EDGE-X is Expro’s PC-based service data management system for use with WindowsNT. The system takes full advantage of the extensive multi-tasking capabilities of this 32-bit IT platform and user-friendly Windows GUI Interface. Migration to Windows has also enabled a simple plug and play design philosophy to be adopted for interfacing the system with multiple dedicated sensors and third party equipment.
The hallmark processing power of EDGE-X is derived from the division of process control between the host computer and sensor interface modules. The host computer is responsible for data management, manipulation, archiving and transmission only.
The sensor interface modules are responsible for gathering raw measurements and performing appropriate conversion to engineering units before sending data to the host computer.
