Arduino Portenta Machine Control

Arduino Portenta Machine Control adds Industrial IoT capabilities to standalone industrial machinery. The Portenta Machine Control is a fully centralized, low-power, industrial control unit. It drives equipment, machinery, and can be programmed using the Arduino framework or other embedded development platforms. Its computing power enables a wide range of predictive maintenance, and AI use cases. It enables real-time data collection from the factory floor and supports the remote control of equipment, even from the cloud.
