Industrial Ethernet now on Raspberry Pi2

Industrial Ethernet now on Raspberry Pi2

POWERLINK is the first industrial Ethernet protocol to work on the new Raspberry Pi2. Kalycito has implemented openPOWERLINK master and slave with Linux on the 2nd generation of the single-board computer. Raspberry Pi2 was introduced in the spring of 2015 and offers a new dimension of performance on this well-known platform.

Kalycito has come up with a demo that showcases how POWERLINK on Raspberry Pi2 can be an interesting platform for networked industrial and home automation projects to be applied using devices like PLCs and distributed I/O. It should be noted that the demo was created using the unmodified official open source release package. The quick start guide and prebuilt demo binaries can be used to get started before proceeding to modify the C programs for transmitting and receiving data via the I/O pins.

This demo shows how easy it is for anyone to set up and run openPOWERLINK on the Raspberry Pi2 to build their own distributed automation platform and control the signals of motors, sensors, actuators, relays and more. More information regarding this demo can be found here on the EPSG website.
