RevPi Connect features a full range of important interfaces
Connect RevPi Core to a LAN by using the RJ45 Ethernet connector.
The RevPi Core is equipped with two USB-A connectors at the front side which can be used for USB 2.0 client devices. Both connectors can drive 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.
You can connect an USB Host system (usually a PC) with the RevPi Core using the Micro-USB connector in the middle of the front plate. The RevPi Core 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.
One Micro-HDMI plug, e.g. for connecting a video monitor.
One of our major goals was to make Raspberry Pi ready for tough industrial enviroment, so it could become a real IPC which meets the EN61131-2 standard.
- Power supply: min. 10.7 V, max. 28.8 V, max. 10 W
- Operating temperature: -40 to 55 °C*
- ESD protection: 4 kV / 8 kV according to EN61131-2 and IEC 61000-6-2
- Surge / Burst tests: applied according to EN61131-2 and IEC 61000-6-2 using power supply inputs , Ethernet line and IO lines
- EMI tests: according to EN61131-2 and IEC 61000-6-2
* Not having heavy USB loads and providing a free heat emission of the housing we have operated RevPi Core up to 65 °C at 24 V input supply voltage without any problems. We can’t guarantee cold start of a cooled down system at ambient temperatures less than -30 °C using 24 V power supply voltage – This applies only to RevPi Core with single-core processor BCM2835
Revolution Pi comes with master and slave capability for the popular Modbus RTU and Modbus TCP network protocols. External gateways are therefore in most cases no longer necessary when using these two network protocols.
Modbus TCP works with the Ethernet interface available on the RevPi Core (i. e. via the RJ45 socket on the front panel) or any other Ethernet connection (e. g. USB WLAN adapter) that is supported by the TCP/IP protocol.
Modbus RTU requires a TTY device under Linux. Since the existing UART interface of the compute module is already reserved for the PiBridge and therefore not available, a USB to serial converter such as an RS485 converter is required (not included in scope of delivery).
The configuration is done via the browser-based, graphical configuration software PiCtory.
