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.

LEFT ZONE. To enable communication connections the switchs must be set to “OFF”. Set to “ON” position to enable I/Os  PLC connection.  Communications and I/Os on the chart can not work simultaneously. For exemple if DE is enabled (OFF),  R1 will not work. OFF position provides direct connection to Arduino Pin (NOT for TX and RX), so they can be programmed according to Arduino pin features.
