Hardened, Open Source, Embedded Linux Operating System for Real-Time Applications
ipLinux is a proprietary open source Linux distribution which is used on our devices. ipLinux is based on Buildroot, and especially designed to work with the hardware models IPC191X1 19" 1U, IPC191V5 19" 1U, MEC2 and SEC3. For optimal interoperability regarding the device's included software, ipLinux comes preconfigured and tested to the customer. The functional range of the operating system is identical on all devices.
The configuration of operating system components can be performed directly using the web-based configuration interface. Therefore, the configuration does not require any experience with Linux systems. The operating system-specific configuration settings are stored within the general configuration and do not have to be saved separately.
The effective patch management enables ipLinux to be maintained up-to-date. Additionally, ipLinux can be provided to our customers in form of source code.
ipLinux is a hardened operating system and suitable for use in industrial environments. To protect the system from unauthorized access, numerous cyber security functions are available, such as:
