OVERVIEW

New levels of flexibility from the leading provider of open, Internet-enabled, automation infrastructure solutions.

Vykon® is a suite of Niagara-based products designed to integrate diverse smart devices into a unified, Internet enabled, web-based system. Vykon solutions integrate LonWorks™, BACnet™, oBIX, Internet and web services protocols in a software platform that can be used in embedded controllers or server applications. Vykon includes integrated network management tools to support the design, configuration, installation, and maintenance of interoperable networks.

The Vykon AX Supervisor® is a flexible network server used in applications where multiple NiagaraAX-based JACE controllers will be networked together (SoftJACE®, JACE-545®, JACE-403®, JACE-200® or JACE-600®). The AX Supervisor serves real time graphical information displays to standard web-browser clients and also provides server level functions such as: centralized data logging, archiving, alarming, real time graphical displays, master scheduling, system-wide database management, and integration with enterprise software applications. In addition, the AX Supervisor provides a comprehensive, graphical engineering toolset for application development.

oBIX is now included with the AX Supervisor as a means of integrating Niagara-based Release 2 JACEs. With release 2.3.522 or greater, the oBIX driver can be added to expose all data points, schedules, trends and alarms to an AX system. This oBIX driver is both a client and a server.
