Raspberry Pi CM4 EdgeBox RPI4 from OpenEmbed

Raspberry Pi CM4 EdgeBox RPI4 from OpenEmbed The company OpenEmbed recently released the EdgeBox-RPi4 industrial controller. The OpenEmbed EdgeBox-RPi4 is an industrial controller based on Raspberry Pi Compute Module 4 / CM4 with an 4GB/32GB/wireless option and a 1GB/8GB option.

Both options have RS485, RS232 interfaces,isolated digital inputs and outputs through a 16-pin terminal block, m.2 slot, Mini PCIe slot, Gigabit Ethernet,2 x USB 2.0 and HDMI 2.0 up to 4Kp60. WiFI, Bluetooth and 4G LTE connectivity are optional.


The SoM used is a Raspberry Pi Compute Module 4 (CM4) with an Broadcom BCM2711 quad-core Cortex-A72 processor running up to 1.5GHz both the 4GB/32GB/wireless option and a 1GB/8GB option so it has full Raspberry Pi community support ;)so it has full Raspberry Pi community support ;) .


It comes in a full aluminum heatsink enclosure and supports 35mm DIN Rail mounting.

I really like the EdgeBox RPI4 has an m.2 slot, an Mini PCIe slot and the fact it came with Raspberry Pi OS pre installed.


OpenEmbed EdgeBox-RPi4 is designed for industrial applications and would be ideal for an IoT gateway, 4G/LTE router, programmable logic status monitoring, facility management, in-vehicle applications, controllers (PLC) in industrial automation and control systems.
