The central engine of the product line UniPi Neuron is a Linux based single board computer, the product line UniPi Axon is based on Industrial Allwinner H5-powered Computer with Linus OS. Both are acting as an application host. They can appear -through third party (OEM) soft and hardware developments, as intelligent data gateway (e.g. IOT), as human-machine-interface (hmi), as programmable logic controller (plc) or as any other tailored application (open source or commercial).
Together with its multiple physical interfaces from digital I/O to wireless connection and the possibility to implement old and new communication methods and protocols, this highly flexible product can be used for many cases in fabrication-, process- and building automation as well as in process data acquisition and smart home projects
Associated Software CODESYS
CODESYS is a software platform especially designed for use in modern industrial automation projects. Its development system is made in accordance with IEC 61131-3 standard for PLC software programming. CODESYS is compatible with UniPi Neuron and their extensions
Associated Software Mervis
Mervis is a software platform for control of UniPi programmable controllers. Mervis is a set of tools and applications for advanced regulation and automation. Mervis is developed and allows programming methods in accordance with IEC 61131-3. It is compatible with UniPi v1.1, UniPi Neuron and UniPi Axon control units and their extensions.
The combination of Mervis or CODESYS with the UniPi PLC hardware is a powerful and cost efficient method to be used for many cases in fabrication-, process- and building automation as well as in process data acquisition and smart home projects. The scalability, the variety of physical connections and communication methods and protocols gives the user a flexible tool to solve his special approach.
