HOUSING SYSTEM PUTS RASPBERRY PI TO INDUSTRIAL USE

RS Components (RS) is helping to push the Raspberry Pi single-board computer into the industrial world with the addition of a range of enclosures from Phoenix Contact. As well as providing industrial-level protection for the SBC, the housings feature a large range of expansion options for design flexibility.

The RPI-BC DIN-rail enclosure system is compatible with Raspberry Pi model A+, B+, Pi 2 and Pi3 Model B boards. The enclosures can be used to set up multiple Raspberry Pi computers and I/O modules connected to a single DIN-rail to form a complete system via the HBUS. Optional perfboards or other PCBs can be mounted into a housing with a Raspberry Pi and connect with the HBUS using a pin strip connector.

The housing system simplifies installation, with tool-free mounting on a TS35 DIN-rail or on a wall using a base latch. The housing also complies with DIN43880 and allows users to connect the GPIO strip to sensors or the power supply with PTSM connectors. The Raspberry Pi’s microSD card can be replaced and backed up while still mounted in the system.

The Phoenix Contact portfolio currently available from RS includes the complete RPI-BC Housing System, as well as the major component parts. All the parts come in light grey polycarbonate with an IP20 rating, and are suitable for operation over a full -40 to +105°C industrial temperature range. RS also offers a large range of RPI-BC accessories, including adapters and socket and pin strips for connecting up perfboards and compatible PCBs.
