Farnell has signed a new distribution agreement with Kunbus to further enhance its portfolio of solutions for industrial automation and control applications.

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. 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.

The portfolio of products from Kunbus that are now available from Farnell, include: RevPi Connect+, an IIoT gateway; RevPi Core 3+: , an industrial computer; digital and analog I/O modules, and the modular gateway solution series, which converts all data that a target network can transfer.

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.”

Farnell is a global distributor and provides customers with access to products for professional use with a broad range of core SBC platforms and toolkits from brands including Raspberry Pi, Intel (NUC range), and Industrial Shields.
