New

The brand new RevPi Connect 4 is a modular, open-source device based on the Raspberry Pi CM4, powered by a Broadcom BCM2711 processor. It has up to 32 GB eMMC memory, optional WLAN/Bluetooth, and can be expanded with up to ten I/O modules. It has multiple interfaces, an integrated RTC, hardware watchdog, and HAT EEPROM. The pre-installed Raspberry Pi OS is customized and supports Modbus RTU/TCP, MQTT, and OPC UA protocols. Custom app development is possible with Node-RED, Python, and C. The modular design allows for easy expansion with digital/analog I/Os, fieldbus gateways, and radio modules.

New features:

  • Faster processor (Broadcom BCM2711)
  • WLAN and Bluetooth support
  • Easier I/O expansion with plug-and-play GUI
  • Real-time clock (RTC) now battery-buffered
