The KUNBUS range of products includes 14 new lines, including industrial computers, PLCs and data acquisition and human-machine interface (HMI) devices. A key series from KUNBUS is the Revolution Pi series of open-source and modular industrial PCs, based on the well-established Raspberry Pi platform.
This innovative and reliable modular system, which meets the EN61131-2 international standard for PLCs, offers a series of central processing units including the RevPi Connect, RevPi Core and RevPi Core 3. Installed in DIN-rail housings, all the products come with USB, Ethernet and HDMI connections and are based around the Raspberry Pi Compute module, making them highly compatible with the Raspberry Pi model 3 or Raspberry Pi B+. Depending on application requirements, these base modules can be expanded seamlessly using the appropriate digital or analogue I/O modules, as well as fieldbus gateways to connect them to an industrial network.
For example, due to its open platform concept, the RevPi Connect gateway provides users with maximum freedom when implementing IIoT projects, including full root rights. Implemented as a DIN-rail PC, or purely as a small control unit, the system uses a specially modified version of the Raspbian operating system with a real-time patch, as well as supporting common IIoT protocols such as MQTT and OPC UA. Individual applications can be programmed using a range of languages including Node-RED, Python, or directly in C.
