Based on a real-time operating system (RTOS), the Automation Runtime system meets the highest demands on deterministic behavior and speed. To take advantage of this performance advantage in the application, an abstraction layer is put over the real-time OS to make sure that the developer doesn't have to readjust his application when switching the RTOS. Automation Runtime makes it possible for the uniform programming interface to always remain the same.
- Maximum performance by optimizing for the hardware being used
- Deterministic cycles with minimum jitter
- Task cycles synchronized with I/O cycles
- Identical behavior for the entire B&R I/O system
