Compact Industrial PC based on Raspberry Pi CM4 supports PoE

May 21, 2023 — by Giorgio Mendoza 1,608 views

This month, EDATEC launched an industrial embedded computer built around the Raspberry Pi Compute Module 4. The CM4 Industrial comes with two RJ45 ports, a 4G/LTE module, certified 2.4/5.8G dual-band Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and support for external antennas.

This is another computer system designed for industrial applications based on the Raspberry Pi Computer Module 4. The CM4 Industrial appears to offer more peripherals than the ED-IPC2010 (also by EDATEC) and similar features as the IGN800 (OnLogic).


  • Broadcom BCM2711 — Quad-core 64-bit Arm Cortex-A72 (up to 1.5GHz)

The device can be configured with 2GB/4GB/8GB RAM and 8GB/16GB/32GB of eMMC storage. The CM4 Industrial is also available without eMMC storage at customers request.

The datasheet specifies that there are two isolated digital inputs (A4) and one double-pole-throw relay on board (A5).

As shown below, the board provides a 40-pin GPIO compatible with standard Raspberry Pi HATs and other external accessories.
