What is ExControl Shield?
ExControl Shield is an industry ready, freely programmable PLC.It’s used arduino mkr tecnology to create conected object. It can virtually serve any controlling, automation and data-logging purpose for you. you can combine this shield with all arduino mkr family.
- Arduino MKR 1000 (Wifi connectivity)
- Arduino MKR GSM 1400 (GSM connectivity)
- Arduino MKR FOX 1200 (SigFox connectivity)
- Arduino MKR WAN 1300 (Lo-Ra connectivity)
