What a Raspberry Pi B needs is a nice comfortable case to sit in with easy access to the IO and power inputs right, is there such a thing?
The Raspberry Pi single-board computer is already a hugely popular low-cost solution to home users and hobbyists alike when creating media servers, control systems and other projects. It’s, therefore, no real surprise that the products are now finding themselves within the industrial market space as controllers, monitors and safety devices.
The challenge faced by design engineers is how to ensure their unit can be used within the industrial area especially if all associated devices are mounted on a DIN rail. In other circumstances, the device may need to be mounted on a wall or simply stay on a desktop and the number of enclosure options available can become overwhelming.
At Phoenix Contact we have two dedicated solutions for housing a Raspberry Pi B+. The first is the industrial RPI-BC case which is designed to either be mounted on a DIN rail or wall. The enclosure offers easy access to the I/O, power and memory card whilst mounted on the DIN rail with no need to remove the cover or the unit from the DIN rail itself. The case will accommodate other Raspberry Pi single-board computers offering complete flexibility when looking to utilise these innovative single board computers within the industrial arena.
The latest solution is the UCS-RPI which is part of the new universal case system (UCS) and is available in 2 sizes in either grey or black colour. If you require Din rail, wall or even tabletop mounting we have solutions to meet your needs with this new case system. The UCS is available as standard in 4 different sizes, 2 colours and 2 height options and has the added flexibility of removable flat sidewalls for any customisation requirements you may have.
If you are serious about using single board computers or developing your own embedded system, for an industrial application we have an enclosure solution for you with the innovation and flexibility you’ve come to expect from a world-leading manufacturer.
