You order a Raspberry PLC, the PLC is shipped to you, and once you unpack it, what else? How do you access it to be able to see the terminal?

You can either access to the Raspberry PLC remotely, as you can see  HERE >>>
, or you can access using an HDMI cable, as we will learn in this blog post.


HDMI stands for High Definition Multimedia Interface and is the most frequently used HD signal for transferring both high definition audio and video over a single cable.

So, if you could not access to the Raspberry PLC through SSH, there is still another way to access to the Raspberry Pi based PLC.

For this, you will need at least one of these options:

  • A cable from microHDMI to HDMI, an extra monitor, an extra keyboard, an obviously, the power supply.

  • A microHDMI adapter, a cable from HDMI to HDMI, an extra keyboard and monitor. And the power supply.

Now, follow these steps:

1- Switch on the monitor

2- Connect the keyboard to the USB of the Raspberry PLC. Optionally, if your Raspberry PLC image is graphical, you will also need a mouse.

3- Connect the micro HDMI cable from the Raspberry PLC to the HDMI port of the monitor.

4- Power on the Raspberry PLC from the power supply.

 It is very important that you do not switch steps 3 and 4, because the screen may not turn on correctly.

Finally, with all these indications, there will not be any way that you are not allowed to access to your industrial PLC!
