Customization

Do you need a specific hardware solution but don't want to waste money on time-consuming development? Customize the device to your needs – from inputs and outputs through communication protocols to wireless and other technologies.

Efficient development thanks to the modularity

For custom development, we start with our standard models, which we modify based on your requirements.

This modular approach brings important advantages for you:

  • reduced entry costs
  • faster development and delivery
  • development starts from 100-piece production batches

Choosing a model to modify

We develop custom hardware based on the Patron, Neuron, Gate, and Extension product lines, depending on where your project is headed.

Patron


  • Suitable for analog and digital inputs/outputs, relay outputs
  • Computing module: Unipi Zulu
  • Available in 3 sizes: S, M, L

Neuron


  • Suitable for analog and digital inputs/outputs, relay outputs
  • Computing module: Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+, Raspberry Pi 4 Model B
  • Available in 3 sizes: S, M, L

Gate


  • Suitable as a simple communication gateway
  • Computing module: Rock Pi
  • Available in G100 and G110 variants

Extension


  • Suitable for expansion with additional inputs/outputs without the need to purchase a controller
  • Computing module: not included
  • Available for xS series of Extension product line

Inputs / outputs, communication protocols, and technologies

As part of the hardware customization, we can change the number and type of inputs / outputs. You can also choose from a wide range of communication protocols and technologies, including wireless options.


  • Inputs / Outputs: digital, analog, relay outputs
  • Communication protocols and technologies: RS485, RS422, RS232, 1-Wire, Ethernet, LTE, DALI, IQRF, M-Bus, wM-Bus, EnOcean, ZigBee, Z-Wave, OpenTherm, GPRS / GSM, NB-IoT, WiFi, LoRa, PoE, CAN, KNX, BACnet, Profinet, Profibus, EtherCAT, Sigfox, 433 / 868 MHz, Thread, Bluetooth (low energy), support for external modems, communication converters
  • Other: adjustment of the products operating temperature range, secure boot


Product branding

In addition to the necessary chassis modifications (e.g. antenna cut-out), we can customize the product according to your brand identity, including packaging and documentation. More information on product branding can be found here.



Certification

All our products comply with the relevant directives and regulations: EMC, LVD, RED, RoHS, REACH.


Step by step hardware development

After submitting the request form, we will contact you to agree on the scope of the modifications (inputs and outputs / technologies / graphic modifications). Our developers will discuss the most efficient development solution with you. Once the price offer is approved, prototyping and serial production will follow up. Upon completion, we will ship the finished products directly to you or store them in our warehouse and ship them as needed (can also be shipped directly to your customers).
