  Static mapping of USB-devices
Posted by: deme - May-11th-2019, 10:55 AM - Forum: Software - Replies (11)


we would like to map our usb devices to non-changing names in order to ensure that we always refer to the correct devices, even if one of the attached devices is unplugged or fails (imagine a device with 5-10 connected usb devices, accessing them through node-red).

On a stand-alone system without any constraints, we would use UDEV.

Do you have any suggestion how can we achieve this on the netPI?



  [INFO] Mechnical tests
Posted by: Armin@netPI - May-6th-2019, 04:35 PM - Forum: Hardware - No Replies

We got the question which mechanical tests netPI was subject to

netPI passed the tests

  • EN 60068-2-6 vibration (sinusodial)
  • EN 60068-2-7 shock

  System software V1.1.6.0 - Good bye web GUI timeouts
Posted by: Armin@netPI - May-6th-2019, 09:49 AM - Forum: News - No Replies

A new version of netPI's system software is out!

The new version V1.1.6.0 brings you an extended timeout value for all kinds of TCP/IP communications from and to netPI's web GUI.

Reports such as timeout during pulling an image, deploying a container or using portainer.io's embedded console are history now.

You find the new system software ready for your download in the download section here: https://www.netiot.com/netpi/industrial-raspberry-pi-3/


  [SOLVED] WebConfig netpi-nodered-fieldbus
Posted by: JohnyD94 - May-4th-2019, 06:38 PM - Forum: Software - Replies (13)


I’ve installed «netpi-nodered-fieldbus» on my docker, but I have two problems now:
1.)   There are no “fieldbus” nodes in my nodeRED editor.
2.)   I can’t access the webconfig page for fieldbus on Port 9000. I always get the Error “cannot GET /”.

According to the container log, the WebConfigurator has been started.

Over the last few hours I tried several things, but nothing changed.

Thank you in advance and kind regards

  MTBF values for netPI RTE 3 and netPI CORE 3 available
Posted by: Armin@netPI - April-30th-2019, 08:24 AM - Forum: Hardware - No Replies

Today I am happy to tell you that our devices netPI RTE 3 and CORE 3 were undergoing an MTBF (Mean time between failures) reliability calculation.

The values can be received on demand. Please send me a private message in this forum to request them.


Thumbs Up [SOLVED] Can netPI RTE3 support bluetooth?
Posted by: firefly - April-30th-2019, 07:44 AM - Forum: Hardware - Replies (6)

I find the below info from github.
Sources of Dockerfile generated Docker image "Debian with SSH, dbus and latest bluez bluetooth stack" for Hilscher’s netPI.
Base of this image builds debian with enabled SSH, a source code compiled bluez stack bluez and firmware for the onboard BCM bluetooth chip BCM43438.
We have the below problem.
1.Can NetPI RTE3 support bluetooth? 
2.Can use the above bluetooth sorce code?


  Is there a demand for a RS422 interface?
Posted by: Armin@netPI - April-29th-2019, 10:58 AM - Forum: Hardware - No Replies

This time I want to raise a question to the community related to a new developement I have in mind, but I am little indecisive.

Is there a demand on the market for an RS422 interface for netPI?

And if yes how much is the potential/year you personally see for a business you have in mind?


Posted by: clogomes - April-15th-2019, 10:46 AM - Forum: Hardware - Replies (1)

I would like to understand better the specifications of the NPIX-4DI4DO module.
Is there a technical specification or datasheet of the module?

These output ports are dry contacts, i.e., voltage / potential free ?

Thank you

  niot-e-npi3-51-en (RS485 <-> Industrial Ethernet)
Posted by: merklethomas - April-12th-2019, 03:52 PM - Forum: Software - Replies (6)

1. Wir wollen den niot-e-npi3-51-en als RS485 <-> EtherCAT/ProfiNET/Ethernet-IP Konverter/Gateway nutzen.
Wir verwenden momentan HMS Anybus Gateways um RS485 Daten zu konvertieren. Master ist ein Roboter
oder eine übergeordnete SPS.
Wie kann ich z.B. PDOs auf dem Gerät anlegen, z.B. 16 Byte Eingang und 20 Bytes Ausgangsseitig?

2. Später soll ein OPC UA Server auf dem Gerät installiert werden (-> Docker?), der die RS485 Daten über Ethernet 
einem äußeren OPC UA Client lesend zur Verfügung stellt.  

3. Das Gerät hat nur einen RS-Port, entweder 232 ODER 485. Wie kann ich beide (RS232 und RS485) implementieren?

How can I, for example, Create PDOs on the device, e.g. 16 bytes input and 20 bytes output?

an external OPC UA client reading provides.
