ArduiTouch MKR - Wall Mount Touchscreen
The new Arduino MKR series sets up a new standard about form factor, function and performance for Arduino boards in the future. These new boards comes in a compact shape, with a powerful 32 bit Cortex M0 micocontroller Atmel SAM D21 and a charger function for LiPo accumulators. Furthermore Arduino offers in this series different types of MKR modules for different IoT wireless technologies.
ArduiTouch MKR come in a nice enclosure for wall mounting together with a 2.4 inch resistive touch screen and enables you to mount your Arduino MKR project permanent in your living room, corridor or other exposed places.
This is the ArduiTouch MKR Extended Version which includes the following parts:
- Milled enclosure
- Electronic Parts
Arduino MKR Board & Shields NOT Included
2.4 inch touchscreen with integrated ILI9341 display controller, communication via SPI. Touch controller Type XPT2046 and resitive touch.
ArduiTouch MKR can be used together with thefollowing Arduino MKR boards
- Wifi1010 and 1000
- FOX1200 (Sigfox)
- WAN1300 (LoRa)
- NB1500 (NB-IoT)
Add MKR Shields
For the Arduino MKR series are different shields available. Not all of them will fit in our enclosure. Please see the compatibility list below:
- MKR 485 (RS422 / RS485)
- MKR MEM (SD card & serial Flash)
- MKR CAN (CAN BUS)
- MKR ETH (Ethernet) (MKR ETH will only fit with some mechanical modifications)
Enough space for Lithium battery and antenna
The pcb comes with two breakthroughs for antenna and lithium battery cable. The additional battery and antenna can be placed inside the device beside the touchscreen.
Vertical and horizontal mounting
Depending from your project and your software you can mount the enclosure set vertical or horizontal directely on the wall or in front of a flush wall mount box.
A removable terminal block makes installion easier. The pcbs are mounted on the enclosure allowing a rapid substitution of the devices when needed and facilitating the assembling/ disassembling of the enclosure.
The ArduiTouch pcb come with an integrated switching regulator for voltages from 9 to 35V DC. You can connect the power supply via the terminal or an optional DC socket.
The integrated piezo beeper (resonance frequency 4kHz) can be used to generate acoustic feedback, acknowldge tones or melodies.
A small breadboard area in the top of the pcb can be used for own extensions. 4 poles of the terminal are connected together with some GPIOs and the voltages with solder joints beside the breadboard.
