X-CONNECT® Tooling

The X-CONNECT® Tooling makes a difference for saving time and working smarter.
The tools in the platform let you work efficiently with what used to be repetitive and time consuming procedures that earlier fed on available resources or budgets.


The whole system delivery including hardware and software is defined and arranged in the configuration tool. With the configuration tool it is easy to set up delivery projects from scratch. It is possible to import content from IO lists. Changes to a project is easy to manage whenever needed. It is straightforward to add or remove content, or change parametrics of components and content of systems and mimics.


The mimic editor is used for arranging the visual content of custom mimics and drawing animated pipes.


The Deploy tool is used for deploying the configured system to the system hardware and for starting up the system. The tool is easy to use and makes the process setting up and running a system a few-step process.For existing running system the Deploy tool can be used to read back the running configuration.
