A revolution in the palm of your hand

Oxtopus, a hyper configurable router

Oxtopus is more than a mere router as it offers 12 different settings by enabling/disabling : its 4 ports, the Wi-Fi and Ethernet switches.

Oxtopus has such handy functions

Occitaline doted Oxtopus with very carefully studied functions, sometimes unique on the market to satisfy your field needs.
Oxtopus is collecting, sending, centralizing data in order to keep you informed in real time how your system is operating.

Embedded multi-protocol

Oxtopus is interfacing both LonWorks and Modbus protocols to reduce integration time as only one set up is required on the supervision level in case of adding or replacing a device. Effortless, the operators do not need any bridge between devices or between brands since it is already integrated in the router.

Diagnosis tool

The front of the router says it loud and clear: Oxtopus gives a DEL status diagnosis of impedance for each port. In addition, you can read the whole statistics on the embedded website from any mobile device (PC, tablet or smartphone): real time graphs, raw or combined-cross data. If diagnosis indicates bandwidth use and CRC failure ratios, it also measures lines impedance permanently in order to watch over good electrical conditions of use.

Permanent impedance measurement

Oxtopus is the only router that measures impedance, and it does it permanently on each Lon/Modbus port to detect any beginning of system failure and cure it as a preventive measure rather than curative measure after inoperative system.

Simple start up

Simply turn the Wi-Fi on to easily log onto the router's IP address and join the network. A wizard assistant helps you to set up the installation step by step.

2 Ethernet ports

You can choose your own configuration with an internal switch on both Ethernet ports: easy connections of devices on the router to make a daisy chain or connection on a local PC.

3 advantages of Wi-Fi

Wi-Fi advantages are threefold:

1. Connection to a PC via Ethernet to access data base on a distant server

2. It is also another access point to the router's diagnosis and enables to set up the router with a PC, a tablet or a smartphone wireless, which is more than convenient in a building site.

3. Wi-Fi is also at stake in network security: activate or deactivate it to restraint distant actions as only one connection at a time is authorized.

Finally, Wi-Fi can connect routers one to another: a router can be configured as an access point and the others as proxy/wifi or “simple wifi device” connected to the network.


Occitaline has developed Ox-core, a standardized hardware platform intended for BAS solutions manufacturers who want to offer modern, fast, communicating and simple-to-use products. Occitaline offers its expertise whether to adapt the existing technology to meet manufacturers' needs or to develop OEM products for them.

Occitaline Ox-core base

2 communicating processors

Linux processor treats data and updates devices.

A real time core deals with more accurate tasks while treating a great number of devices. An extremely precise clock treats data in less than 1 second to correlate in time several data acquired on several devices or several routers.


Can receive 4 slave devices using any protocol or any acquisition system (including analog systems)

2x 100Mo Ethernet ports with embedded Ethernet switch feature

You can chose to commute the switch: either to connect in series or double IP to have either a double Ethernet or an embedded IP router configurable on a web server.

SD Card

SD card updates the core, stores data and represents a large, non-volatile memory space available. You can remove it from the core to read data on a PC without any coding in case of power cut. The router records data base in RAM and then stocks it on the SD card.

Internal USB-A

You can connect a Wi-Fi key or any other USB device (for instance storage USB device).


Enables communication between acquisition channels and the network receiving data. It is easy to log onto the network and collect data locally.

LCD screen and 4 front panel buttons

To easily navigate and dialog with the router

Front panel micro b-USB plug

In order to easily plug a tablet, smartphone or USB key and collect complementary data. It is possible to turn it into power supply.

8-36V DC and 6-24V AC power supply

In order to answer a great range of needs and to ensure the router is operating even in case of connection errors. It is also protected against overvoltage.

Embedded website

Is made for configuration and exploitation. It gives the user a modern, responsive technology with embedded lite framework, jQuery library to display graphs and forms adapted to tablets, smartphones and PCs.


L'Ox-core was designed with very open web, hardware and OS technologies to cover a very wide range of needs. This Ox-core base is meant to be adapted to a great number of applications receiving all GTB protocols: BACnet, KNX, LonWorks, but also any other protocol such as Profinet for analog acquisition and measurement; IB+ or DALI for light management; Mbus for supervision, etc.

Daniel Zotti

After his engineer graduation at ENI Brest, Daniel Zotti began his career in Bendix Automotive (today Siemens Automotive) where he was in charge of operational tests means in automotive production lines. He became familiar with measurement, metrology, IT, exploitation system UNIX, networks and Oracle database. Then he passed to supplier's side and joined a services company where he managed the advanced technology pole. In 1994, the American company Echelon set up LonWorks protocol, first open and programmable field bus used in Building Automation Systems (BAS). Daniel Zotti became the French instructor for Echelon and trained the first generation of LonWorks products developers, he also trained solutions integrators and manufacturers for the 20 following years. In 1993 he started Newron System, a company that became a worldwide reference in GTB software solutions using LonWorks (KNX and BACnet afterwards). The very same year, he co-founded the association LonUser France (today Lonmark France) with Didier Tymen with the objective of federating and animating LonWorks actors around the possible ways of commercial and technical developments. For the last 12 years, Daniel Zotti has appealed all over Europe to carry out expert's reports on buildings using LonWorks technology, gathering a unique, global vision of issues in network infrastructures. In 2013, Occitaline creation was the logical step of his technical and commercial work: both using knowledge and experience to imagine and finalize the new generation of infrastructure products intended for BAS networks.
