September 1, 2010 - Vision Systems GmbH - Industrial PC provider,
announces the release of an upgraded ARM 9 RISC embedded industrial computer -
OnRISC Alekto LAN
with 2 Ethernet ports and an integrated Ethernet Switch.
This model is a further member of the OnRISC family. Like the initial
it is based on an ARM9 RISC CPU
and runs the full-featured Debian GNU/Linux operating system, now with Kernel 2.6.35.
To learn more about the OnRISC family, please check out the older
Further the product pages
provide much information.
As with all the Alekto and Alena models Debian GNU/Linux is available as operating system.
Vision Systems provides a sample installation of this operating system, an image prepared
for a Compact Flash or microSD card. This software also operates without changes on the
Alekto LAN, as do existing customer applications for Alekto.
So Alekto LAN is suitable to cover the same control and networking applications for
industrial control, transportation systems, environmental monitoring and small office servers.
However the second Ethernet interface is internally connected to an embedded Ethernet switching hub.
So Alekto LAN is predestined for more special networking tasks. It can span a small local network,
while the first port provides as an uplink to data servers or the company network in general.
