10 Raspberry Pi (SBC) based Products

Without a doubt, Raspberry Pi is a great initiative and a great embedded computer board for education and for the makers. But, there are many limitations that make it a less likely choice for a commercial product. If you are interested to learn those aspects, read here.

Inspite of those limitations when I did detailed research online, I found various products based on the Raspberry Pi Board(SBC). Hope the information presented here is helpful for you.

List of products using Raspberry Pi (SBC)

1. Iono Pi

Iono Pi is an extremely versatile I/O module that combines several digital and analog input lines, power relay outputs and support for standard interfaces, typical of a modern PLC, with the powerful computing core of the Raspberry Pi.

6. Andino X1

The Andino X1 is a microcontroller board in a DIN rail housing. It is used to adapt digital inputs and outputs for a maximum voltage of 24 volts. The X1 has its own microcontroller, a signal preprocessing and adaptation of signal generators and actuators. Optionally, a Raspberry Pi (Model B) computer board can be plugged in. The communication between the microcontroller and the Pi takes place via the UART interface.

7. Andino X2

The X2 includes both the Raspberry Pi 3 B+ and an Arduino compatible microcontroller (ATMega164P with 12Mhz). The microcontroller enables the precise pre-processing of data and signals and the adaptation of hardware interfaces. Together with the integrated Power supply (84V..230V AC), it is a complete small industrial PC. The Andino X2 is also available with an integrated 2G/EDGE Modem witch enabled the remote Data collection.

Andino X2
  • DIN rail housing 12 units, TS35, DIN DIN EN 43880
  • Integrated Raspberry Pi 3 B+
  • power supply 85V – 230V AC
  • Software Switchable Voltage Output (24 Volt)
  • Integrated Arduino-compatible Atmel controller
  • 3 Digital In – isolated 5kV 3 Relay out, 240V 3A
  • Optional available with integrated 2G / EDGE Modem

8. Andino IO

The Andino IO, like its little brother, is the Andino X1, a motherboard for the Raspberry Pi. It allows mounting on a DIN rail in the control cabinet. The Andino IO is great for applications in data acquisition in the field e.g.

  • production machines
  • Energy data monitoring
  • Capture environmental data Interface conversions

By the use of a LoraWAN, a 2G or a 4G Modem it is well suited for the data collection in the field!
