We are living in a fast paced society whereby information is moving at a incredible rate. The infrastructure has evolved from traditional mail to fax to email. Despite its speed, the device is still shrinking in size. Gone are the days when people were buying big and bulky devices.
I still remember that my first personal computer was the 486 Compaq (It was the state of the art at that time). It came with a huge CRT monitor.
I could never imagine over the course of 20 years, the computer could shrink even further to a pocket size. Enter the new generation of micro-computing, the Raspberry Pi; the single board computer. Since its introduction in 2012, Raspberry Pi devices has sold over 10 Million set.
The Raspberry Pi’s application is limited by our own imagination. This could range from hobbies to professional applications which require high-quality, functional enclosures and connection technology (e.g Home Automation).
The professional devices need to be assembled and used in installation distributors or control cabinets in a safe way and in accordance with the applicable standards – especially if they are part of a commercial building or industrial automation solution. It is also essential to have simple and reliable wiring – when connecting sensors to the general purpose IO (GPIO), for example – if the Raspberry Pi is being used in a production environment. Furthermore, wiring should be completed quickly, and connecting GPIOs to expansion boards should not require additional time-consuming steps, especially during assembly.
To cater for such needs, Phoenix Contact produced the RPI-BC, the Raspiberry Pi enclosure solution.
Advantages such as
- Plug and Play. Tool-free mounting
- Spacious for additional PCB boards
- GPIO strip can be used with compact size PTSM series connectors
- Easy module-to-module connection via bus connector and DIN rails
