The open source IIoT gateway RevPi Connect gives users maximum freedom when
implementing IIoT projects due to its open platform concept (including full root rights).
A specially modified Raspbian version with a real time patch is available as an operating system. Common IIoT protocols like MQTT and OPC UA are supported. Individual applications can be programmed via, amongst other things, Node-RED, Phython or directly in C.
Two Ethernet ports enable the device to be simultaneously integrated within the
automation network and the IT network to transmit machinery data from, for example, the shop floor to the Cloud or a superordinate IT system.
A freely configurable hardware watchdog monitors the status of the IIoT gateway, a relay output serves to ensure that connected devices or expansion modules can be monitored or reset respectively. The device additionally has a 24V input to receive shutdown
signals of a UPS.
The modular design of the RevPi Connect enables the 45mm wide base device to be fitted with suitable expansion modules such as IOs, fieldbus gateways and radio modules. The expansion modules can be joined up – plug and play – with the base device via a socket positioned at the top and can be easily configured using a GUI.
In addition to the built-in Modbus RTU and Modbus TCP Master and Slave capability, the RevPi Connect can be integrated with optionally available expansion modules to all common industrial fieldbus or Industrial Ethernet networks.
Optional control and HMI software additionally enable the IIoT gateway to be upgraded to a small industrial controller.
The Open Soruce IIoT Gateway RevPi Connect is available from March 2018.
