Arduinos are great boards, but they need stacks of shields & wires, and they're not very durable.  

Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs) are complete and durable, but they're expensive and hard to program.  

It's time our friend Arduino got tougher and smarter than a PLC!

Eliminate the wires. Create something safe and reliable. Get Ardunio ease-of-use, running on real US industrial quality hardware.  Build your project on a reliable and durable platform.

Easy- to use.  Complete.  Reliable.  Priced right.
Easy- to use. Complete. Reliable. Priced right.

Have I seen something similar before?

A few of us backed "Controllino".  It hasn't arrived. Meanwhile, we listened... Backers want:

  • More Power ...than just an Espressif chip
  • Expanded Memory  ...like 128Mb + 4GB  instead of 8Mb
  • Easier Programming ...stable Arudino
  • "How about a decent LCD?"
  • US design / build / QC
  • Honest delivery at a fair price

You led us to this second generation, three-processor design. Have a look at the schematics here.  Peek under the cover here.

The Mega 2560 gives you ease of use and stability. Opto-isolation and durable power relays give you industrial strength. There's a micro SD slot for files, an extra EEPROM and enough rugged digital and analog I/O for almost any app. A color touchscreen and speaker give you a nice user interface. We've included a real-time clock and plenty of other bells and whistles... 

Design and testing are complete. We're ready to build. The campaign is "damn fast".  We invite your pledge to defray component costs.  You'll get a high quality product on time.

Our last two KS projects shipped in just a few days...

Our backers say...

  • Guys, I got my 10 relays very quickly! Thanks so much!
  • Fastest ever fulfillment by a kickstarter! Mine are here - I put them on my test rig and they pass all the UL requirements with flying colors.
  • I used mine as a WiFi remote controller.  So there was NO programming needed...  Nice work.
  • Mine arrived today. Looks very nice. I opened one up and the build quality seems quite good.
  • Three days??? Damn fast. You guys are serious.
  • I got mine yesterday and tested it! Works flawlessly!!! 
  • Thanks for a super fast campaign 
  • This is best Kickstarter ever. There is no Kickstarter can do as you guy did. Few project that I have been pledge said will shipping right after project end all fail until now haha still nothing.

Hardware Features:

  • AT Mega 2560 + 16U2 + ESP8266 + Expanded flash & EEPROM
  • External 2.4GHz WiFi antenna with RP-SMA connector
  • Six high-power relays, DPST, safety fused
  • Eight digital outputs with open collector drivers
  • Eight opto-isolated digital inputs 3-24V AC/DC
  • Eight 10-bit ADC input channels
  • USB connection for Arduino compatibility
  • Powered from 12-24VDC
  • Clock calendar with battery backup for scheduling
  • RS-232 for long distance wired communication
  • Expanded 128Mb FLASH for WiFi / Lua program storage
  • 4GB SD card free to KS backers (expandable, great for logging)
  • 2.4" 320x240 Color LCD touch screen
  • Speaker with audio amp
  • DIN Enclosure for easy rail or panel mount
Keep goin' we'll add more!
