PHPoC Shield Series
Products > PHPoC Shield for Arduino
This product line is designed to connect Arduino Uno and Mega to the Internet, bringing all great features of PHPoC to Arduino, and enabling Arduino users to build Arduino-powered IoT devices easily, quickly, conveniently and securely. PHPoC Shield is stackable on Arduino Uno and Mega, and communicates with them through SPI interface. There are various built-in Web applications which Arduino users can use without Web programming. Users just need to program on Arduino side. For advanced users, they can customize or develop their own Web Apps on PHPoC Shield.
Why PHPoC Shield for Arduino?
In the era of IoT (Internet of Things), everything should be connected to the Internet. Arduino Uno and Mega are popular hardware platforms and widely used in many applications. However, they are not able to connect to the Internet themselves. PHPoC Shield is here to be a bridge between Arduino and the Internet. Moreover, PHPoC Shield brings Arduino many dominant features that have never been seen in other shields to Arduino.
PHPoC Shield for Arduino supports both Ethernet and Wi-Fi connectivities, offering the choices to suit your environment. It supports various network protocols (IPv4/IPv6, TCP, ICMP, DHCP, HTTP, SSH, SMTP, ESMTP, DNS, DDNS, etc.), security protocols (WPA-PSK/WPA2-PSK, WPA-Enterprise, SSL/TLS) and encryption algorithms.
Built-in Web Apps
In order to bring more conveniences to users, some Web Apps were built and preloaded into PHPoC Shield, which allow users to instantly interact with Arduino via Web without Web programming. Just by using the Web browser on your smartphone, tablet or PC, you can real-time control/monitor Arduino-connected things or change your network configuration via the Web.
PHPoC Shield for Arduino
brings joy of using a variety of functions
A built-in rechargeable battery and RTC allow PHPoC Shield to get time information and to perform time-related functionalities such as scheduling and alarming. With its E-mail library, you can get the desired information via E-mail. It also supports a variety of protocols such as SSH, Telnet, and WebSocket. PHPoC Shield includes a micro-SD card slot, which can be interfaced with using the SD library.
The capability of Arduino board can be extended by adding PHPoC Shield 2 and its Smart Expansion Board. Smart Expansion Boards allow users to easily control/monitor high-voltage devices, DC motors, stepping motors or to exchange data with RS-232, RS-422 and RS-485 devices.
In depth, let's think about 7 layers in OSI model. PHPoC Shield has already implemented from layer 1 to layer 6, even layer 7 (in case of Web Apps). You just need to develop layer 7 (application) on Arduino. Applications on Arduino use libraries to communicate with TCP/IP, SSL/TLS or Web Apps on PHPoC Shield. With powerful libraries and examples, you can easily do anything you want.
