[INFO] 100% your software ... buy netPI without SD card
Some applications you like to run on a netPI need far more access rights to a Host Linux than netPI's preloaded OS and restricted Docker deamon allows you. Typical application examples are discussed in the threads https://forum.hilscher.com/thread-368.html or https://forum.hilscher.com/thread-379.html.

What we offer to OEM customers as alternative is a netPI version coming without SD card (which was sealed till january 2019) and software at all. You in turn add your SD card containing your own software to these units and run them as you like. 100% compatibility to a Raspberry Pi 3B guarantees compliance to all software offered by the Raspberry Organization at https://www.raspberrypi.org/downloads/.

The alternative parts can only be ordered through Hilscher sales. They are not available on Amazon.de or Hilscher web shop.

Option A (edit March 2020: Both following part numbers are obsolete. Buy a standard netPI instead, since SD card is no longer sealed since 2019 and can be replaced with own one. So a etPI is as good as the obsoltet EVA products)  

       Part number 1321.429, named NIOT-E-TNPIR3EVA - Evaluation version of single netPI RTE 3
       Part number 1321.439, named NIOT-E-TNPIC3EVA - Evaluation version of single netPI CORE 3

  • Each part includes a single piece of device that comes in the same card board box like a standard netPI
  • The device is preassembled and housing upper and lower part are screwed together as with standard netPI
  • The device does not included an SD card, the inner SD card slot is left empty. It needs an SD card you have to add  to run. You need to open the case.
  • There is no Hilscher software provided. Software responsibility lies with the customer.
  • The part is made for evaluation purposes only to give customers a chance to evaluate the hardware along with their own software
  • The part is slightly higher in price than a standard netPI, cause we create it on demand in single pieces making manufacturing more expensive

Option B

        Part number 1321.427, named NIOT-E-NPI3-51-EN-RE\NOSD - 40pcs. OEM package netPI RTE 3 without SD card
        Part number 1321.437, named NIOT-E-NPI3-EN\NOSD - 40pcs. OEM package netPI CORE 3 without SD card
  • Each part  is an OEM package of 40 pieces placed in a big card board box with separators in between
  • All devices are preassembled and the PCBA is embedded and screwed to the housing lower part
  • The housing upper parts come loose and just are slid over the lower parts. Housing upper and lower part are not screwed together
  • The devices do not include an SD card, their SD card slots are left empty. Own SD cards have to be added to run
  • All 160 screws - 4 needed for each unit - come in a big bag. They attach the housing upper part to the lower part when screwed
  • There is no Hilscher software provided. Software responsibility lies with the customer.
  • This package is significantly cheaper in relation to price/unit as those offered on amazon or web-shop

what about the certifications for OEM Package then CE, FCC, UL? does it remain same as netPI RTE/CORE?
A.) First of all the certificates are hardware related only and not software related. So it doesn't matter which software is running on the devices.

B.) The devices in the two packages referenced in this thread come without any label ... cause we don't know customers wishes. So customer is responsible for labeling after receiving the units himself.

C.) And yes the certifications remain valid, as long as the customer lists at least the original name of the devices on his customer label. Of course he can add other names or numbers too on the label for his reference.

D.) Today valid names are NIOT-E-NPI3-EN for netPI CORE 3 and NIOT-E-NPI3-51-EN-RE for netPI RTE 3

E.) With CE paperwork there is anyway no problem since this is a self-declaration and customer can do it by himself.

F.) FCC and UL accreditations are registered to the names refererenced under D.). If customer wants to have his own name for his product additional paperwork is needed. He needs our confirmation for the laboratories first that his unit is the same as the ones already registered and is just using a different software. Then he has to get in touch with FCC or UL laboratories and get his own device registered which results in costs.
