Portenta Machine Control

Arduino’s machine control can create an infrastructure of interconnected machines that can be controlled onsite or via the cloud

Image of Arduino's Portenta Machine ControlArduino’s Portenta machine control enables real-time data collection from the factory floor and supports the remote control of equipment, even from the cloud, when desired. It enables a wide range of predictive maintenance and AI use cases. The machine control can be programmed using the Arduino framework or other embedded development platforms.

The Portenta machine control enhances existing products with minimal effort, allowing companies to implement a standard platform across different equipment models. It is now easy to create an infrastructure of interconnected machines, which can be controlled onsite or via the cloud when needed. The human-machine interaction (HMI) can be further enhanced via mobile apps thanks to Bluetooth® Low Energy (BLE) connectivity.
