Linux Development Module for ControlLogix

Linux Development Module for CompactLogix

New to Linux?

Developing and compiling programs is not that much different than for a Windows environment.



What is a Linux Development Module?

A computing device that sits in the backplane of either a ControlLogix® or CompactLogix® system and runs your compiled code. You develop your application in the C/C++ programming language. The module can communicate with the Ethernet and / or serial devices and to the PLC via the backplane interface. Access your data and make fast decisions. Enables OEMs and SIs to provide a proprietary solution without exposing your custom code.

Linux Development Modules features:

  • Runs your compiled code like a PC without all the IT maintenance issues
  • Comes with HTTP, TCP/IP, UDP, SSH, FTP, Telnet support
  • Acts as a co-processor to the PLC
  • API library provided for PLC backplane communications

The Linux Development Module for both ControlLogix® and CompactLogix® requires the development of custom software, using the C or C++ programming languages.
