Shark Byte PLC
A PLC with simplicity and makers in mind
What are Shark Byte PLCs?
The Shark Byte PLC range are Programmable Logic Controllers designed to train and teach how industrial systems work as well as introduce users to ladder logic. Unlike industrial PLCs, Shark Byte PLC devices are designed to be easy to install, code, and repair while simultaneously offering a multitude of functionality. The largest Shark Byte PLC offers multiple I/O with output relays and input protection circuitry while the smallest is designed to fit in your pocket and be programmable on-the-go.
L2 - A Powerful Free Editor & Simulator
The programming editor used with the Shark Byte PLC range is designed entirely in-house using Python meaning that it works on Windows, Linux, and Mac devices. L2 also integrates a simulator with multiple inputs and outputs so designs can be simulated before being downloaded to a real device. On top of all of this, the L2 editor is entirely free regardless of its use in projects, the classroom, or industrial environments.
Simplicity at its heart
Modern PLCs used in industrial environments are very complex devices, and the programming environments that they use typically have a steep learning curve. The Shark Byte PLC devices, however, are designed with simplicity in mind and are easy to integrate into any project. Furthermore, the Shark Byte PLC range is ideal for replacing microcontrollers in many maker projects including robotics, automation, and reactive control.
