RASPBERRY PLC 21 (8GB)
PLC Raspberry Pi - Highlights
The PLC Raspberry Pi most important features. From improve speed process, use a wide range of connections and secure your data and your operating system.
UPS - UNINTERRUPTED POWER SUPPLY
Secure your operating system, your current processes and your data with the uninterrupted power supply that guarantees a clean shutdown in case of a power failure.
HIGH PROCESSING SPEED
The Raspberry Pi allow processing at high speed compared to most common PLCs.
Work with applications in real time and allowing multiprocess.
LINUX or Raspberry Pi OS (previously called Raspbian)
All the power, flexibility and features of the Linux Operating System. Use Linux or Raspberry Pi OS (previously called Raspbian), the Debian based solution from Raspberry Pi.
MULTIPLE CONNECTIVITY, MULTIPLE OPTIONS
Thanks to the dual Ethernet ports, the dual RS-485, WiFI, Bluetooth and other options, you can connect to numerous devices and to use multiple protocols and communication ports.
RTC - REAL TIME CLOCK
A great number of applications require working with RTC. The PLC Raspberry Pi allows you the use of this feature with the internal clock that guarantees the current time and date to keep track of the right time.
Raspberry Pi PLC details
Industrial Automation with the high speed and power of the Raspberry Pi.
This equipment based on the Raspberry Pi technology is designed for a professional use. This PLC has up to 36 Digital Inputs, 16 Analog Inputs, 22 Digital Outputs, 8 Analog Outputs, up to 23 Relay and 6 Interrupt.
It also contains several communication ports, which provide great flexibility and control. The Raspberry PLC family offers double Ethernet port, double RS-485, WiFi, Bluetooth.
This PLC runs a Linux or a Raspberry Pi OS (previously called Raspbian), a Debian based operating system with all the flexibility and power that the Linux operating system offers.
