IDX Data Exchange solves problems where real-time data has to be moved or shared between incompatible systems or where unique challenges need to be overcome to facilitate the exchange of information.
How does it work?
IDX Data Exchange utilises a modular design that allows maximum flexibility and interface isolation. IDX is built as a Windows service which hosts one or more interfacing connectors or driver modules.
The IDX service operates much like a high performance telephone exchange switching data through a common IDX tag pool. The connectors handle the specifics of converting data from the IDX generic format to the format of the interfaced system and vice versa.
The modularity of the system allows connectors to be stopped and started independently at any time and the service allows for on-the-fly configuration changes such that the service never needs to be stopped when new real-time data elements are added or a new connector is installed.
All IDX services contain an OPC DA 3.0 compliant server and IDX TCP server by default, allowing the relevant clients to connect to any IDX service without any additional configuration. Any combination of connectors can be hosted in a single service allowing for powerful, individualised data exchange solutions.
