Express Logic offers the most comprehensive portfolio of industrial-grade, pre-certified RTOS and middleware solutions for safety-critical IoT devices
San Diego, CA — August 8, 2017 — Express Logic, Inc., the worldwide leader in royalty-free real-time operating systems (RTOS), today announced that its industrial-grade FileX® high-performance FAT-compatible file management system has achieved compliance with UL 60730-1 Annex H, CSA E60730-1 Annex H, IEC 60730-1 Annex H, UL 60335-1 Annex R, IEC 60335-1 Annex R, and UL 1998 safety standards for software in programmable components. UL is a global, independent safety-science company with more than a century of expertise in innovating safety solutions and about 22 billion products bearing its compliance mark.
The compliance with UL/IEC 60730, UL/IEC 60335, and UL 1998 builds on FileX’s current safety certification prominence. FileX has already achieved the highest level of pre-certification for industrial safety’s IEC 61508 SIL 4, medical’s IEC 62304 Class C, automotive’s ISO 26262 ASIL D, and rail transportation’s EN 50128 SW-SIL 4 standards—pre-certification essential for use in safety-critical devices.
Now, with FileX’s UL/IEC 60730, UL/IEC 60335, and UL 1998 certifications, developers can use FileX to manage and store relevant data for connected appliances and white goods, such as washing machines, dishwashers, dryers, refrigerators, freezers, and ovens.
“The IoT has brought new and exciting connectivity to consumer markets, while the growth and diversity of data capture introduces many challenges for embedded developers,” said William E. Lamie, CEO of Express Logic. “One of the biggest challenges is the demand for ever-more stringent compliance with global safety standards. Now, with the pre-certification of FileX for such standards, embedded developers have a durable, industrial-grade FAT-compatible file management system that makes it easier for them to deliver world-class solutions into those markets.”
