Ardbox is an Arduino based PLC for Industrial use. Most of the industry sensors work at 24 Vdc. As the standard ARDUINO works at a voltage of 5Vdc and 3.3Vdc depending on the different devices this in principle makes impossible its usage on industrial environments. This is the main reason why Industrial Shields has adapted the Arduino Industrial original electronic in order to let them work at 24Vdc and it has also has made sure that it meets all the requirements and industrial regulations.
The initial Arduino PLC developed by Industrial Shields are:
Each one of these devices looks for the maximum Arduino performance, being possible to be used as an industrial machine controller, automation processes, control systems, etc… Furthermore, if there is a need of a combination of the different Arduino PLCs, it is possible to use them in Master – Slave mode as the whole Ardbox family is prepared in order to offer a better and optimized control and communication with the machinery.
