The IOT2020 gateway is compatible with most Arduino sketches that can be uploaded directly from the Arduino IDE. Many other programs can be compiled and or run under Yocto Linux on the used controller X1000 SOC (X86). Third-party hardware such as PLCs and sensors from various different brands can be integrated via Ethernet or Serial (via USB adapter) using many available and open protocols including Modbus, Profinet, REST or MQTT
The IOT2020 is also compatible with Arduino shields and various programming languages, including high-level languages such as Java, C++ and Python via a range of IDEs that includes Eclipse and compilers for Yocto Linux. It is also expandable via an on-board mPCIe port. Node-Red, MQTT and SQLITE3 can also be used to connect and control local and remote peripherals, such as sensors on a device.

Hi Heiko. Frederick Vandenbosch has made a good 3d-printed cover design for that 3rd display you show in your post.
@peteroakes That's really helpful thank you so much. PS Thanks also for all the great videos on the IOT2020. They too have helped me hugely.
@Mldavies The COIL voltage of the relay would be the rating compatable with the IOT2020 outputs, so typically up to ~30V (24V normally for industrial) but the IOT2020 IO module can also handle 12V so you...
Hi Peter. Thanks, yes, I purchased this at the same time as the IOT2020. I was looking for advice on selecting relays. I want to use the IOT2020 via the IOShield to switch a 12V power supply to the solenoid...
Have you considered this as an option https://uk.rs-online.com/web/p/plc-i-o-modules/1354133/
Especially for educational purposes it is required to have an easy-to-get-started solution. I just found a training board especially made for the educational sector on Kaftan Media. Looks really exciting...
