Product Overview

The BB02B from Bitscope is a BitScope Blade Duo. This Duo is a desktop, rack or wall mountable power and mounting solution for a pair of Raspberry Pi computers. It solves the power problem when using Raspberry Pi in industrial and other mission critical applications. It has a built-in 5V switch mode power supply capable of powering two Raspberry Pi and up to eight USB devices which are connected via the Raspberry Pi. It can be used with simple plug packs, 12V batteries, low cost uninterruptible power supplies and even passive power over Ethernet solutions. Blade Duo can even be used to power and mount the Raspberry Pi 7" touchscreen display, two Raspberry Pi and up to eight BitScopes.
