Packages included with the NPE/iMod

NPE is a reliable industrial computer based on the Linux system, equipped with many interfaces and protocols. The R&D department of the TECHBASE Group Sp. z o.o. company constantly works to implement new protocols and packages and to modify and optimize existing packages.

Packages enable fast and easy installation of the applications found in them. In order to facilitate the installation of selected packages, some of them are available to the user just after the NPE device is connected to the Internet from the level of the console through the use of the Software Manager.

All packages available for installation from the level of the console have been presented in the table below:





This package starts an HTTP server. Thanks to this, the user has the capability of creating WWW visualizations using the PHP language.


This package enables downloading of pages and files from servers. This library also makes it possible to use many protocols, including HTTP, FTP, and Telnet.


A package for management of the modem and GPRS connection.


This package installs iMod software on the NPE platform. iMod software changes the NPE platform into an innovative and efficient telemetric module for control and monitoring of devices and data registration.


A virtual Java machine that introduces the capability of running applications written in Java.


A package supporting the hardware resources of the NPE device.


This package installs an interface built using innovative technology on the device, for building and managing the device from the level of a WWW browser.


This package gives access to basic tools enabling the use of 1-wire interface resources.


This package introduces SSL and TLS protocol support. These protocols increase security during data transmission.


This package makes is possible to connect to virtual VPN networks through Ethernet or GPRS/EDGE. An NPE device using this package may fulfill the role of client and server.

This package allows support and management of SMS messages.

Software Manager

This application makes it possible to remotely update the packages on the NPE platform.


This package installs communication protocols used in a TCP/IP network. Thanks to this, it is possible to manage an NPE platform by using the SSH protocol for communication.

In addition, there is a capability of installing other packages on the NPE device. The base of packages available through Software Manager and those that may be installed manually is constantly being developed with successive modifications to the firmware and along with individual demands for additional functions.
