Raspberry Pi industrial Computer

Our team at Techbase, have put this article together to explain how amazing and powerful the Raspberry Pi industrial computer really is. This amazing little device packs a lot of power and really will allow users from all backgrounds to engage and discover just how dynamite does come in small packages.


The Raspberry Pi industrial computer used components of the Raspberry Pi which is essentially a bare-bones personal computer with a Linux operating system installed. They are incredibly cheap, with the models costing either USD $25 or USD $35. This system has essentially been created by the Raspberry Pi foundation in an effort to encourage young people to learn how to code and do computer programming, something that surprisingly few young people are getting into in this era of walled gardens and complete, closed off consoles. This tiny credit-card sized computer plugs into your TV and a keyboard. It is a capable little computer which can be used for electronics projects, and for many of the things that your conventional desktop PC does, like spreadsheets, word-processing and games. It also plays high-definition video. The Raspberry Pi industrial computer is also revolutionising how industrial automation is being incorporated into factories all over the world.

 Using the intelligence behind the Raspberry Pi, our team of engineers at Techbase, designed and developed the ModBerry 500 Raspberry Pi industrial computer which is a series of industrial computers which you can easily adapt to your industrial needs.

The Modberry 500 Raspberry Pi industrial computer is made up of the following components:

  • Raspberry Pi compute module
  • 512 MB RAM and 4GB NAND FLASH memory
  • Rich set of I/O interfaces: including digital and analog
  • inputs/outputs, RS-232/RS-485 serial ports
  • Economic 1-Wire bus, typically used for reading
  • temperature and humidity sensors
  • Expandable hardware resources: LTE/3G/GPRS, WiFi, ZigBee

Through intelligent design we are able to use the Modberry 500 Raspberry Pi industrial computer to assist in the following industries:

  • automation,
  • telecommunications,
  • remote supervision,
  • monitoring

The Modberry 500 Raspberry Pi industrial computer is designed along the same lines as the Raspberry pi, in that our system is built on a  fully conconfigurable platform – thereby allowing you as the client to setup hardware options of your device that will suit your particular needs. Included is also a full range of communications interfaces, including LTE/3G/GPRS modem. Standard protocol support (e.g. MODBUS, SNMP), allowing for the possibility to install dedicated user protocols. Web page visualization of current/archived data and remote control directly from the device or cloud service.
