Quick Start Guide

A warm welcome to the RevPi community! As you’re now here, you’ve obviously just received your RevPi Core Module.

  • Let’s get started, tear open the box (if you haven’t done so already)!

You should find the following in the package:

• 1 x RevPi Core
• 1 x plug for the power supply
• 2 x covers to protect unused interconnect ports

 

WHAT ARE INTERCONNECT PORTS??????
Exactly! It’s something there’s no way you can know but here you will find out what interconnect ports are and which connections you have available on your RevPi Core.

  • Connect the devices that you need for your project (e.g. monitor, RevPi DIO…). Should you like to use your RevPi Core without a separate monitor/keyboard, the instructions can be found here.
  • Mount your RevPi module if necessary on a DIN rail.
  • Connect up to the power supply. To do so you need a 24V mains adapter and suitable cable (size 0.35-2.5 mm²). Take care that your RevPi modules are correctly connected. The pin assignment can be found here.

Great, your hardware has now been correctly installed. Now let’s activate everything.

When working with your RevPi Core you use a Linux operating system. If you haven’t had much to do with Linux up until now, you can find a short introduction on the subject here.

PLEASE NOTE
The keyboard layout is german (qwertz) by default. If you are using an english keyboard (qwerty), the “y” and “z” keys are swapped. Keep that in mind when entering a password containing those letters. You can update your keyboard configuration by changing the configuration file. You can open this file by using “sudo raspi-config” command.

The following software is currently available for you to realise your project:
• With Phyton you can write your own programmes.
• With PiCtory you can create a configuration file for your RevPi modules.
• With logiCAD3 you can create handlers.
