Kontron has announced the availability of two new commercial computer systems, the KBox A-330-RPI and KBox A-330-MX6, in particular, designed for price-touchy control and gateway packages.
The KBox A-330-RPI is based at the long-time period available Raspberry Pi Compute Module CM3+ and might use the massive software pool of the Raspberry Pi network.
Equipped with a Broadcom BCM2837 Quad CoreT Arm processor, the KBox A-330-RPI is well matched with the setup Raspberry Pi standards and has been superior with business features, allowing builders to create packages for demanding and cruel business environments.
The KBox A-330-MX6 differs from the KBox A-330-RPI mainly because of the Dual Core i.MX6 processor from NXP, that’s, just like the Raspberry Pi Compute Module CM3+, long term available. In addition, the variant based at the NXP processor offers additional industrial protocol stacks inclusive of EtherCAT, PROFINET, Modbus, and CANopen to allow clients to without difficulty combine manipulate software.
Both variants are fanless and were designed for industrial manipulate and gateway duties on top of things shelves due to their slender layout and the opportunity of DIN rail mounting. Two Fast Ethernet ports, RS232, RS485 or CAN and 4 I/O ports are to be had as interfaces. A powerful user interface can be operated for the duration of commissioning or in the goal software via two USB channels and an HDMI connection.
With the KBox A-330 family, Kontron offers an industrial grade platform that allows connection to numerous verbal exchange stages, serves as a gateway for IoT packages and can combine sensors and actuators.
As an operating machine, Kontron offers Yocto Linux for the KBox A-330-MX6 and Raspbian for the KBox A-330-RPI. On an undertaking basis, applications are realizable that encompass superior safety functions such as at ease authentication and data encryption that go past ordinary safety requirements.
In conjunction with the modular IoT software framework, SUSiEtec from Kontron’s sister organization S&T Technologies, any applications and cloud solutions available on the market also can be connected and supported to increase IoT packages or establish new enterprise fashions.
