What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

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.

 

  

  

What is ExControl I2C Extension?

ExControl  I2C ExtensionShield is an industry ready i2c inputs and outputs extenision, it allows to expand the number of inputs and outputs, being able to include up to four cards connected to the mk shield.

  

What to do with it?

You can use these equipments like any industrial plc, but using the ExControl software you can perform domotics in just a few minutes, including:

Arduino home automation ready in 6 minutes only .

Arduino automation 2018 is the easiest way to generate a arduino compatible program for home automation, this is so easy and contains a powerfull code edit module for include your own code to the proyect, this tool have autocomplete and avanced features to write arduino programs.

Advanced web server, with ajax technology and very simple to configure. 

If we complete the campaign you will be able to download your web app for home and industrial control, it is a powerful tool that communicates using ajax (Asynchronous Javascript and XML) to update the data asynchronously.

Fast and easy push notification. 

You can configure push notification quickly using the configuration tool.

Excontrol server in real time.

Technical specs (ExControl Shield):

  • 7x Digital isolated Inputs.
  • 7x  Digitals isolated  ouput (12Vcc ,600mA) 4 are pwm output.
  • 3 Analog inputs (0-3.3v) with tvs protection .
  • 1x Analog Output 0-3v.
  • i2c EEPROM: 8kB.
  • Real time clock ds2331.
  • 1x I2C Interface
  • Enlargement of outputs an inputs through ExControl I2C Extension

Risks and challenges

At the kickstarter launch we already have a correctly working prototype, different versions have been made and tested. Our current version is mature enough and ready to be produced.

With this campaign we want to acquire all the machinery necessary to carry out the production of all the equipment, this will allow us to produce the better cuality product, controlling the entire production phase and ensuring the CE marking.

We want to publish our web server for everyone, but we need to complete the campaign to do it.. you can make it possible !!!
