Asix is a software platform for design and implementation of industrial IT systems for processes, production lines, machines and devices offering rich functionality expected of HMI / SCADA / MES systems.

Asix is being developed by ASKOM since 1994. In 2012, Asix has been released with a new interface in Evo version - under the name Asix.Evo.

Correct Asix.Evo operation is supported for the following operating system software: Microsoft Windows 7 SP1, Microsoft Windows 8/8.1, Microsoft Windows 10, Microsoft Windows Server 2008R2 SP1, Microsoft Windows Server 2012 / 2016 / 2019 (use one of the earlier versions of Windows does not guarantee full functionality of the product) on hardware equipment which fulfils the operating system requirements. The Microsoft .NET Framework 4.72 platform is required for proper Asix.Evo package operation. Run the application in a web browser requires Internet Explorer 8 or later, or Firefox / Opera / Chrome browsers equipped with the IE Tab addition.

Primary use of Asix is, of course, 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 by SCADA.

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.

In an excellent manner, Asix meets both the requirements of simple applications for single computer stations and complex multi-terminal systems, supporting the entire manufacturing enterprise within one integrated environment. References include examples of system implementations executed by ASKOM and its authorized IPA partners.

Asix offers a rich set of more than 100 communication drivers for a wide range of controllers, regulators and metering devices. Communication can be implemented simultaneously through a number of different physical channels – Ethernet, field bus, serial ports, the Internet. Besides numerous protocols of globally renowned manufacturers such as Siemens, GE Fanuc, Beckhoff, Wago, ABB, Schneider Electric, Omron, Festo, Saia, Mitsubishi, Advantech, Emerson, LG, Phoenix – support for standard protocols including OPC DA 1.0, 2.0A, OPC HDA, OPC A&E, OLE Automation, OLE DB, CANBUS, CANopen, DDE, DLMS, DNP3, IEC61850, IEC62056-21, M-BUS, Modbus RTU, Modbus TCP/IP, NCP, Profibus, Profinet, SNMP has been implemented in Asix system.

As proof of professionalism and innovation, Asix won three Gold Medals at AUTOMATICON International Fair (in 1998, 2006 and 2019), AWARD of SOFTARG’95 International Fair in Katowice, and 2010 Price Performance Value Leadership Award granted by Frost & Sullivan.
