Virus Protection

The EP/LP series controllers are implemented as a single body executable developed for a dedicated embedded application. They are not capable of accepting any external programs for execution (useful or otherwise). Therefore the EP/LP series controllers do not require virus protection software running on the controller.

System Logging

The on-board Mercury Operating System does not have ability to record system logs for monitoring/alerting.
