The heart of the revolution
RevPi Core 3 is the latest version of the RevPi Core, the base module of Revolution Pi. 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 BCM2837), improvements to this latest version include 1 GB of RAM and 1.2 GHz clock rate. Like its predecessor, it has 4 GB of eMMC flash memory.
Consisting of open hardware and software, the [industrial PC] RevPi Core 3 meets the EN61131-2 standard and, because of its modular structure, can 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.
