Farnell has signed a new distribution agreement with Kunbus to further enhance its portfolio of solutions for industrial automation and control applications. Design engineers can save time and money when using the devices, gateways, and expansion modules in the Kunbus portfolio to implement Industry 4.0 into their business.
Kunbus specialises in industrial communication for automation, process, manufacturing and drive technology provided by its modular open-source Raspberry Pi-based hardware platform, Revolution Pi. This flexible and cost-effective industrial-grade device delivers the performance and simplicity of the Raspberry Pi to the industrial control market. Farnell customers now have a broader range of solutions when designing automation and Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) projects. The extra functionality offered by the digital and analogue expansion modules and gateways from Kunbus also facilitate retrofitting.
Romain Soreau, head of single board computing at Farnell, said: “We are delighted to add Kunbus to our portfolio. They are a significant addition to our ever growing offering of SBC solutions for industrial automation and control applications. Kunbus offers a platform that further extends the performance and simplicity of the Raspberry Pi to industrial environments with the added benefit of enabling our customers to retrofit to existing systems which is a challenge in most sectors.”
