Dashboards quickly convey volumes of data in a compact and easily accessible format.
Responsive layouts allow your dashboard to intelligently resize based on the viewing device.
We support BOTH Engineering Environment Themes AND Project Themes!
Engineering Environment Themes
Our Visual SQL Query Builder allows you to visually and rapidly connect, build, and test your SQL queries before using them in your project.
Our Python Integration opens a great way to extend your projects with Python. Vastly increase the power and reach of your existing Python code by easily integrating it with FactoryStudio!
Pre-built Project Templates get you started faster building the solutions you need.
(Each of the Projects includes the items from above and adds to it.)
Our included MQTT broker and clients help you get connected safely, securely, and economically to a wide and growing variety of devices and systems.
Our Industrial Icons Font makes it easy and quick to add modern looking icons to your projects.
Create consistent and modern layouts.
Save time by using an icon font rather than a jpeg/png from the web.
Common icons are included such as Home, Alarms, Warnings, Chart, Gauge, Settings, Search and more!
Easy and smooth resizing since the icon is actually a font!
Multi-Screen Engineering improvements speed development.
Create your projects to support multiple monitors.
Perfect for creating enterprise NOC or other Operations Control Room layouts, or even just dual-screen desktops.
Easily design different layouts for each screen.
Quickly specify which layout you want to appear on which screen.
Connectivity is a key feature of the FrameworX platform and FactoryStudio.
Our new Simulator Driver gives you many options for data types, ranges, and control over which simulation values you can generate.
Pick from a list of data types (including Strings!), and set the Min & Max values you’d like them to range through.
For example, want to simulate a real-world analog device and its response to varying current of 4-20 mA? You can!
Rather use a range that was 0-25 mA so you can simulate a wire break with 0 mA? Do that too!
Speed development by having a team of developers/engineers working at the same time in the same project – without the need for merging or importing.
FactoryStudio also supports Remote Engineering allowing you to have developers utilize a central shared repository and edit a project even when remote (not logged into the project server itself).
As long as they are on the same network they can get to their projects, keeping your server safer by reducing the number of people who need to directly and remotely log into it.
Automatically start our remote communications agent from the server when a project is started, without having to log into the remote system you want to communicate with.
Send data securely across network boundaries to/from multiple projects, only on the port(s) you specify.
With our multi-port enhancement you can now support sending/receiving data across multiple sites through the same gateway, securely.
Tiny but mighty!
Sparklines – powerful and tiny charts, are now embeddable in a DataGrid (Table).
Want to show a quick visual of past data or performance right next to the current value? Now you can!
Use Sparkline trends right next to current values for improved context and possible indicator of where things are heading.
Available in 4 styles, you can show your mighty-mini-charts using “Line”, “Area”, “Bar” or “WinLoss” formats.
Improve your reports with Dynamic Cell Colors. Calculated at run-time, you can vary the cell color of your report tables, making them deliver even more value faster.
Great for regulatory reporting as well as a quick visual history of when values were in or out of acceptable ranges.
Wish you could quickly spot areas that need attention in the shift report? Now you can!
Spend more time fixing issues, and celebrating wins, than staring at numbers trying to figure out what’s great, or not-so-great, about that last run.
Find and Teleport
Need to easily find every place a tag is used in your system?
You can with FactoryStudio! Find, sort, and filter to easily find the tag(s) of interest and ALL the locations it exists.
And then double click to go right to where that tag is used, whether in a display or even a line of code!
This also works for finding other things such as: Alarms, Displays, Reports, Scripts, Devices, Datasets, Historian Tables, and User Created Data Types (UDTs/Templates)
Ever wish you could rename a tag in just ONE place, and EVERY place that tag was used in your project would automatically update?
You can with FactoryStudio!
Even rename a PART of a tag structure with our powerful templates. (e.g. Rename “Revs” to “RPM” even in a tag structure such as: “Area1.Line3.Wrap2.Motor5.Revs.Count”)
Cleanup of your project is important during both project creation and maintenance.
Having unused items in your project makes troubleshooting, maintenance, and understanding your project more difficult and error prone.
So we make it easy and safe to find and remove many unused things:
Now you can easily find if you’ve made any of the above, and either forgot to hook them up, haven’t used them yet, or don’t need them at all.
