Industrial computer powered by Raspberry Pi OnLogic available

Orange Industrial PCs has announced the availability of its new Raspberry Pi Factor 201 powered device for pre-order. Additionally, they revealed more information about the Factor 202, the next model in the Factor 200 series.

The Raspberry Pi Compute Module 4, which was created exclusively for industrial goods, powers both devices. and industrial enclosure has enabled OnLogic to provide flexible and reliable solutions to our customers, and we see Raspberry Pi hardware gaining widespread adoption in the industry with products like this,” said Gordon Hollingworth, product manager at Raspberry Pi Ltd.

“OnLogic has been designing computers for industrial applications for nearly two decades, so the CM4 was a natural fit for us to develop a new device,” said Maxx Garrison, product manager at OnLogic. “When Raspberry Pi unveiled the CM4, they mentioned that more than half of Raspberry Pi computers sold were used for industrial and commercial applications. The Raspberry Pi community already has enormous experience in building Industry 4.0, SCADA, and IoT using Raspberry Pi. Our goal with the Factor 200 series is to provide them with new tools to continue innovating no matter where they may need to install these systems.

Available for pre-order starting today, the Factor 201 is a compact, passively cooled computing device intended for use as an industrial gateway, automation controller, or edge computer. In addition to the Raspberry Pi CM4, the system has an operating temperature range of -20 to 60°C, DIN rail or wall mounting options, and a 12-24V power input. The device can also be powered over an Ethernet cord using PoE Power Delivery (PoE-PD), allowing a single cable installation to provide both network access and power to the device.

The upcoming Factor 202 is developed specifically with industrial control in mind. In addition to all the features of the Factor 201, the Factor 202 adds digital and analog inputs and outputs. A 2.7-inch capacitive touchscreen will provide status updates and system control. OnLogic expects the Factor 202 to be available later this year.
