Raspberry Pi3 System emPC-A/RPI3

Despite many misgivings, the Raspberry Pi has shown that it is capable of meeting industrial demands. Even if it may not be suitable for the most critical automation tasks, there are numerous application fields in peripheral areas of the Automation sector, where Janz Tec AG's emPC A/RPI2 systems do an excellent job. Thus, Janz Tec now presents the emPC-A/RPI3 with a Raspberry Pi 3 module.

The new emPC-A/RPI3 system is based on the original design and is an enhanced version of the tried-and-tested emPC-A/RPI2. Instead of a Raspberry Pi 2 module, this embedded system now uses the current module, Raspberry Pi 3. The system almost looks the same as the previous model, but the new CPU module means that, on the inside, it has quite a few interesting new features, especially for automation scenarios. The system not only delivers enhanced performance, it also has two interfaces for mobile communication, Bluetooth and , that can be used to create ad hoc networks for mobile machines. The operating system is still a Raspbian Jessie Light. Like the previous model, the new version also offers CODESYS and various CAN tools.
