PLT-300A: The new standard in factory programming and test automation.
Programmable Power to your device under test (1.8V, 3.3V, 5V, variable up to 24V).
Secure connection to your cloud backend via PLTcloud.
your Linux or 32-bit device use JTAG, SWD, UART, USB or directly flash microSD cards, verified support for loads of MCU targets.
Aircraft-grade aluminum enclosure tough, lightweight, and highly recyclable.
Digital Multimeter (DMM) functionality controlled by software.
PLT-OS is hardened Linux distribution purpose built for the production line.
Manufacturing is not easy and we designed the PLT-300A to be intuitive for the line manager setting it up and the operator using it, wherever they may be on the planet. Our efforts were recognized with a product design award from iF.
The PLT-300A is certified by the ioXt Alliance, a global device-level certification created by industry leaders to improve the security of IoT hardware.
Through our support of Climate Neutral we measure, reduce, and offset all carbon emitted to make PLTs and maintain the PLTcloud backend. We are working hard to reduce the environmental cost of all electronic devices with the 10 ways outlined in our Better
Devices Manifesto. The PLT-300A relieves pressure to send engineers to distant production site for setup and troubleshooting.
How It Works
Program your device with the desktop PLT in debug mode during production.
Send the firmware directly to your CM using the PLTcloud.
