The Prime

Industrial

Introduction


The Prime Industrial is ideal to develop a new industrial application and its waterproofness makes it indispensable for outdoor applications. The high-end connectors on the Prime Industrial are reliable, robust and waterproof and all expansion modules (auxiliaries) are water proof (IP67) and made of aluminum.

The Prime Industrial is -as the name suggests- perfect for industrial machines and the brain of any industrial application in robotics. You can easily interface existing projects with a connector onto the Prime Industrial, as it’s compatible with existing hardware. This makes the Prime Industrial an easy-fix for current projects, yet it is the ideal basis for future projects as well.

Highest computer power
for real-time systems


The Prime enables the highest computing power for real-time systems available. The Prime uses the i.MX RT1061 Crossover MCU with Arm® Cortex®-M7 Core; a high-performance, low-power crossover processor. It runs at 600 MHz with 1MB SRAM, 4 MB flash, and runs on Avular ArtOs. This enables you to get FPGA-like performances with the Prime.

Expand your Industrial Prime:
with M8 connectors
and click-on auxiliaries


The Prime can be easily connected to onboard devices, as almost popular I/O interfaces are supported. The Prime can be equipped with more onboard sensors, power sources and electronic interfaces, by expanding your stack. Simply click on extra modules that suit your application best. These modules communicate through our in-house developed Echo internal bus communication system. We are currently developing these auxiliaries and will launch them soon.

The Prime Industrial is equipped with M8 connectors.

Industrial
Connectivity


Programming, monitoring and optimizing parameters is done live through Cerebra Studio; Avular’s own PC interface for the Essentials products. Cerebra Studio is suitable for OEM production environments where product assembly and periodic maintenance are performed, but also for prototype development phases. Using Cerebra Studio does not require a MATLAB license.

Fully modular


To make the Prime Industrial fully modular, we have added the functionality to click expansion modules (auxiliaries) onto the Prime as a base module. The auxiliaries that are currently being developed to expand your Prime Industrial stack, will be made from the same material as the Prime Industrial: aluminum. Different types of Primes and their auxiliaries cannot be mixed and merged together, except for the Industrial and Rugged auxiliaries, as they are made from the same material. A maximum of 128 auxiliaries can be coupled.

Low-code programming with Cerebra Studio


With Avular’s intuitive software program Cerebra Studio, you can program your Prime and monitor its signals and change its control in real time in a user-friendly interactive design.

Cerebra Studio is free software, which can be easily downloaded and installed as a desktop application. The GUI enables (control) engineers to code in an easier way. With the press of a button, your model can be flashed on the robot, eliminating at least one engineer. Cerebra Studio offers a basic free license, and a paid Pro license with more functionalities and features.

Cerebra Studio can automatically translate your MATLAB model to binary code ran on the micro controller. The speed and ease with which the code is translated to the robot saves resources and improves project’s time efficiency. Cerebra Studio also allows you to integrate existing code, either through directly interacting with our firmware or integrating your code in a MATLAB model.


Three types of the Prime

There is a Prime for every use-case and price point. We have developed three different types of Primes, to cater to all needs. These three differ in robustness, IO and weight. What they all have in common is ease-of-use, powerful computation power and their compact, lightweight design.

Exploration

De Exploration Prime is perfect for cost-saving prototyping. It has an interchangeable bridge for its connectors, so you can choose what type of connectors are most suitable for your application.

Educational opportunities

Although Avular mainly focusses on mobile robotics, the Prime Industrial can also be used in other use cases such as the development of prototypes for mechatronic systems such as robotic arms. The Prime Industrial can be used to program any type of actuator and for sensor reading. – it can be used to program any type of actuator and sensor reading.

The Prime Industrial is also a very useful tool for educational purposes for new employees. New team members can get familiar with MATLAB Simulink and embedded programming using the Prime.
