Safely and reliably sense and switch 5-60 VDC, 120 VAC, and 240 VAC loads with a Raspberry Pi®
Raspberry Pi is a trademark of the Raspberry Pi Foundation.
Raspberry Pi, I/O modules, mounting rack, and power supply all sold separately.
With Opto 22’s Digital I/O Carrier Board for Raspberry Pi, you can use industrially hardened digital input/output (I/O) modules with your Raspberry Pi.
Use your Pi to switch industrial-level electrical loads far beyond the Pi’s built in 3.3 VDC GPIO pins.
Monitor and control electrical loads required for real-world devices like industrial motors, pumps, and sensors.
Perfect for prototyping, proofs of concept, and environments in which an industrially hardened controller isn’t required.
The Carrier Board works with any model Pi with a 40-pin header connector. Just insert the carrier board’s interface cable onto your Pi’s GPIO connector, and snap the board onto a compatible Opto 22 rack.
Use the rack’s power supply to power the Pi, and then use your favorite Pi-supported programming language to read and write to up to 16 digital I/O points.

What about Analog I/O?
Currently, the Pi Carrier board works only with Opto 22 and compatible digital-only racks that offer a 40-pin header, all from the on/off GPIO pins on your Pi.
However, the Pi Carrier board also exposes the remaining pins of the Pi’s 40-pin interface for access to the 1-wire, I2C, or SPI pins for compatible sensors or devices that offer more than on/off sensing and control.
In addition, Opto 22 offers a vast array of analog, serial, and special purpose modules with our SNAP Ethernet I/O system. Our software libraries, SDKs, and Node-RED nodes available on this developer site show how to programmatically access this I/O through the Ethernet port of the Pi.
