Especially companies with many small sites do not operate a data center with IT personnel at every location. Nevertheless, data is to be collected from several systems, which can then be evaluated across locations on the company’s own servers or in a cloud solution. Here too, Revolution Pi offers the solution. As the central remote station, the data from all systems is entered here: Via OPC-UA, ModBus, Profibus, Profinet, CANbus. The data is securely cached, if necessary pre-processed or transformed and then forwarded via the Internet to the company’s own servers or the cloud solutions.
The Revolution Pi has the advantage that the Raspberry Pi (more precisely the Raspberry Compute Module) is the technical basis of the RevPi. Because there are countless free software libraries for data transformation for the Raspberry Pi, and every well-known cloud provider offers interfaces and tutorials for the Raspberry Pi that can be used directly with the RevPi.
