The RevPi Connect+ feat. CODESYS

Industrial Raspberry Pi with fully integrated CODESYS Runtime
[Разрыв обтекания текста]The RevPi Connect+ feat. CODESYS can be used as a powerful, industrial small controller for a variety of different automation tasks and represents a real alternative to complex and cost-intensive PLCs. The RevPi Connect+ feat. CODESYS consists — as the name already
indicates — of a RevPi Connect+ and a multicore capable CODESYS Control runtime system.

Important information

With the included CODESYS WebVisu, user interfaces or visualization masks can be generated and displayed on PCs, tablets
or smartphones via all common browsers. This eliminates the need for separate HMI software.

Special features:

The RevPi Connect+ base module:
can be expanded by a variety of digital and analog I/O and gateway expansion modules. All RevPi expansion modules* have been seamlessly integrated into CODESYS and can be controlled and configured via the integrated development environment. The CODESYS Runtime inherently supports many fieldbus or Industrial Ethernet protocols such as PROFINET, EtherCAT, EtherNet/IP or CANopen and thus enables the use of the RevPi
as a soft PLC in such networks.

In addition to running the CODESYS Control runtime, individual applications can of course still be installed or be programmed via Node-RED, Python or directly in C, among others – just like with the „standard“ RevPi Connect+.[Разрыв обтекания текста][Разрыв обтекания текста]Use the RevPi Connect+ as a soft PLC in the following industrial networks, among others

Technical information RevPi Connect+

RevPi Connect+ features a full range of important interfaces
  • Two ethernet ports
Two RJ45 ethernet ports enable the device to be simultaneously integrated within two separated networks.
  • RS485 connector
A 4 pole RS485 connector to connect for example a Modbus RTU sensor.
  • Two USB connectors
The RevPi Connect+ is equipped with two USB-A connectors at the front side which can be used for USB 2.0 client devices. Both connectors can dr
ive up to 500 mA at their 5 V supply pins. Therefore you may plug USB drives or surf sticks directly into these connectors without the need for an active USB hub.
  • Micro USB connector
You can connect an USB Host system (usually a PC) with the RevPi Connect+ using the Micro-USB connector in the middle of the front plate.
The RevPi Connect+ will then boot in passive eMMC access mode and behave like an USB client memory stick. That way you may flash the module
for the first time using an image file from a PC.
  • Micro HDMI connector
One Micro-HDMI plug, e.g. for connecting a video monitor.
Real industrial suitability
One of our key goals was to give the Raspberry Pi real industrial capability
to turn it into a true industrial compact controller. For this reason, the DIN rail housing of the RevPi Connect+ is fitted with robust 24 V industrial hardware that complies with the EN61131-2 standard.
