Hardware Options and Compatibility 

FIN Framework software is hardware agnostic; it can run on any suitable device that supports the Windows, Linux or MacOS operating systems.
There is also the option to use our our own F200 Edge Controller.

If you wish to use FIN Framework on embedded hardware, there are three options:


Work directly with an existing
OEM of J2 Innovations

There are multiple OEMs who offer products based on FIN Framework running on their own hardware platform(s). Have a look at our OEM partner list or get in touch with us to find out more.


Run FIN Framework on an embedded PC

FIN Framework can run on any embedded PC (such as IPC, Raspberry Pi) provided the specification meets our minimum requirements (see below). Installation on Windows or Linux based devices is straightforward, and does not require any development or testing, unless you wish to implement RS485 serial port support. More constrained platforms running embedded versions of Linux such as Otaku or Debian will require a small amount of development effort. We can recommend the OnLogic range of fan-less industrial PCs and have tested that FIN runs well on the CL200 and CL210 versions. On request we can supply an image for the CL200 Linux Ubuntu platform. We can also recommend the Lenovo ThinkEdge SE10.

How Fit4FIN works

The OEM partner works directly with J2 Innovations to receive their FIN Framework based software product, branded and customized (as required) to their needs. The OEM partner also works with one of our Fit4FIN partners to receive the right hardware product that fulfills their specific use case requirements. The commercial and technical relationship for the hardware product is direct with the Fit4FIN partner. Optionally, we can provide the OEM partner’s FIN-based software image directly to the Fit4FIN partner so they can supply the software pre-installed on their device, to simplify deployment.
