What is ExControl Shield?
ExControl Shield is industrial grade I/O board for the Arduino mkr family, this equipment based on the Arduino technology is designed for a professional use..
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 and all ExControl IO Extension.
- Arduino MKR 1010 (Wifi and Bluetooth connectivity)
- Arduino MKR GSM 1400 (GSM connectivity)
- Arduino MKR FOX 1200 (SigFox connectivity)
- Arduino MKR WAN 1300 (Lo-Ra connectivity)
Mount your arduino mkr on a DIN-rail and interface with industrial sensors and devices directly. (I)IoT and Industry 4.0 ready to professional product or solution.
The ExControl i2c devices offers the possibility to expand up to 12 IO modules. You can have up to 71 digital inputs, 71 digital outputs and 35 analog inputs.
It also contains several communication ports which provide more flexibility and control. This offers the possibility to expand in Master-Slave connections, additionally to sensors, etc…

What to do with it?
The ExControl mkr shield bring the best price to performance ratio in the following application areas:
- Communication (Modbus RTU/TCP, Modbus/MQTT, etc.)
- Monitoring and control of machines and processes.
- Data acquisition (DAQ), data loggin
- Universal PLC for non-critical applications
You can use this equipment like any industrial plc, but using the ExControl software you can perform domotics in just a few minutes, this including:
Arduino home automation ready in only 6 minutes.
ExControl Arduino automation software 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 add librarys and users code, this tool have autocomplete and avanced features to write arduino programs.
