FBRT

as described in (2012) The IEC 61499 Function Block Standard: Software Tools and Runtime Platforms: 

Like the FBDK software tool, this runtime platform was developed in the Java language and used for early feasibility testing and demonstration of the IEC 61499 architecture, using embedded Java technology from Imsys Technologies . Subsequently, it was used in a number of research projects with the now obsolescent Netmaster hardware platform.
