Need an easy-to-use but powerful control solution for more industrial-type projects? Get the controller that does exactly what you want in a sturdy, contained package.
Combine Arduino simplicity, ESP8266 WiFi connectivity, and Digital Logger’s experience and reliability to customize your own PLC for controlling industrial and robotics projects. Digital Loggers PLDuino is a PLC (Programmable Logic Controller) that is based on the ATmega2560 (same chip as an Arduino Mega) and also contains an ESP8266 as well as a 2.4″ color TFT touchscreen! If you need to control equipment or robotics, the PLDuino could get you started fast, its great for making and hacking!
All inputs and outputs are protected – that’s what we call some PLC TLC! Get more functionality from this complete, heavy-duty PLC, and eliminate complexity without the hassle of stacks of boards, wires and components.
The color LCD touchscreen and speaker add an useful human interface, and a separate WiFi chip takes the workload off the main ATnega2560 processor. The I/O is robust and well protected, and you can rest assured – the board is easy to service and modify.
Most PLC users never pop the cover, but if you’d like to explore the innards, go ahead and customize it. The Digital Loggers crew provides you with full schematics and component specs in a packet included with each PLC.
Applications include industrial control, home automation, robotics and SCADA (supervisory control and data acquisition). What will you build?

We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
