Plug into the Future of Industrial Automation
Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) technology is vital for industrial automation, but gaps still exist between current PLC education and industry. To cultivate a robust industrial workforce, Arduino introduces a dedicated educational kit - Arduino PLC Starter Kit. It acts as a bridge between theory and practice, closing the gap in current PLC education and preparing students for real-world challenges.
Get 20 hours of lessons with the Explore PLC course. Learn about Programmable Logic Controllers, Modbus RS-485 communications, and integration with industrial simulated systems, among other comprehensive topics.
Program the kit effortlessly using the Arduino PLC IDE. This user-friendly environment simplifies PLC programming for teachers and students. Choose from any of the five programming languages defined by the IEC 61131-3 standard (Ladder,Functional Block Diagram, Structured Text, Sequential Function Chart, or Instruction List) to swiftly code PLC applications or port existing ones to Arduino Opta.
With PLC Starter Kit you will have an Intro to IEC 61131-3 standard programming languages. However, one strong point of Arduino Opta WiFi, is that it can be programmed and integrated into an industrial automation system completely with our powerful IDE 2.
Integrate seamlessly with Arduino Cloud services for IoT projects, enabling remote control functionalities for both classroom and real-world scenarios.
At the heart of the Arduino PLC Starter Kit is the Arduino Opta WiFi, already a proven success in industry.
Featuring the STM32H747XI dual-core Arm® Cortex®-M7 +M4 MCU, this powerful core enables real-time control, monitoring, and predictive maintenance applications. Ensuring security and durability, it supports OTA firmware updates and guarantees hardware-to-cloud data security via onboard security measures.
Facilitate classroom setup and simulate practical industry applications for enhanced hands-on learning with the kit's hardware. Includes a digital input and output simulator, Arduino DIN Simul8, the DIN Celsius custom-designed board featuring eight switches and power control, a resistor array, and temperature sensor.
