Weidmüller's u-OS for Device Maintenance and App Integration

Ken Crawford, senior director of automation at Weidmüller USA says, u-OS is designed to “ensure future resilience and ease of system migration by eliminating reliance on a single provider.” At Pack Expo 2023, Crawford explained that u-OS is meant to connect devices to the cloud for remote management. He noted that u-OS combines components for connectivity, such as MQTT, and containerization capabilities that enables Codesys and Node-Red to run on u-OS managed devices. For more information about u-OS, see the article: An Open OS for Cloud Management of Industrial Devices.
