Extension for Arduino Mega series. It allows to easily connect more than 25 TinkerKit sensors, actuators and serial devices to the main board.
The shield has a built in voltage regulator in order to supply extra power to the digital IOs in order to fulfill the power needings of a fully populated plaform.

The Mega Sensor Shield v.2 allows you to hook up the TinkerKit SENSORS and ACTUATORS directly to the Arduino Mega or Mega 2560 or Mega ADK, without the use of the breadboard.
It has 22 standard TinkeKit 3pin connectors. The 10 labeled I0 through I9 are Analog Inputs. The ones labeled O0 through O5 are Analog Outputs connected to the PWM capable outputs of the Arduino Board (it is possible to change these to Digital Inputs, in which case they will report either HIGH or LOW, but nothing in between).
On a Standard Arduino Mega 2560 board the pins are:
The one labeled IO (D13, D12, D8, D7, D4, D2) are Input / Output pins capable of PWM, digitalRead and digitalWrite. They correspond to Digital 13, 12, 8, 7, 4, 2.

The 4pin TWI socket allows communication to any device supporting the I2C protocol through the Wire library on Arduino. 5V and Ground are provided on the socket.
4 4pin SERIAL socket allows the board to communicate with other devices that support serial communication. 5V and Ground are provided on the socket for your convenience.
