THE DEVICE COMES WITH A 700 MHz PROZESSOR, 512 MB of RAM and 4 GB Nand flash memory, which makes it suitable for specific applications, like smartgrid remote controlling. It provides Ethernet, four digital inputs and four digital outputs as well as an economic 1-Wire bus, which is typically used for reading temperature and humidity sensors. The unit has a range of interface add-on options such as CAN, EIA-232, four configurable digital I/O’s, four analog inputs and more. Also it provides internal expansion cards to support wireless communication such as LTE, 3G, GPS module, WiFi, Bluetooth and Zigbee.

The unit comes in a 91 mm x 106 mm x 61 mm aluminum housing and has a operating temperature range of -25 °C to +80 °C. According to the company, Modberry 500 offers wide Raspberry Pi software and application support. For example it is compatible with software support of the Raspberry Pi Foundation.
Additionally Techbase developed iMod, which is an innovative software platform allowing for fast start-up and full exploitation of device capabilities without the need for writing programs.

iMod-Cloud is a Software as a Service (SasS) that controls iMod devices. Together they stand as a complete solution ecosystem – iMod-Cloud Ecosystem. In other words, it is a combination of a cloud service with a web user interface and special industrial devices that are manageable remotely. It allows the user to visualize and control parameters of any number of devices via a web browser. Now iMod-Cloud expands to support Modberry 500 devices, powered by Raspberry Pi. With it, the user can control all their facilities via any mobile device, register data and share selected information with other users.
