  • Brainboxes release the BB-400 NeuronEdge Controller

    Brainboxes have released a smarter way to know what’s happening on your production line. The BB-400 can sense, sort and send your machine data to minimise downtime, speed up response time and maximise profits.

    Combining industrial hardware connections with the processing power of a Raspberry Pi Compute Module 3+, the BB-400 NeuronEdge gives you the possibilities of open-source software in a simple retrofit way, unlocking the potential of your equipment.

    The BB-400 NeuronEdge combines Brainboxes proven IO and serial connectivity with a range of network connections to allow data to flow to the application of your choice. The innovative design uses a Raspberry Pi Compute module and an Arduino to provide edge processing. The Pi is supported by a power management system, making it match the robust demands of industry. This allows you to develop on Raspberry Pi and deploy seamlessly to the factory floor.

    The device offers the flexibility of PC systems with open source API programming options to make integration and customisation user friendly. Combining insights from machinery of all types and ages can be done through a preferred programming language, such as C# and Python or visually in Node-RED, circumventing many of the interoperability issues that have traditionally hampered integrated automation.

    At a glance:

    • 8 Digital IO lines
    • Works with standard 0-30V sensors
    • 1 Ethernet port for LAN network
    • 1 Ethernet port for wider network
    • Extendable Wi-Fi antenna
    • Bluetooth connectivity for wireless sensors
    • UPS power management prevents corruption
    • Dual redundant 5-30 VDC power supply

    Edge processing with Raspberry Pi:

    • Raspberry Pi Compute 3+ module and Arduino processing power
    • Edge processing sends machine data to your software or the cloud
    • Highly compatible with open-source software
    • Customise with APIs and Docker containers, REST, WebSockets or .NET APIs
    • Use the included software or program in your favourite language

    Brainboxes are providing a solution that enables you to achieve a significant step on your Industry 4 journey out of the box.  See for yourself how easy it can be to start producing meaningful insight with the BB-400 NeuronEdge controller.
