One of the biggest changes is the addition of a second Ethernet port. The ED-HMI2120-101C has two RS485 jacks, one of which offers optional PoE. It also now has the option of wireless network connectivity via 4G LTE support. Storage-wise, users can now connect an M.2 NVMe SSD instead of relying on onboard memory and microSD cards.

Edatec has also expanded the support ED-HMI2120-101C has for DC input with a range between 9V and 36V. It’s capable of powering external peripherals, like a second LCD screen, with an output of 12V. You can connect up to three devices using these 12V DC outputs.

Software-wise, the ED-HMI2120-101C is designed to work with Raspberry Pi OS. A few additional drivers are necessary to make use of all the tools, modules and features that come with the panel.
