The RevPi Flat has various connections which may be needed for your projects. Here you can find out what they are and what you can use them for.
Note: The design of the RevPi Flat implies high protection against undesirable manipulation. For this reason, flashing the image of the RevPi Flat is not possible (in contrast to other RevPi devices).
The linked headings will lead you to the respective detailed information and instructions.
There are two ports with four RJ45 sockets, marked LAN 0 and LAN 1/SWITCH on the housing.
Two USB-A ports are available. This allows you to connect USB 2.0 devices (e.g. USB hard drives, WLAN sticks, etc.).
There is a digital output in the form of a potential-free relay contact. This allows you to switch external devices on and off, for example.
The RevPi Flat has six status LEDs. We have already assigned the “PWR” LED (top right). It indicates whether your RevPi Flat is working properly (green) or if there is a problem (red).
With the button you can perform actions such as the controlled shutdown of the RevPi Flat.
You can operate the RevPi Flat in a typical voltage range with 24 VDC, but also from 12 VDC to 28.8 VDC with restrictions.
Your RevPi Flat has an analog output. Here you can connect actuators working with analog signals common in the industry with 0 – 10 VDC.
Your RevPi Flat has an analog input that you can use either as a current or voltage measurement input. Here you can connect sensors working with analog signals common in the industry with 0 – 10 VDC or 0 – 20 mA.
Your RevPi Flat has two RS485 interfaces. One is designed as a 3-pole socket and one as an RJ11 socket. This allows you to connect sensors for Modbus RTU, for example.
The RevPi Flat has a combined WLAN and Bluetooth connection.
The ISM interface is designed so that you can use it, for example, for Wireless M-Bus applications.
Air flows through the ventilation slots from the bottom to the top of the device and cools the electronics (chimney effect).
