Do you want to read out and process plant data? Connect SCADA, multi-cloud and IoT platforms? Monitor and alarm threshold values?
The Linux container environment offers many possibilities for this.
Routers with icom OS firmware* provide a Linux Container Environment (LXC) where custom software containers can be installed. Linux containers are also known as “Docker” for embedded systems. The router can thus be used as a mini-IPC.
Use ready-made containers from INSYS icom or program your own application!
Energy2market GmbH (e2m) operates over 5,500 renewable energy plants for its customers worldwide. In addition to the direct marketing of energy on the power exchange via a virtual power plant, e2m is very active in the provision of control energy.
In order to regulate the EEG plants, e2m has developed its own software container, which runs on a router in each plant. From a central platform, the plants are controlled depending on the grid and the feed-in power is either reduced or increased. The plant portfolio includes PV power plants, wind farms, biogas plants and a large offshore wind farm.
