RS Components announces availability of new industrial I/O module
15 May 2017
New SIMATIC IOT2000 is Arduino compatible and enables connection of non-critical sensor data.
RS Components has announced availability of the new SIMATIC IOT2000 module from Siemens, which is an Arduino-compatible shield that enables additional digital and analogue input/output (I/O) connectivity in an industrial environment. Designed to be compatible with the SIMATIC IOT2020 and IOT2040 industrial IoT gateways, the new module can be connected directly to local sensors to trigger non-time-critical processes.
Originally launched in late 2016, RS is the sole authorised distributor for the open and flexible SIMATIC IOT2020 industrial IoT gateway, which is an Arduino-compatible device manufactured by Siemens. The IOT2020 is extremely well suited for educational purposes and meets the many requirements of schools and universities to provide students with a platform to gain rapid experience of practical development, as well as enabling start-ups and makers to develop ideas in an open way into professional applications and projects.
