“When I was at electronic school … I would have loved ARDUINO … but back then microcontroller programming wasn’t that easy. When I became aware of ARDUINO I thought … what a great idea for young people and those who are not hardcore microcontroller programmers.
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 or even a product that you want to sell is quasi impossible if you want to get certification.
CONTROLLINO is a Software Open-Source PLC in 3 different sizes. Perfect for your next Industrial Application, Home Automation, Educational – Project to control your Internet of Things.
A solid hardware build around Atmel’s ATmega328 and the ATmega2560 microcontrollers, ready to run with your products and projects.”
