Weidmuller’s u-OS operating system designed for IIoT and automation applications.
Weidmuller USA launched its u-OS, an open operating system engineered for Industrial IoT and automation applications. In addition to supporting Weidmuller’s u-remote and u-control lines, the OS embraces open standards including Linux, OPC-UA and Docker, the company says. Using containerization, users can combine proprietary, third-party and custom-built applications with increased stability and security. The OS also integrates open-source tools such as CODESYS, the manufacturer-independent IEC 61131-3 automation software for engineering control systems, and Node-RED, the low-code programming tool for wiring together hardware devices, APIs and online services.
