BitScope Blade BB01 is a power and mounting solution for Raspberry Pi, a HAT and (optionally) the Display.
It's perfect for building industrial strength stand-alone physical computing solutions with Raspberry Pi.
BitScope Blade Uno Pi is a rack and wall mountable power solution for a Raspberry Pi and an associated HAT.
Uno Pi solves the power problem when using Raspberry Pi in industrial and related mission critical applications.
It has a built-in 5V switch mode power supply capable of powering the Raspberry Pi, the HAT and up to four high current devices connected via the Raspberry Pi.
Such devices can include almost any type of USB hard disk (HDD) or solid-state drive (SSD). Of course any USB powered BitScope (such as BitScope Micro) other peripherals such as keyboards, mice, WiFi and Bluetooth dongles can all be used.
Uno Pi accepts supply voltages ranging from 9V to 48V so it's compatible with 9V, 12V, 24V and 48V power sources. It can be used with simple plug packs, 12V batteries, low cost uninterruptible power supplies (UPS) and even passive power over ethernet (PoE) solutions.
Uno Pi can accommodate a standard mini-breadboard in the HAT slot for circuit prototyping. It can even be used to power and mount the Raspberry Pi 7" Touchscreen Display, one Raspberry Pi, a HAT and up to four BitScopes!
BitScope Blade Uno Pi is compatible with Duo Pi and can used in the same cluster pack configuration.
By mixing Uno Pi and Duo Pi it is possible to create Blade Packs and BitScope Servers that support HAT hardware. For example, include one Uno Pi blade with a Raspberry Pi and Sense HAT in a BitScope Blade Rack to monitor the rack temperature, humidity, vibrations. Mount a BitScope Micro powered and controlled from the same blade to monitor system current and voltage to build a complete self monitored server system.
Two packs can be mounted side-by-side in a 19" rack to build a Blade Rack 20 server just 5RU high.
See BitScope Blade Duo Pi for more information about Blade Packs and Racks.
