Ardbox Relay

Ardbox Relay

The Ardbox Relay is a PLC based on Open Source Hardware including Arduino Leonardo board. It has a 16MHz crystal oscillator and a micro USB connection.   Power This PLC can be powered at 12 – 24Vdc   Memory The Ardbox Relay has 32KB (4KB used for the bootloader). It also have 2.5KB of SRAM and 1KB of EEPROM (Wich can be read and written with the EEPROM library) all from the Arduino Leonardo.   Input and Output It has…
