If you want to get the inside line on what's happening on your production line then the BB-400 NeuronEdge controller from Brainboxes can help you.

The BB-400 can sense, sort and send your machine data to minimise downtime, speed up response time and maximise your profits. It combines industrial hardware connections with the processing power of a Raspberry Pi Compute Module 3+ to give you the possibilities of open source software in a simple retrofit way, unlocking the potential of your equipment.

The BB-400 links Brainboxes' proven IO and serial connectivity with a range of network connections to allow data to flow to the application of your choice. The innovative design uses a Raspberry Pi Compute module and an Arduino to provide edge processing.

The Pi is supported by a power management system, enabling it to meet the demands of industry. The device offers the flexibility of PC systems with open source API programming options to make integration and customisation user friendly.

This can be done through a preferred programming language, such as C# and Python or visually in Node-RED, circumventing many of the interoperability issues that have traditionally hampered integrated automation.

  • 8 Digital IO lines
  • Works with common 0 to 30V sensors
  • Ethernet port for wider network
  • Ethernet port for LAN network
  • Extendable Wi-Fi antenna
  • Bluetooth for wireless sensors
  • UPS power management prevents corruption
  • Dual redundant 5 to 30V DC power supply
  • Raspberry Pi Compute 3+ module and Arduino processing power
  • Edge processing sends relevant data to your application or to the cloud
  • Highly compatible open source software
  • Customise with APIs and Docker containers, REST, Websockets, or .NET APIs
  • Program in your favourite language or use out-of-the-box applications
