omlox - the standard for locating technologies

Localization technologies are increasingly used in industrial manufacturing. Omlox is an open standard for precise real-time indoor localization system. It specifies open interfaces for an interoperable localization system that enable industry to use a single infrastructure with different applications from different providers. As the same infrastructure is used, it lowers the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) enabling easy integration of different applications. One key trait of omlox is that it allows for cyber-physical facilitation, combining the integration of industrial software and hardware solutionsin one common ecosystem.

omlox enables unified access to location data

With the ability to integrate software such as Manufacturing Executive System (MES), asset tracking, and navigation with anti-collision, along with hardware such as drones, AGVs, and loading trucks within the domain of localization – omlox is setting a new benchmark in Industrie 4.0. Omlox enables interoperability and flexibility for different trackable providers within single or multiple tracking zones, which is achieved through two core components: omlox hub and omlox core zone.

The omlox hub enables interoperability and flexibility within different tracking zones while omlox core zone provides interoperability and flexibility within a single tracking zone. Omlox connects localization technologies like ultra wideband (UWB), RFID, 5F and GPS and displays all location data with a uniform coordinate system.

To become a member of comlox community, you must first be or become a member of PROFIBUS & PROFINET International (PI). PROFIBUS and PROFINET International is organized decentralized and we have more than 25 different Regional PI Associations (RPA). To be member of the big community you have to join one RPA. Which one you decide is your own choice.

But we suggest to look for an RPA which is close to your home country and with which language you are familiar with.

Here you will find an overview of all RPAs.

Use the filter and find the contact address to ask the decided RPA for detailed membership information.

In the case as your company is settled in Germany, Switzerland or Austria, we would recommend a membership at PROFIBUS Nutzerorganisation e.V. (PNO). Please use the download for membership application and more information.
