Asix is a software platform for design and implementation of industrial IT systems for processes, production lines, machines and devices offering rich functionality expected from HMI / SCADA / MESsystems.
Primary use of Asix is the operator station applications for direct process supervision and control (SCADA applications). The expression "primary" is used because it is precisely this place where measurement data is acquired from programmable controllers, counters and other instrumentation devices - process information sources. It is from here that the drives activation and deactivation commands are sent to the controllers, binary and analogue signal logs are saved and the alarm log is registered. In this context, it is natural that HMI applications can also be implemented with Asix running on operator panels, which provide a limited subset of the functionality required at the SCADA level.
Asix can be successfully applied in Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES). In these applications issues related to on-line production tracking come to the fore as well as determining the overall equipment effectiveness (KPI, OEE), a multi-dimensional analysis of the process data and reporting to enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems. Asix provides the necessary support in each of these areas.
Asix is being developed by ASKOMsince 1994.
Since 2012, Asix was released with a new interface in Evo version - under the name Asix.Evo. In 2023, we dropped the .Evo suffix, and Asix was enriched with a user interface based on HTML 5, independent of the platform it runs on.
Scalability should be considered in two aspects: the number of variables supported by the application, and functionality of the product. The 'number of variables' criterion allows to select the size of the package, and consequently its price, appropriate for the task to be performed. In a natural way the scale of the task can be determined by the number of process variables entered in the system. Available for the client are licenses ranging from 128 up to unlimited variables. Regardless of the 'number of variables' criterion, licenses can be selected from different functional areas: the operator panels, serving as HMI, operator stations for developing stand-alone applications, up to servers allowing construction of network applications with redundant communication channels and ability to connect terminals, including the Web browser based.
Wide range of features available as a standard
Wide range of features available as a standard at no extra charge. Our policy on this matter is clear: to minimize the number of modules paid extra and offer as much functionality as possible at a base price.
Help and support
Help and support are also the product strengths. Consultants available in-house will help designers solve problems with application development and assist users in solving the issues related to the operation and maintenance of the visualization system.
Attractive price for all rich functionality
One Application - Different Permissions
One SCADA application, but the available information and possible actions depend on where it is run and by whom it is operated. The application's wide range of tools and functions, combined with a precise system of privilege control, makes it possible to customize the range of possibilities offered to the user depending on his needs and competence. The ranges of functions and privileges are not rigidly assigned - they can intermingle, complement each other and be modified at any time.
Asix Rich Reference List
Asix is an excellent platform for creating standard supervision and control applications in all industry branches as well as monitoring systems for energy media, switchboards and machines. This is confirmed by more than 16,000 licenses sold for installation in a wide range of demanding areas, including:
Power generation and heating
Food industry (dairy, meat and sugar industry)
Chemical and mechanical industry
To sum up
The choice of Asix platform is the right investment decision justified by advanced technical solutions and unparalleled product value. This was also acknowledged by Frost & Sullivan consulting company, which granted the "Price Performance Value Leadership Award" to Asix in the category Polish SCADA, taking into account the criteria for price competitiveness, functionality, ease of use, service assistance and degree of meeting customer needs. The Asix system was also awarded the Gold Medal of the Automaticon international fair three times.
