Brainboxes launch the BB-400 NeuronEdge Controller across three shows

Brainboxes launch a smarter way to know what’s happening on your production line. The BB-400 NeuronEdge Controller combines industrial hardware connections with the processing power of a Raspberry Pi Compute Module and the possibilities of opensource software to offer a simple retrofit way to unlock the potential of your equipment.

November sees three fantastic shows taking place across Europe in the same week. Brainboxes have teamed up with RS Components for the Smart factory Show, Liverpool, TME for Matelec, Madrid, and Meilhaus for Electronica, Munich. Each exhibition has an interactive demonstration that shows how easy it can be to start producing meaningful insight with the BB-400 NeuronEdge controller.

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 robust enough for the demands of industry.

The edge is where the factory meets the network and communicates, this is a place where smart technologies can show their worth. Machines constantly generate signals, but this raw data has little meaning. It is usually when signals change that they become interesting to us. Controllers with edge processing-power filter the noise down to data that is worth sending out to the network or cloud – moving us from machine to insight.

Having an edge controller that gives you the flexibility of PC systems with open source API programming options makes integration and customisation user friendly.

With modern software, interpreting the outputs of common production hardware like lights and sensors becomes simple. 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 NodeRED, circumventing many of the interoperability issues that have traditionally hampered integrated automation.

Brainboxes are providing a solution that enables you to achieve a significant step on your Industry 4 journey out of the box.  

See the BB-400 at Smart Factory Expo Liverpool with RS Components stand B41, 14th-15th November, at Matelec with TME, stand 3B02A, 13th-16th November, and Electronica with Meilhaus, Hall A3 stand 107, 13th-16th November.
