Saelig Company, Inc. has introduced the ComfilePi CPi-A150WR, an industrial PC with a 15” touch-panel display that leverages the ubiquitous Raspberry Pi 3 board, this inherits the Raspberry Pi 3’s 1.2GHz 64 bit quad-core ARM Cortex-A53 processor, a Broadcom VideoCore IV GPU, and 1GB of RAM.
The new device supports AdvancedHMI software, based on the .NET framework which uses the popular Visual Studio Design environment. The AdvancedHMI enables the creation of HMIs that are not possible with other off-the-shelf package and it creates a true, fast executable for the Linux based ComfilePi.
The CPi-A150WR is designed with a 24-bit color LCD with a resistive touchscreen, it also consists of a controller that provides 22 x ESD-protected GPIO lines, 3 x USB 2.0 host ports, 1 x RJ-45 Ethernet port, 1 x I2C port, 1 x RS-485 port, a 1 x RS-232C port, and a battery-backed RTC.
The device consists of a stereo audio output and a piezo buzzer and it can be powered with a 12-24VDC 21W power input. WiFi is also possible using an external USB dongle. Housed in a flame-retardant ABS enclosure with IP65 water-resistant front panel, the CPi-A150WR can be operated at a temperature range of 0°C to 70°C.
