Edge controller

B&R: A single device to acquire data, evaluate it and send it to the cloud is possible with this new Edge Controller. This industrial PC can be used for Big Data analysis and machine learning, while at the same time serving as a full- edged industrial controller.


The controller is based on the Automation PC 910, and provides high-performance variant equipped with an Intel XEON processor able to handle resource-intensive tasks like machine learning. The controller runs a hardened operating system a commercial Linux variant with guaranteed long-term support. Cloud transmission occurs via MQTT.

B&R Hypervisor makes it possible to simultaneously run a real-time operating system on the controller that turns the edge device into an industrial controller with cycle times in the sub-millisecond range. An unlimited number of I/O modules or controllers can be connected via the POWERLINK Industrial Ethernet protocol, OPC UA or other fieldbus systems. In the future, this will also be possible using OPC UA TSN.
