TuxRail - the embedded linux board for DIN-Rail solutions


End-Of-Life


Free your mind and concentrate on your application!
Processor, memory, USB, Ethernet (even the sockets!) are already there. Simply connect to the Linux-well-supported interfaces: GPIO, UART or I2C and progress your development.
Due to the μSD-slot you have gigabytes of storage. This allows you to have swap memory and run full featured Linux, like Debian. Its ARMEL favour gives you immediate access to thousands of common precompiled packages.
The imx233 processor clocked at 454MHz gives you moderate performance while consuming about 1 watt of power.
You may either create your own application board or, just to power the board, plug an A-A USB cable.

For now just a few pictures of the first instance of TuxRail. It will become the processor board in our smart meter logger.

  • Miniature Linux board based on Freescale i.mx233 processor - 450 MHz
  • 64MB DDR RAM
  • μSD-bootable / i.e. Debian Lenny
  • USB Device/Host
  • Ethernet
  • Application board connector: UART / I2C / 8xGPIO / 3.3V
  • Single 5V Power supply
  • fits into standard RAILTEC B - DIN-rail cases, 2..12 TE
