“The only problem with Arduino is … when you don’t really know so much about electronic hardware … driving more than a LED can become difficult. And using an Arduino Board in a professional project is not so popular among professionals
While you will have 250V / 5A Relays Outputs, 2A Digital Outputs and Digital/Analog Inputs you will not miss the possibility to also connect also directly to the processor. This means you can still use the Controllino as a full Arduino platform like before.
Controllino is fully UL and CE certificated and lets you use your Arduino Project even in professional applications or products intended to sell on the local and international market.”
