Saelig Company has introduced the ComfilePi CPi-A150WR - a Raspberry Pi-based industrial PC with a 15" touch-panel display. Leveraging the compact, universal Raspberry Pi 3 board, the device inherits the Pi's 1.2GHz 64-bit quad-core ARM Cortex-A53 processor, a Broadcom VideoCore IV GPU, and 1GB of RAM. This new, larger version offers the same abilities as its predecessors with smaller screen sizes: the 7" CPi-A070WR and the 10.2" CPi-A102WR. All models in the series support AdvancedHMI software, based on the .NET framework, which employs the popular Visual Studio design environment. AdvancedHMI allows the creation of HMIs that are not achievable with other off-the-shelf packages. It produces a true, fast executable for the Linux-based ComfilePi.
The display is a 24-bit colour LCD with a resistive touchscreen, and the controller itself offers 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 also provides stereo audio output as well as a piezo buzzer. WiFi is also achievable utilising an external USB dongle.
The device is housed in a flame-retardant ABS enclosure with IP65 water-resistant front panel and is specified for an operating temperature range of 0C to 70C.
