PLCs, DCSs & Controllers


New IoT device to enhance industrial automation systems

Africa Automation Technology Fair 2023 Show Preview PLCs, DCSs & Controllers

Industrial Shields has partnered with Weidmuller to develop Weidos, a micro-PLC designed to increase the efficiency and productivity of industrial automation systems. The microcontroller design is based on Arduino MKR or ESP32 boards and supports Ethernet, LoRa, and 4G communication. Featuring real-time performance with digital and analog I/O, it allows easy integration into existing systems with a range of communication protocols. See the system in action at Stand H505.
