Highly available systems can be implemented even easier with Powerlink in the future. The 2.2 version of the Open Powerlink stack contains all the necessary functions to implement master redundancy. A big advantage of redundancy solutions with Powerlink is the fast switching times. If one controller fails, it will switch smoothly to the redundant controller within one cycle.
This makes it possible to use high-availability systems based on Powerlink in particularly critical applications, for example in the energy sector, shipping or steel processing. Significant in the development of this redundancy solution was SYS TEC Electronic.
Since Powerlink is fully based on open source technology, the user has maximum freedom in implementing his redundant system. He is not bound by any formality in the implementation and technologically completely independent. Open Powerlink has been downloaded more than 30.000 times from the platform Source Forge. Version 2.2 will be available for download from the end of April:
