The applications developed with the engineering tool are downloaded to one or several distributed controllers.
In order to enable the controllers execute the control logic, nxtControl offers highly efficient and highly portable runtime systems for controllers. These runtime systems are optimised for distributed control systems and implemented according to IEC 61499 standard. Several runtime extensions such as OPC-UA server and WEB server are available as options.
In addition to that, nxtControl has developed a special HYBRID runtime system, which helps the controller to execute both IEC 61499 and IEC 61131 programs.
