omlox defines interfaces for omlox core zone and omlox hub: using these technologies, UWB-based (ultra-wideband) devices from different manufacturers can be located in one localization zone, and location information from complementary localization technologies can be mapped holistically.
omlox – the open locating standard
omlox is the world's first open locating standard with the aim of implementing flexible real-time localization solutions with elements from different manufacturers, without any project planning expenditure. The founding members, which include TRUMPF, have been committed to the development of open localization solutions since 2017. Since 2020, omlox has been one of the technologies of the Profibus Nutzerorganisation e.V. and is enjoying international success.
What are the advantages of the open omlox standard?
omlox is part of the Profibus Nutzerorganisation e.V., a registered association with more than 1600 members. TRUMPF and many more independent partners from Europe, the USA and Asia are actively driving the new standard for industrial location technologies and developing, promoting and adapting it.
The localization solution is offered as an open system, so it can be combined interoperably with omlox-compatible apps or mobile tags from partners or competitors.
If the customer has decided on an RTLS provider, they are often limited to only choosing their solutions. This is not the case with the omlox standard.
Because of the individually programmed interfaces, integrating a solution from a third-party provider is often expensive. But not with our open standard.
