The Rugged MEGA-ET Extended Temperature is here. Customers wanted an ET version of our best selling Rugged MEGA and we delivered. All the same great features as the Rugged MEGA with an extended operating temperature threshold of -40C to +85C. *
Ready for Industrial environments with built-in DIN Rail Mounting holes. Rugged MEGA DIN Rail kit can be found here.
The Rugged MEGA and Rugged MEGA-ET have received power supply upgrades and now officially carry our "Industrial Ready" seal. The reworked power supply offers increased efficiency, quieter operation, and more consistent performance across the entire operating voltage spectrum.
See the difference between the standard Arduino Mega and the Rugged MEGA and the value of the MEGA here on our Technical Information Page.
The Rugged MEGA-ET is a ruggedized Arduino-compatible microcontroller board. It is directly compatible with the Arduino Mega. It uses the same microcontroller (ATmega 2560), same Arduino GUI, same clock frequency, same connectors, and same connector positions. It differs from the standard Arduino Mega in that Rugged MEGA-ET features include overcurrent and overvoltage protection on I/O pins and 5V/3.3V outputs, ESD protection on I/O pins and USB port, total microcontroller overcurrent protection, and operation at up to 30V. The Rugged MEGA power section is also more robust, resilient, and efficient. Fully assembled and ready to work right out of the box. Works with the Arduino GUI and is compatible with Arduino shields and libraries.
