OpenData Machine Edition

Modius offers a low-cost, 'Machine Edition' version of OpenData for monitoring a small number of devices in a remote location.  OpenData Machine Edition is perfect for OEM equipment manufacturers that are looking to provide a turnkey software solution for monitoring the health and performance of their hardware or for facility operators that need to keep tabs on a small number of devices and infrastructure installed remotely (i.e., Server Closets).  The value of Machine Edition is its ability to connect to up to 25 networked or serial devices all from a single instance of the software and then set alarm thresholds and track performance data over time.

OpenData Machine Edition resides on a management system either in the customer's facility or hosted in the cloud. The software collects and evaluates the signals from each device, then transforms those signals into unified, federated view of real-time performance data and alarms for all networked and serial assets from all vendors.

Machine Edition installs as a software application onto any Microsoft operating system and can be run natively or within a VM. The application is browser-based and is completely configurable by the end-user, (no expensive professional services required).  An unlimited number of recipients can receive the alarms via email. The amount of data collected by Machine Edition is only limited by the amount of memory on the local host.

The package includes:

  • Modius OpenData Machine Edition software application, which includes 1 OpenData Collector license that enables automatic data capture from any network-addressable device in the data center, whether power or cooling equipment, environmental sensors, or IT devices.  Each Collector is protocol specific, so all devices being monitored by a Collector must use the same communication protocol, (e.g., SNMP, BACnet, MODBus, Etc.)
  • Modius Protocol Translator

Available Options:

  • Serial Gateway - Modius offers a RS-232/RS-485 Serial Gateway for Machine Edition users that need to monitor equipment with serial interfaces.  This optional hardware component converts serial protocols to IP so performance data and alarm conditions can be sent to the OpenData software.
  • Mini-Appliance - Modius offers a version of Machine Edition that is pre-installed on a mini-appliance for customers that want a “plug and play” solution for equipment monitoring.  For more information, please contact us at info@modius.com.
