X⁵ – copy systems are designed to support customised workflows and copy processes tailored to our customers’ specific needs. Application ranges from automatic storage of individual product-specific data to Just-in-time production and simple copy processes. When implementing a storage process we consider and incorporate your entire production workflow and adjust the X⁵ – copy system to your specific needs.

In addition to recording and verifying the data on data carriers, encryption mechanisms, authentication processes and communication security are also taken into account. That is why the X⁵ system can be used worldwide. The combination of special software and hardware components allow individual security strategies that cover the whole life-cycle of a product.

Internal production & SW Deployment

  • In industrial production X5 systems optimize the possibilities to deploy always latest and per order individualized SW to the produced devices
  • Every device can have individual SW and encryption. This prevents hacking and simplifies production workflows

Government

  • The X5 system enables high security production of confidential data with individual encryption

Fulfillment Services

  • All data is encrypted on the X5 system. Remote location cannot modify any data

Secure
Each data carrier can automatically be recorded with unique data (e.g. encryption, individual software key). This allows highest security standards as each mass product is delivered with customised software. If one gets hacked, products from the same series will not be leaked too, as they can have different individual specifications.

Individual
X⁵ automates the production of 1:1 copies integrated into the environment of mass production. Before the actual copy process starts, X⁵ pools data together from different sources (e.g. file server, databases, ERP, PPS) and prepares data individually for one (1:1) or many (1:n) data carriers. Various data preparation processes (e.g. document production, matching of data, encryption, video formats) are supported.

Scalable
Hardware and software are designed modularly. The number of recording modules can be adjusted according to the required throughput and data volume. A later extension of additional modules is possible. Recording jobs can also be distributed among several X⁵ systems.

Different Data Carrier
Recording on different types of data carrier happens parallel through using adapters and/or various modules. The system automatically recognises the type of medium and starts the defined recording process. Media sets can be recorded in one working process.

Just-In-Time and Asynchronous
Recording (and validation if required) of data take place asynchronously. The copy process starts immediately after insertion of a data carrier and/or all information concerning the product is available in the centralised data storage.
Idle periods while loading or unloading X⁵ are reduced to a minimum. Reliability is increased as faulty copy processes are taken over through other slots immediately.

The clustering of (de-centrally located) X⁵ systems enables peak production. Data carrier are recorded on demand and contain respective data assigned to different products. Each slot indicates completion individually and can be assigned to the corresponding product accurately.

Uninterrupted Copy Process
Every single one of the up to 80 slots is used asynchronously and records data on different storage media with up to 200 Mbyte per second. After the recording process, a validation of the data takes place. The recording of special security media (e.g. dongles) is supported. In case of faults (defective or faulty data carrier) in one slot, all other slots are still working without any impact. Faults are displayed immediately and the affected recording process is continued in another slots or after removal of the defective and insertion of a new data carrier.

Simple Handling
X⁵ is controlled over web interface. Therefore, a monitor and a keyboard are connected (e.g. a table PC). LEDs at each slot display the status of the production. The flexible interfaces and adjustable software plug-in mechanism facilitate optimal integration of the X⁵ copy system into a company’s workflow, e.g. through connection with central ERP or PPS systems.

Sustainability
The X⁵ copy system is the most flexible storage media management system on the market. The use of adapters enables the simultaneous storage of data on various media types or on media sets. This ensures that the X⁵ can be geared up for future generations of media. X⁵ copy systems can be extended with additional features and modules subsequently. Long term availability of components and spear parts ensure a long life time.

Software
The software framework with OpenRC has a very flexible interfaces. This allows different data sources, job orders, upstream and downstream processes, etc. to be connected easily and flexibly. The display can be adapted to customer-specific conditions through adapted workflows and processes. Signal lamps and On-screen overviews show the current status of production in real time and enable easy operation by the responsible employee. Three areas, Touch Screen, Web Interface, SW Interfaces (XML, REST), are available to to check the X⁵- copying system and to monitor the status of each single data carrier.
