With Windows operating systems, B&R offers the standard from the PC world to controllers and HMI applications as well. Windows 10 IoT Enterprise, Windows Embedded 8.1 Industry Pro and Windows 7 can be selected as well as the modular variants for embedded use.

Linux or GNU/Linux are usually free, UNIX-like multi-user operating systems based on the Linux kernel and fundamentally on GNU software. Wide (also commercial) distribution was made possible starting in 1992 by licensing the Linux kernel under the GPL.

Windows 10 IoT Enterprise

Windows 10 IoT Enterprise offers the ideal foundation for industrial applications. IoT stands for Internet of Things and represents a focus on universal connectivity of all devices. Windows 10 IoT Enterprise corresponds with the full version of Windows 10, plus advanced safety and locking mechanisms. As the ideal basis for HMI applications with touch screen capabilities, it also offers additional possibilities that increase system security.

B&R supports Windows 10 IoT Enterprise for 64-bit systems. The system is designed specifically for industrial applications and combines characteristics of embedded systems with additional lockdown functions that make industrial PCs more secure. The system is based on the full version of Windows 10, which ensures that all applications and drivers are compatible. It offers optimal touch screen support as the basis for an intuitive user interface.

Individually configure devices

The lockdown functions in Windows 10 IoT Enterprise make it possible to individually configure the device while making the system more secure at the same time. In addition to locking certain functions in the operating system, Microsoft has also included the unified write filter capabilities from Windows Embedded Standard 7 and Windows 8.

These include Write Filter, File-based Write Filter and Registry Filter. They can be used to configure a flash drive for read-only access, for example, or to allow only certain registry keys to be accessed. Any changes made to the registry are thus redirected to RAM. As a result, the system always starts with the same configuration after rebooting. Existing data storage media such as SSD or CFast can be write-protected.

Supported languages in Windows 10

Like its predecessors Windows 7 Ultimate and Windows 8.1 Industry, Windows 10 IoT Enterprise is multilingual and covers all major languages, including those with Arabic and Chinese character sets.

Windows Embedded 8.1 Industry Pro

With Windows Embedded 8.1 Industry Pro, Microsoft's latest operating system can now also be used for industrial automation applications. As the ideal basis for HMI applications with touch screen capabilities, it also offers additional possibilities that increase system security.

B&R supports Windows 8 in the form of Windows Embedded 8.1 Industry Pro. The system is designed specifically for industrial applications and, based on new Windows 8.1 technology, combines characteristics of embedded systems with additional lockdown functions that make industrial PCs more secure. The system is based on the full version of Windows 8.1 Pro, which ensures that all applications and drivers are compatible. Like Windows 8.1, Windows Embedded 8.1 Industry Pro offers improved touch screen support as the basis for intuitive user guidance.

Windows 7

Windows 7 offers a variety of innovative features and performance enhancements. Faster switching to sleep mode, quicker restores, less memory usage and high-speed detection of USB devices are just a few of the advantages provided by Windows 7. Both English and German are available in Windows 7 Professional, while Windows 7 Ultimate supports up to 35 different languages. Product activation is not required for use on B&R PCs, which is a great advantage for simple logistical processes in the area of machine automation.

Windows Embedded Standard 7

The successor variant to Windows Embedded Standard 2009 is Windows Embedded Standard 7. As with previous versions, the embedded operating system offers full system support for the Automation PC 810, Panel PC 800 and Power Panel 500. In addition to new features that are also included in Windows 7 Professional, Windows Embedded Standard 7 includes embedded components such as Enhanced Write Filter, File-Based Write Filter, Registry Filter and USB boot.

Windows Embedded Standard 7 is available in two versions. The main difference is the ability to execute in multiple languages. Windows Embedded Standard 7 is available in a single language, whereas Windows Embedded Standard 7 Premium supports the installation of several languages simultaneously. With Windows Embedded Standard 7, Microsoft has also made substantial improvements in the area of security. The AppLocker program, available in the premium variant, can prevent the execution of unknown or potentially undesired applications that are being installed over a network or from drives that are directly connected. A tiered approach allows the differentiation between scripts (.ps1, .bat, .cmd, .vbs and .js), installation files (.msi, .msp) and libraries (.dll, .ocx). AppLocker can also be configured to record undesired activity and display it in the Event Viewer. Windows Embedded Standard 7 is offered in both 32-bit and 64-bit versions. As a result, even demanding applications based on 64-bit technology are supported.

Linux for B&R

The Linux version created by B&R is based on the respective Debian version. It already contains all the drivers required for the respective device and can therefore be used immediately without any additional effort.
