The DinRPi has one RS232 and RS485 transceiver onboard, the routing to Raspberry Pi’s serial port can be configured in the software.
The DinRPi’s functions can be extended using your own expnasion board which can be connected to the onboard expansion header. You can use several GPIOs, powersupply, SPI, etc.
There are two different versions of the DinRPi available:
- The DinRPi 5W is equipped with a 5V/1A power supply. This cost effective version can be used for the Raspberry Pi 1 Model B+ and Raspberry Pi 2 Model B.
- The DinRPi 10W has a more powerful 5V/2A power supply. This version should be used for the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B and if you want to supply further external components and devices (e.g. UMTS sticks, etc.).
