Delivery release for the IO shield for the industrial IoT gateway SIMATIC IOT2000

  • Entry
  • Associated product(s)
The SIMATIC IOT2000 IO shield is available with immediate effect.

With its digital and analog IOs, the SIMATIC IOT2000 IO shield allows the direct connection of non-time-critical sensor data to the SIMATIC IOT2000.

The essential highlights:

  • High industrial functionality
  • Arduino shield with 5x DI, 2x DO and 2x AI
  • Fast assembly, as the suitable cover and fastening material are included in delivery
  • Industrial design
  • Use of the industry-standard voltage ranges (e.g. 24 V with digital in)
  • Tested environmental conditions, such as IOT2040 (e.g. for 0 .. 50° C)
  • Approvals such as IOT2040 (CE UL)
  • Developed and tested for 24/7 operation
  • Highest degree of variability for creating applications
  • The module addressing via GPIOs allows the arbitrary selection of the programming language and development environment.

Target applications

  • Direct connection of
    • sensors
    • Actuators (in particular lights, buzzers)
  • Forwarding of data to higher-level units, e.g. to a cloud

Technical support and application support from Siemens Industry Online Forum:
