Digital I/O carrier board for the Raspberry Pi
The Digital I/O Carrier Board for the Raspberry Pi single-board computer enables the Pi to sense or switch up to 16 individually selectable electrical loads with solid-state power and reliability. The OPTO-P1-40P adds the ability to connect, monitor, control, and automate billions of existing devices that were previously beyond the Pi’s built-in sensing and control capabilities. The carrier board was designed for developers to build solutions for real-world industrial automation, remote monitoring, and discrete control applications using their Raspberry Pi and I/O modules. The Digital I/O Carrier Board can be attached to their Pi by connecting the included interface cable to their Pi’s 40-pin GPIO connector and snapping the board onto a compatible I/O module mounting rack. The rack’s power supply can be used to power the Pi, and then a Pi-supported programming language can be used to read and write to up to 16 individually selectable digital input and/or output points. The I/O is also designed with single channel flexibility, solid-state technology, and built-in status LED’s.
