This board aims mainly to combine high quality industrial hardware with an ease of programming through MicroPython. This allows engineers to implement very rapidly a prototype or a product.

The board run with a nominal 24V power input and dispose over 24V digital inputs and outputs pins. Moreover the board dispose over the most relevant industrial communication interfaces, such as Ethernet, Can Bus, RS232, RS422 and RS485. An SD Card slot adds the possibility to store big amounts of data. The RTC battery powers the clock also when power off, such that the datetime is known at restart. The board may be run also with a 5V power input through the Micro-USB. In this case only the 3.3V multipurpose pins can be used. Firmware and Software update are possible.
