Retrofitting existing setups and prototypes with smart solutions, particularly out-of-the-box devices, is the most effective way to disrupt the cost of implementing IIoT. Raspberry Pi is a popular low-cost choice for prototyping, and now the limitations of Pi in industry don’t have to be prohibitive to its use in IIoT applications. The BB-400 Industrial Edge Controller equips Pi with hardware fit for purpose, an industrial Raspberry Pi that eliminates the need to gamble with a system that doesn’t meet specs. Brainboxes BB-400 Industrial Edge Controller combines industrial hardware connections with the processing power of a Raspberry Pi Compute Module, providing the possibilities of open source software in a simple retrofit way. The BB-400 NeuronEdge combines IO and serial connectivity with a range of network connections to allow data to flow to the application of your choice. The BB-400 uses a Raspberry Pi Compute module and an Arduino to provide edge processing. The Pi is supported by a power management system, including a UPS, making it match the robust demands of industry.
