HMC804x network connection and security


We want to control the HMC804x series PSUs via LAN.

Can you please give me more information about the device's OS and the Web server?


The front controller is driven by mesOS (proprietary OS originally developed for oscilloscopes) which allows no direct access from outside. The WebServer runs on MicroChip hardware. The IP-Stack is based on the adequate MicroChip libraries.

The communication between the Web-Server and the Front Controller is managed over a prorietary serial HW-based interface. This is more or less similar to a HW Firewall.
