The DINGO IoT BACKBONE is a kind of "IoT server". Comprising four interconnected electronics boards, that together can be housed in standard industrial DIN-Rail boxes from different vendors, for example OKW.
Each layer has a family of boards from which to make your selection. Making it easy to create a custom BACKBONE for different applications or needs.
At the top sits the User Interface Board (DUIB) that is visible at the DIN-Rail box front.
Under the DUIB sits the computer board (DCB), the brain of the BACKBONE. The DCB holds 1 to 5 interface ports to the outside world (details below).
At the bottom sits the Base Board (DBB) for connecting to external sensors and actuators. plus connections for holding 2, 3 or 4 plug-ins making up the fourth layer.
The plug-ins add I/O or communication specific features to the BACKBONE.
The middle board holds the credit card sized Computer Board (DCB). The DCB has 4 connectors to the outer world:
There are four variants of DCB boards available. All variants are pin compatible with the Base Board (DBB) and User Interface Board (DUIB):
In addition to those four there is a test board intended for testing and developing for base- and user-interface boards from a normal PC computer. It actually puts your PC between the DUIB and the DBB.
The Base Board (DBB) provides the I/Os to low-voltage sensors/actuators on one side and high voltage connectors at the other side for power, relays and PINGO plug-in when installed.
In addition the DBB contains 2, 3 or 4 sockets for special purpose plug-ins, discussed below.
The DBB holds a 40 pin plus a 20 pin connectors to the DCB above it. Those connect miscellaneous connectors to the DCB, including GPIOs, I2C, SPI, CAN, serial ports, USB, etc.
The DBB is open-source. Everybody can create their own or have us to help them with that.
