Arduino in industry? Yes, this is possible with NOVUS new DigiRail NXprog module. Available now!

Arduino programming in industrial environment? Yes, this is possible. The new DigiRail NXprog from NOVUS combines the ease of Arduino programming with the robustness of an equipment for industrial usage.


DigiRail NXprog integrated I/Os handles both analog and digital signals, so it can be used as an I/O extension for standard automation systems, or as the brain of stand-alone applications.


Unlikely most PLCs which impose certain programming difficulties to the average user, the DigiRail NXprog programming is Arduino compatible, allowing for the use of high-level programming languages, such as C and C++. This way, users can program complex algorithms such as recursive logic, state machines, statistical analysis and mathematical equations in a very simple way.


Through its RS485 interface running Modbus RTU protocol, the DigiRail NXprog communicates with other devices acting either as a master or as a slave. It also incorporates an industrial Ethernet port running Modbus TCP protocol, enabling itself to industry 4.0 applications. In addition, the DigiRail NXprog can work with protocols from the Arduino community library as well as with other proprietary protocols.


DigiRail NXprog was designed to withstand hostile environments while being an easy to use product. It proves that it is possible to combine Arduino compatible devices with industrial environments.  DigiRail NXprog offers robustness with ease of programming and can be used in various applications with connectivity to machines and processes.
