A Robust Open Source IPC Based on Raspberry Pi
The powerful RevPi Core 3+ was created for those needing more storage than the RevPi Core 3 provides.
The quad-core RevPi Core 3+ comes equipped with the Raspberry Pi Compute Module 3 for the ultimate in high performance for complex tasks such as image processing. RevPi Core 3+ comes equipped with an adapted Raspbian Jessie with an RT patch. In addition to quadrupling the number of CPUs (Broadcom BCM2837B0), improvements to this latest version include 1 GB of RAM and 1.2 GHz clock rate, and 8-32 GB of eMMC flash memory.
Consisting of open hardware and software, the RevPi Core 3+ IPC meets the EN61131-2 standard. Its modular design allows for it to be enhanced with digital and analogue I/O modules as well as appropriate fieldbus gateways. Mounted in a DIN rail housing, the RevPi Core 3+ has USB, ethernet and HDMI ports, and runs on the standard industrial 24-volt power supply.
Lastly, the RevPi Core 3+ has Master and Slave capabilities for the two highly popular communication protocols Modbus TCP and Modbus RTU. Expensive external gateways are no longer required. The RevPi Core 3+ is therefore an economical and logical choice for use as an industrial PC.
