The M-DUINO42 modular PLC is based on Arduino technology and designed by Industrial Shields for professional use. Industrial Shield products provide low cost equipment, based on licensed Open Source technology which is adapted for safe use in industrial environments. The M-DUINO42 provides capacity for 42 I/O connections that can expanded to include up to 127 additional modules through I2C. This makes it possible to have up to 7100 inputs/outputs in Master-Slave configuration. It provides Ethernet connectivity, enabling the equipment to be remotely monitored.
The PLC can be programmed using the Arduino IDE platform, which can be downloaded for free. The PLC M-DUINO is programmed through USB which offers immediate access to code for maintenance and control allowing continuous monitoring of the status for all the variables, inputs, outputs, etc. The PLC is compatible with the ARDBOX range of products and the Touchberry Pi. It also takes advantage of the large selection of libraries already available to Arduino developers to ensure high performance.
