Ardbox Software Interface

Ardbox Software Interface

Software Interface: Arduino IDE is compatible to program these PLCs. You must download a start code in www.industrialshields.com at product page in “document files” section and then open it with Arduino IDE. Configuration of Arduino IDE: All Ardbox PLCs use an Arduino Leonardo and you need to choose these option in Arduino IDE.

Ardbox – MDuino Arduino pin

Ardbox – MDuino Arduino pin

This post describes how to gain direct access to Arduino board pins  inside the  Ardbox and MDuino PLCs. This allows to work with the PLCs in the same way as using an Arduino, in other words,  pins at 5V and configurable as input or outpts. Also, this  enables usage of  sensors  working at lower voltages than industrial standards 10V dc/24Vdc.  NOTE:Make sure the voltage DOES NOT EXCEED 5VDC!!!!!!!! Following are listed the connections with direct access to the Arduino board  pins. Ardbox: DE-D7  // RE-D4 // SDA-PIN2  // SCL-PIN3 MDuino: SCL…
