Raspberry Pi3 Embedded PC: emPC-A/RPI3
Despite many misgivings, the Raspberry Pi has shown that it is capable of meeting industrial demands. Even if it may not be suitable for the most critical automation tasks, there are numerous application fields in peripheral areas of the Automation sector, where Janz Tec AG‘s raspberry pi systems do an excellent job. Thus, Janz Tec presents the emPC-A/RPI3 with a Raspberry Pi 3 module.
The emPC-A/RPI3 system is based on the original design and is an enhanced version of the tried-and-tested emPC-A/RPI2. Instead of a Raspberry Pi 2 module, this embedded system uses the current module, Raspberry Pi 3. The system almost looks the same as the previous model, but the new CPU module means that, on the inside, it has quite a few interesting new features, especially for automation scenarios. The system not only delivers enhanced performance, it also has two interfaces for mobile communication, Bluetooth and Wi-fi, that can be used to create ad hoc networks for mobile machines. The operating system is still a Raspbian Jessie Light. Like the previous model, the new version also offers CODESYS and various CAN tools.

emVIEW-7/RPI3 - the new Raspberry Pi Panel PC
Janz Tec introduces the new Raspberry Pi 3 Panel PC emVIEW-7/RPI3. The small format and inexpensive Panel PC with metal housing is capable of meeting industrial demands.
Janz Tec has developed the 7-inch panel based on the Raspberry Pi 3 module. The device is made up of the electronics of the tried-and-tested embedded PC emPC-A/RPI which was combined together with a 7-inch display in a stable metal housing into one device. It offers adequate graphics performance and is optimally suited to small visualisations and control points. The PCAP touchscreen with a glass surface has a resolution of 800 x 480 pixels. All interfaces of the Raspberry system are fed out of the back of the device. It features an additional CAN and RS232/RS485 interface and a realtime clock. It can be mounted on a top-hat rail as well as using VESA mounting holes. A minimal Raspbian Linux is installed standard, which supports all interfaces of the emPC-A/RPI. If required, a CODESYS runtime environment can be pre-installed.
