The world’s largest software ecosystem

B&R's enhanced crossover for Operating System – exOS for short – makes it possible to incorporate open-source Linux software into industrial control systems. This enables the type of advanced automation solutions envisioned by Industry 4.0 and the Industrial IoT.

Overcoming the IT/OT language barrier

To create today's most advanced machine designs, OEMs rely on interdisciplinary teams comprising experts in both operational technology (OT) and information technology (IT). The problem is that today's control systems are unable to execute higher level programming languages. OT and IT experts work in different programming languages, making it difficult to find common ground for a joint solution. While OT experts are well-versed in machine design, PLC programming and commissioning, their IT colleagues are more at home using high-level programming languages like C++, Python or JavaScript and working with open-source software and Linux. By enabling control systems to understand high-level programming languages, exOS now offers machine builders an entirely new way to develop complex hybrid solutions for their machines.
