KUNBUS has followed up the RevPi Core by launching the RevPi Core 3. Equipped with the latest Compute Module 3 from Raspberry Pi, it has a 1.2 GHz Quad Core processor with 1 GB RAM and 4GB eMMC flash memory. RevPi Core 3 provides control applications like, for example, image processing.
Consisting of open hardware and software, the industrial PC RevPi Core 3 meets the EN61131-2 standard and, thanks to its modular structure, can be enhanced with digital and analogue I/O modules as well as suitable fieldbus gateways. The hardware therefore fulfils all the prerequisites for a small controller suitable for industrial use. Mounted in a DIN rail housing, the RevPi Core 3 has USB, ethernet and HDMI ports. The basic and enhanced modules both run on the standard industrial 24-volt power supply.
As its operating system, RevPi Core 3 is equipped with an adapted Raspbian Jessie with a real time patch and a variety of features. Amongst other things, the RevPi Core 3 has Master and Slave capabilities for the two communication protocols Modbus TCP and Modbus RTU.
Users of the predecessor model RevPi Core installed with Raspbian Wheezy have a lot to look forward to: from the start of June, Raspbian Jessie can be downloaded free of charge for RevPi Core users.
