots, debug ports, audio ports etc and extend them with:
- 13 opto-isolated digital inputs,
- 8 output relays,
- 4 analog inputs 0/20mA with 12 bits resolution,
- 2 analog outputs 0/20mA or 0/10V with 12 bits resolution.
Indeed, it provides a software library for Android that let’s you access digital and analog I/O with a single line of code, without worrying about all the underlying technical details. In order to help the customers, that are used to the PLC software architectures, to migrate to Java applications, we designed the library in a way that they can still adopt the PLC one loop execution logic. For all the others users that are comfortable with the Android world, the normal execution flow is available.
Small and cheap PT100 to 0-5V Converter
Conv. V14 is a mixed integrate circuit that features a two or three PT100/Cu50 converter. It supports thermal resistance as input signal and outputs 0 – 5 V. It meets industrial wide temperature, humidity, shaky and poor operation environment conditions. The main features are the following:
- Accuracy, Linearization error grade: 0.2° degree (relative temperature)
- Built-in linear processing and long-term compensation circuit
- Isolation Voltage: 3000 VDC
- Auxiliary Power Supply: 5V or 24VDC
- International standard signal output: 0-5V
- Small size, low cost, easy to use with high reliability
- Industrial temperature range: – 45 °C ~ + 85 °C
- Input temperature range: -20 / +100 °C
New Ltouch F 2014 with XBee interface
The 3D animation above represents the new Ltouch F that will be the best product of the Ltouch series. It is an Android-based device that has a 7″ capacitave display and the most important interfaces like Ethernet, HDMI, USB, etc. Indeed, this specific version has the wireless XBee interface that allow you to create network of Ltouch devices that communicate between them.
bMini shield: Code, plug and use it
…make your house and industry more efficient and clever.
Don’t spend your time reading tons of forums and blogs trying to understand which resistors and capacitors to use, how much current have to pass, the voltage each relay works and how to use the leds. This is old story.
What you have to do is to use some simple Arduino statements and the bMini shield will takes care of all the stuff. Plug you Arduino Mini, Ethernet or Uno board into the bMini shield and you immediately get 4 relay outputs (max 8A), 4 opto isolated digital inputs, 8 analog inputs, 2 PWM outputs, one rs485 bus line and Ethernet interface.
Read the technical specifications on our wiki!
Only one simple action is necessary to realize all your projects that need digital/analog inputs and outputs. The new shield is created to be as modular as possible with the aim of creating networks of bMini shields connected each other within a couple of steps. You will able to create simple and complex innovative projects.
Simplicity is the key for the success: this is the motto that summarizes our product. The bMini shield contains all the ingredients that will make reality all your ideas, in only 16×17 cm (6.3×6.7 in). This represents another great achievement of our Research Lab and it is already available from our store!
Simple, flexible and smart: Ltouch!
A touchscreen is an electronic visual display that can detect the presence and location of a touch within the display area. The term generally refers to touching the display of the device with a finger or hand. Touchscreens can also sense other passive objects, such as a stylus. Touchscreens are common in devices such as game consoles, all-in-one computers, tablet computers, and smartphones.
The touchscreen has two main attributes. First, it enables one to interact directly with what is displayed, rather than indirectly with a pointer controlled by a mouse or touchpad. Secondly, it lets one do so without requiring any intermediate device that would need to be held in the hand (other than a stylus, which is optional for most modern touchscreens). Such displays can be attached to computers, or to networks as terminals. They also play a prominent role in the design of digital appliances such as the personal digital assistant (PDA), satellite navigation devices, mobile phones, and video games.
