Shark Byte I
The Shark Byte I is the top-end spec of the Shark Byte PLC range featuring 8 inputs, 8 outputs, 4 analog inputs, and two stepper motor output control signals. Like all Shark Byte PLCs the Shark Byte I is constructed using through-hole technology to make it easy to build in kit form, repair, and understand how PLCs function. All terminals on the Shark Byte I are screwed making it easy to connect to external hardware, inputs are protected via optoisolators, and all outputs have relays with both normally closed and normally open contacts.
This PLC works with the L2 PLC software which is available for free with no strings attached!
