This month RS Components has introduced KUNBUS to its supplier portfolio, offering a specialist developer of intelligent communications modules, including fieldbus and industrial Ethernet-based devices for a range of automation markets. 14 new lines including industrial computers, PLCs and data acquisition and human-machine interface (HMI) devices are now available from RS components.
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. The KUNBUS portfolio of industrial communication modules, including the Revolution PI series, is now shipping from RS in the EMEA and Asia Pacific regions.
“Gateways such as the KUNBUS Gateway enable continuous and reliable communication between different networks and systems. The KUNBUS Gateway converts all data that the target network can transfer. It omits non-transferrable data and adds necessary data in the new network. Thus, the operators can transfer all necessary data from one closed network to another.”
“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.”
