Roll-Out: RevPi Nodes on every Revolution Pi

2020-12-08T14:03:49+01:00By |

The Revolution Pi from Kunbus was launched in 2016 as the first truly industrial Raspberry Pi with IP20 protection level. From now on, every new Revolution Pi will be delivered directly with preinstalled RevPi nodes. It is a fully-fledged industrial PC and performs control and communication tasks in the industrial IoT sector: The Revolution Pi is an open source IPC that can be used with I/O modules and fieldbus gateways to connect to an industrial network. The modular and comparatively inexpensive industrial PC is housed in a slim DIN rail housing. Currently the basic modules Revolution Pi Connect/Connect+ are [...]

Node-RED and RevPi Nodes: For small solutions and rapid prototyping

2020-12-07T16:57:03+01:00By |

The development tool Node-RED originally comes from the home automation and smart home segment and helps to connect devices and services in a simple and easy to understand way. However, in certain cases it is also used in practical applications for the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). A small disgression. In order for services and devices to be coordinated, their states recorded and remotely controlled, we have to integrate and connect them with each other. In a sense, they must "talk" to each other, exchange information, so that they can also receive and execute commands remotely. In smart homes, for [...]

IoT is magic: How we get girls excited about IT

2020-12-08T13:41:31+01:00By |

From an outside point of view, the developer's job looks pretty boring. Kathleen, our trainee, seems to do nothing else but concentrate on looking at a screen and typing something into a keyboard. What the casual observer doesn't know: Kathleen is currently developing superpowers to give a lifeless piece of hardware special abilities. And that fascinates her. Kathleen is 17 years old. For two weeks, the high school student traveled 1.5 hours each morning by public transport to Oldenburg to do her internship with us. After graduating from high school, she would like to study computer science. She thus belongs [...]

erminas review 2019

2020-12-23T12:39:50+01:00By |

The erminas team looks back on a good, sporty, eventful year. We review it for you and give you a little insight into our work behind the scenes. Two research trips Digital transformation also means discovering and developing new opportunities in new places. In 2019, we have therefore set out on our journey. With the SuMoCoS project (Sustainability and Mobility in the Context of Smart Cities) of Oldenburg's Carl von Ossietzky University, we visited Ulaanbataar in Mongolia and, as tech enablers, provided information about sustainable opportunities for digitization. We also visited Tashkent in [...]

Smart Cities Mongolia: Digital Transformation between Tradition and Modernity

2020-12-07T15:43:55+01:00By |

When you think of Mongolia, yurts and people with birds of prey riding horses through the steppe come more often to mind than smart technologies. But in Ulaanbaatar, the Mongolian capital, digitalization has long since arrived in people's lives. As part of the Sustainability and Mobility in the Context of Smart Cities (SuMoCoS) project supported by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research, we visited Mongolia and talked about opportunities, possibilities and technologies. Mongolia is four times the size of Germany but there are only about 3.1 million inhabitants. Northeast of the city, the mountains of the Gorchi-Tereldsch National [...]

Five possible applications for the Soft PLC Revolution Pi

2020-12-07T15:24:16+01:00By |

The Revolution Pi from Kunbus is a small industrial controller for DIN rails. With a whole range of IO and bus modules, the Revolution Pi - or RevPi for short - can communicate with all common analog and digital sensors, actuators and bus systems as well as with TCP-IP-based networks. The RevPi contains a Linux computer, which makes it an amazingly versatile problem solver. In contrast to the classic programmable logic controller (PLC), the Soft-PLC does not have a single software package for programming. The Revolution Pi can be programmed in basically any language: High level languages like C, [...]

Digitalization for the paper processing industry

2020-12-08T14:18:29+01:00By |

When the world goes digital, paper is against the wall - that's the first thought when it comes to digitalization. But even if the digital transformation of analog processes can create efficient solutions, it can never completely replace paper: In the paper processing industry, for example the packaging industry. In Germany alone, almost 12 million shipments were transported per delivery day last year - all packed in cardboard and paper. The resource paper is therefore a valuable resource. And the paper-processing industry has a great interest in making the best possible use of it, wasting as little as possible and [...]

Five steps to digital transformation – for decision makers!

2020-10-28T11:07:34+01:00By |

Many medium-sized and larger companies are hesitant to take the first steps towards digital transformation. Particularly in the case of established and well-running traditional companies, development can come to a stagnation: "Everything is going so well at the moment! Why should we change production now? Why do we have to start digitalization now?" Precisely when everything is going well is the best time to maintain the existing advantage over competitors in the market. The following five steps show you how to start. 1. In the beginning there is curiosity Everything is going well in your company: [...]
