Rpi connected breadboard
Breadboard connection to digital and analog sensors.
Breadboard connected to actuators, eg motors and solenoids.
Might work for many times and then cause severe damage.
A general solution for all kinds of sensors and actuators
In the last couple of years, I have been playing with over 50 sensors
and actuators. Usually I start with a bread board, and a
adjustable/band select 3V3/5V/12V/24V/30V PSU from 1A to 25A (for 7V
servos and 12V solenoids)
Breadboard is only for prototyping. When I make sure my testing
circuit work, I would move to protoboads, of size 4x4 cm, 5x7, 7x10
(most commonly used), 10 x15, ups to 20x30 cm（A4 size）， with 2/3mm
fibre glass and 3/4/5 mm acyrlic base. Below are two types of
I usually use separate boards for ADCs and sensors, and usually one
ADC or one sensor for one board, sometimes 4 ADC and 6 sensors on one
I think you begin to see the complexity of structuring the
protoboards. All my big and small proto boards are stackable, and I
usually stack up to 4 or 5 board to make a tower, and some or my
projects consists of 6 or 8 towers each up to 30 cm high, with power
and data cables all mingled.
I usually us DuPont connectors for signals, and Tanika connectors for
power. The Rpi almost always has it own PSU, so that I can hot plug
the signal cables of senors and actuators with or without connecting
Because there are many kinds of signal cables: UART, SPI, I2C, GPIO,
3V3 and 5V0, so I need to colour code the cables. And often each
group of actuators and sensor have their own dedicated power supply,
so I can separately power off/on one group of devices, ...
So you see it is not practical to do what you wish to do. And this is
my answer. :)
Perhaps I should later show you some of my breadboards and protoboards
and protoboard towers. I used to have industrial grade 19" rack
mounts to hold the low profile towers, but I found them not flexible.
So for now I only use racks without walls and covers (except for
200VAC mains components), for easy maintenance.
This GPS sensor modules have 15 meters DB9 serial cable, 3 metr active annetna, therefore not practical to secure to a breadboard. :)

Though I don't have a big, universal piece of hardware, as the OP says for all things, but I do have smaller pieces of smaller pieces of hardware, in the form of protoboards, each for a small group of ADC/senor/actuator below is an example, it is a sort of semi hot plugable, reusable, protoboard for generic SPI/I2C/UART devices. The routing cables has buffer/temporary/easily replacable middleman type short cables, which when worn out after a big number of plugging/unplugging, can be easily replaced, without any necessity to replace the permanent long cables. The temporary cables also are cable tied to the brass spacing post to do strain relief. These things are what I have been doing these years, and should satisfy part of the OP's requirements! :)
