Position Connector
1 RJ45-interface
You can connect up a network here.
Tip!: Use a right angle plug if a minimal installation depth is important for you.
2 USB interfaces
Two USB A connectors are available. They enable you to connect USB 2.0 client devices (e.g. USB hard drives, surfsticks etc). Each port may only be loaded with up to max 500 mA. Should you need more than 2 USB A connectors, a suitable USB hub can be found in our shop.
3 Network interface
Turn on the power supply only after you have mounted your device onto the DIN rail. RevPi devices can be operated in a voltage range from 10.7 V – 28.8 V. To find out how to connect up your RevPi Core, please read the “Connecting the power supply”.
4 Micro-USB interface
A USB host system can be connected here (e.g. a PC to upload software onto your device).
Please note! Disconnect the Micro-USB plug after transferring the software to your RevPi Core. RevPi will not start up as long as the Micro-USB plug is still connected.
Caution! Micro plugs are mechanically sensitive – something you know from your mobile phone’s charging port. It’s why you should never use force and never twist the plug but always connect it using little effort. Never bend connected plugs to the side and only pull them out of the port without twisting.
5 Status LEDs
RevPi Core has 3 status LEDs. We have already fitted LED Power. It indicates whether your RevPi Core is functioning properly (green) or whether there is a problem (red).
The two other LEDs are freely programmable for your own projects.
