INTEGRATE, CONTROL, MANAGE, ANALYZE,VISUALISE & CONNECT


INTEGRATE,  CONTROL, MANAGE, ANALYZE, VISUALIZE AND CONNECT

Born out of the need to simplify  smart buildings and  smart equipment and IoT

 The FIN Framework (FIN) is the principle technology of OpenXpress’s Innovation offering.

FIN is a software suite that provides monitoring, control, scheduling, alarming, visualization, integration and analytic capabilities that can be integrated by OEM’s into a range of products and services. FIN can also be used by system integrators as an out-of-box software.

OpenXpress can run on controller, server and can be hosted in the cloud

OpenXpress is deployable on multiple platforms – from Linux based edge controllers to servers and hosted in the cloud.

OpenXpress includes a comprehensive control engine with easy to use configuration UI that supports line by line, function block and state machine control logic options

At server level OpenXpress can run on Linux, Windows and MacOSX, providing a highly intuitive graphical UI for touchscreen and browser accessible supervisory applications, with easy to create dashboard, smart alarm, and fault detection diagnostics features.

Hosted in the cloud, OpenXpress can be containerized for ease of deployment, and we use AWS to offer highly secure authenticated remote site connectivity to simplify multi-site portfolio management.

For cloud based edge management, also see our new product on the Edge2Cloud product page.


OPEN  

OpenXpress is designed to be open; supporting all the major protocol standards used in buildings today, to enable integration with multiple building systems and IoT deployments.

OpenXpress utilizes several open source libraries, including AM Charts for dashboards and React UI tools to enhance functionality, and to provide great resources for OEM developers.

OpenXpress leverages the Haystack open source project by using tagging to automate configuration process and deliver context-sensitive information to give a highly intuitive user experience.



FAST

OpenxPress uses FIN’s databse engine which is based on a fast flat-file database optimised for time series data sets, which offers much faster large query performance than is possible with relational databases like SQL.

DB Builder UI tool has multiple tree views, drag & drop selection for much greater engineering efficiency.

OpenXpress also features auto-generated configuration, enabling the creation of an entire project from a spreadsheet using our import utility wizard.

Expanded templating in Openxpress simplifies device configuration.

OpenXpress delivers huge time saving for all aspects of a project, including points, control logic, graphics, summary, O&M manuals and OEM specific features.



ROBUST

OpenXpress is more secure than ever, having passed ISTS penetration testing and having been designed to comply with the IEC62443 security standard.

OpenXpress uses the Siemens cyber-security initiative to ensure all aspects of the framework are continually monitored for vulnerabilities and threats, with regular updates as necessary to ensure FIN continues to be robust and secure.

FIN development has followed new software quality processes and has enhanced documentation for both users and developers.



EXTENSIBLE

OpenXpress is faster than ever for OEMs to customize and develop additional features and functionality on top.

The  API documentation has been enhanced with a new developer UI reference document system to make it easier to find specific info.
