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. Addressable via general-purpose I/O and programmable via high-level languages, the rugged IOT2000 module, or shield, is CE and UL certified and designed for 24/7 industrial operation. The range of I/O available includes five 24V digital inputs and two outputs, and two selectable analogue inputs, which offer 9-bit resolution and range from 0 to 10V or 0 to 20mA.
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. RS also recently signed a contract with Arduino that enables the IOT2020 to be marketed via the Arduino.cc shop https://store.arduino.cc/siemens-simatic-iot2020 and other sources.
The IOT2020 is the subject of an ongoing competition from the Hackster developer community at: https://www.hackster.io/contests/IOT2020.
