BitScope Blade DUO

BitScope Blade – The industrial solution for Raspberry Pi

BitScope Blade Duo.jpg

BitScope Blade Duo is a desktop, rack or wall mountable power and mounting solution for a pair of Raspberry Pi computers. It solves the power problem when using Raspberry Pi in industrial and other mission critical applications.

It has a built-in 5V switch mode power supply capable of powering two Raspberry Pi and up to eight USB devices which are connected via the Raspberry Pi (subject to a the total blade power budget).

It can be used with simple plug packs, 12V batteries, low cost uninterruptible power supplies (UPS) and even passive power over ethernet (PoE) solutions. Blade Duo can even be used to power and mount the Raspberry Pi 7" Touchscreen Display, two Raspberry Pi, and up to eight BitScopes!

Full access to Raspberry Pi I/O including I2C, SPI, UART, PWM and GPIO is provided via the Blade HUB CAP expansion socket underneath each Raspberry Pi. Connect personality cards (e.g. a real-time clock, operation status displays, or almost any other physical I/O that conform to these standards).

Ideal for building reliable stand-alone desktop & server systems with Raspberry Pi.
