Businesses looking to use the awesome Raspberry Pi mini PC for industrial uses may be interested in a new expansion card in the form of the Raspberry Pi MEGA-IO design specifically for industrial applications. Features of the new Raspberry Pi MEGA-IO industrial expansion card include 4-20mA & 0-10V In/Out, Opto-Isolated In/Open Drain Out, 10A/250V Relays, RS585, CAN, 1 Wire, Real Time Clock, Interrupts as well as the ability to stack for together.
Watch the demonstration video below to learn more about the latest creation from Mihai Beffa based in Cupertino, California. “In September 2017 we launched the MEGA-IO Expansion Card for Raspberry Pi. We crammed eight relays, eight 12-bit ADC channels, 12-bit DAC, eight opto-isolated inputs, four open collector outputs and six GPIO’s into the same form factor with Raspberry Pi. The main target of the Mega-IO card is the Home Automation, DIY user. The Mega-IO Industrial version (MegaIO-IND) brings a low cost solution to the control of industrial processes.”
