Leverage your plant data for maximum business benefit

By leveraging the wealth of digital insights available at your fingertips and embracing the power of business intelligence, you can make informed decisions with confidence – the kind that will lead to commercial growth, evolution, and a healthier bottom line.

We developed a 3-step process to help you turn data analysis from a reactive exercise into a proactive one.

Our 3-Step Process



Set up industry-ready networking solutions, identify vulnerabilities, secure networks, maintain power continuity, and ensure your facility is IIoT-ready.



Sustain your facility through data logging and visualisation tools,  remote access monitoring solutions, design systems for your facility and processes, and real-time digital views of your assets.



Capitalise your end-user experiences with custom configuration services, convenient simulation options, and advanced inventory planning and rollout management.

Establish, Maintain and Leverage Connections

Establish (Interface Disparate Systems)

IDX specialises in fully understanding data technologies, interfacing disparate systems, and enabling connections. The technologies that we use include PROFIBUS, PROFINET, EtherCAT, CAN, Nexus, OPC, Modbus, AS-i Interface, Ethernet/IP, and DeviceNet.

Maintain (Data Logging and Equipment Monitoring)

After we establish your connection, we help you maintain it by providing a permanent and remote access monitoring solution, data logging and data visualisation system, preventative maintenance procedure, and diagnostic tools.

Leverage (Custom Applications)

This is why you establish and maintain connections! Now it’s time for you to harness the technology to its full capacity by ensuring safe operation, streamlining and simplifying processes, maximising throughput while avoiding wastage. Continuous improvement and measurement are supported by data analytics.
