SFx Asset Management includes two components: a cloud application, and a client application called the SFx Connector, which is installed on each asset’s computer. The SFx Connector monitors KPIs from all available compatible sources, including metrology software, the controller and sensors. The data is then encrypted  and transmitted securely over the cloud, enabling designated users to access it remotely.
