RexCore Plus for Raspberry Pi
Frequently asked questions
Any of these questions on your mind?
What is included in the licence?
The licence allows you to run your algorithms on a single Raspberry Pi. As soon as the licence is bound to your Raspberry Pi, it cannot be used for another device. The development tools are free to use on any computer.
How is the licence delivered?
The licence is delivered via e-mail as an electronic token, which you combine with the identifiers of your Raspberry Pi to form a valid licence key. The procedure is described in detail in the Getting started guide.
Is it possible to upgrade the licence later?
Absolutely! You can buy the optional communication drivers whenever you need them. If you wish to upgrade your RexCore Plus to Professional version, just contact us.
What if my Raspberry Pi get broken?
In 99% of the cases, problems are solved by reflashing the SD card with operating system. In such a case, your licence is still valid. Even if you need to replace the faulty SD card, you can reactivate your licence and continue using it. In other cases you contact us and we'll do our best to find a win-win resolution.
Optional add-ons for your licence
Enjoy the modularity of the REXYGEN system and select only the modules you really need.
Modbus communication driver
Connect your Raspberry Pi to energy meters, frequency inverters, remote I/O units, other PLCs or SCADA systems using the Modbus protocol. Your Raspberry Pi can act as Modbus master or Modbus slave. Both TCP and RTU (serial communication) variants are supported.
Driver for communication with Siemens PLCs
Integrate Siemens PLCs in your project. Monitor inputs, control outputs, exchange data. Ethernet connection is supported (S7 models and LOGO! 7 and 8 series).
Driver for database access
Connect your Raspberry Pi to database systems (e.g. MySQL, MariaDB, PostgreSQL, Microsoft SQL). You can archive measured data, read user-defined parameters, read predefined sequences or recipes for individual machines, store data for reports in ERP and BMS systems, etc.
On-site automatic tuning of controllers
If you ever struggled with PI or PID controller settings, you probably understand the benefits of automatic tuning of controller parameters.
