PLC starter kit bridges the gap between theoretical knowledge 

The Arduino PLC IDE allows users to program in the five languages defined by the IEC 61131-3 standard: ladder diagram (LD), function block diagram (FBD), sequential function chart (SFC), structured text (ST) and instruction list (IL). The kit also includes the cables and tools required to integrate the Arduino PLC with industrial simulated systems.

The Arduino AKX00051 PLC starter kit provides full access to digital lessons with over 20 hours of teaching material. Through the Explore PLC course, students learn about the Modbus RS-485 communications, the history of programmable logic controllers, and how PLCs integrate with industrial simulated systems. Up to three students can use each starter kit in a classroom setup. The AKX00051 PLC starter kit’s hardware is fully compatible with the Arduino Cloud, enabling remote control functionalities for classroom and real-world scenarios.
