Andino Systems

industrial PCs for installation in the control cabinet, based on the Raspberry Pi

Andino Systems provides innovative solutions for the usage of Raspberry Pi PCs in industrial environments. Our boards - called X1, IO and X2 include a robust housing protecting the Pi's sensitive inputs and outputs, as well as, depending on the product and configuration, a real time clock, different BUS technologies, relays and even 2G/4G or LoRaWAN modems. The versatility of the Raspberry Pi also enables data processing specific to the usecase.

Andino X1

Industrial Raspberry Pi Andino X1

Andino X1 shop page

The Andino X1 is a microcontroller board for the Raspberry Pi in a DIN-rail housing for installation in a control cabinet. It is used to adapt digital inputs and outputs for a voltage of 24 V. The board has its own microcontroller for precise signal preprocessing and adaptation of signal generators and actuators. It also contains a Raspberry Pi 3B+ or Raspberry Pi 4, depending on the configuration. The inputs and outputs as well as the power supply of the Pi are optimally protected, thus allowing use in an industrial environment. Communication between the microcontroller and the Pi takes place via the UART interface. The device also includes an Arduino compatible controller that continuously communicates with the Raspberry Pi and enables real-time polling of all inputs using our custom firmware.

The following versions are available:

Andino IO

Andino IO shop page

The Andino IO, is a microcontroller board based on the Raspberry Pi 3B+/4 - depending on the configuration. Like the name suggests, it includes a larger variety of IO options when options compared to other boards - including a CAN-Bus, RS232, RS485 and a larger number of digital inputs and relays. The GPIO Pins of the Raspberry Pi are routed to the outside of the case and protected due to the usage of industrial-grade connectors. The DIN-Rail mountable case, as well as the wide variety of custom-mase software, python libraries and node-red nodes, enable easy deployment and usage. Real-time polling of the inputs is possible using a dedicated controller.

The following versions are available:

Andino UPS

Andino UPS shop page

Andino UPS is an Uninterruptible Power Supply for 24 Volt DC Client Devices. It stores the Energy in long lasting Supercaps instead of Lead- or Lithium batteries. Because of this, depending on the environment temperature, the lifetime can reach up to 10 years without any maintenance. The UPS is DIN-rail mountable and suited for usage in industrial environments. If a power-outage is detected, it can automatically send a shutdown message to the connected device, thus preventing possible data corruption.

Andino Terminal

Raspberry Pi Based  Andino Terminal

Andino Terminal shop page

The Andino Terminal is a versatile terminal powered by the Raspberry Pi 3B+ or 4. Its based on the Andino IO and includes a keyboard, programmable function keys, touch-screen display, RFID capabilities and a large variety of connectivity options. This allows for operation of the terminal completely independent of other devices as for access control purposes, controlling production environment machines, reading sensors and much more.

Andino X2

Industrial DIN-Rail mountable PC

Andino X2 shop page

The Andino X2, is a microcrontroller board for the Raspberry Pi in a DIN-rail housing for installation in a control cabinet. On top of all the benefits of the X1, it also has more digital inputs and outputs than competing boards. Besides the network connectivity of the Raspberry Pi, it also contains an extra Ethernet port and status LEDs for easy information readout.
