HxGN SFx | Asset Management

Browsing an Asset in Detail

SFx Asset Management also enables you to only focus on a single asset and drill down into its detailed view to dig up or troubleshoot a problem when an event occurs or an anomaly is found.

The Asset Detail View comprises the following sections:

Use the following methods to enter the detailed view of an asset:

  • Click Go To Asset in an event notification email sent by SFx Asset Management.

  • Click the asset widget in Card View.

  • Click the asset name in Table View.


In the detailed view, a Lite asset can only show the events, utilization data, and executed programs in the full last 24 hours, and does not support the monitoring of program speed and OEE evaluation. See Upgrading Lite Assets for details.

Asset Dashboard

The Asset Dashboard only displays data of the current asset. See Asset Details for more information.


Navigation Pane

Click the image2.png icon to expand the navigation pane for quick asset navigation. All assets in your organization are listed in the navigation pane. Click another asset to navigate to its detailed view.

Utilization Chart

By default, the utilization pane displays the utilization data of an asset in the full last 24 hours.


The Utilization Summary chart shows the cumulative time of each operational status (Operating, Idle, Error, and Unknown) till the current time. The Utilization Over Time chart shows the real-time operational status till the current moment with a timeline.


The Utilization Chart would be auto-refreshed every 5 minutes to reflect the latest utilization data.

The segments indicating the durations of operational statuses that occurred in the non-scheduled time are shown in a darker shade in the Utilization Over Time bar chart. Meanwhile, the segments indicating the operational statuses of the asset that occurred within the scheduled time keep bright.


When toggled on the Include non-scheduled time, the cumulative time of each operational status of the asset in the Utilization Summary bar chart will include the non-scheduled time. See the figure above.

The time range of the asset utilization chart can be 1 W1M for PRO assets. To customize the time, click the image2.png icon and select CUSTOM, and then specify the start date and end date. The maximum customizable time span is 365 days.


Simply put, the date range selected keeps consistent among all the charts and tables in the Asset Detail View. It means the date range you selected in the Utilization chart would also be auto-applied to other charts and tables, including the Programs Executed table, Sensors charts, Downtime Analysis chart, and OEE chart.

Not Operating time includes Idle time and Error time.

Operating time includes the Operating time and Waiting time.

Schedule Time ≅ Operating Time + Not Operating Time + Unknown Time

The calculation of Scheduled Time depends on whether an asset has a schedule.

  • If it has a schedule, Scheduled Time equals the start time of the schedule or shift to the current time.

  • If it doesn’t have a schedule, Scheduled Time equals the time passed today from midnight (00:00 am) to the current time.


A production schedule only can be set up in a day and cannot across a couple of days. A schedule could consist of multiple shifts and the time range of these shifts cannot be overlapped.

A shift is a continuous time slot within a production schedule.

See Managing Production Schedules for details.

Programs Executed Table

In the detailed view, the Programs Executed table shows the data of the programs that have been executed and completed on the current asset in the last 24 hours by default.


The Programs Executed table is only available to PRO assets. For a Lite asset, the data of the programs that have been executed and completed on the current asset is invisible. Upgrade your assets to PRO to see more.

In addition, the Include non-schedule time toggle above the table is turned off by default, which means only programs that have been executed in the scheduled time will be displayed in this table. When toggled on, the programs that have been executed during the non-scheduled time will also be displayed.


Whether a program completes can be judged by a program completed or program end event.

The data includes:

  • Program name

  • Total number of times that each program runs

  • Total time that each program spends in all executions (unit is HH:MM:SS)

  • Average time for each execution (unit is HH:MM:SS)

  • The Ideal time for each execution (unit is HH:MM:SS)


  • You can click the image2.png button to export the Programs Executed table to a .csv file. Click on the image20.png button to specify a time range, then you can export the filtered data to a .csv file.

  • To get the latest data, you can click on the Refresh button.

  • Click any table header to sort the program records in the table in ascending or descending order.

  • Click on the program name with a hyperlink, you will be directed to the program detail page.


The data in the Programs Executed table will be updated per minute automatically.

Sensor Monitoring Chart

When sensors have been installed on the current asset, the Sensors pane displays the Sensor monitoring line chart categorized by sensor type in either of two modes:

  • Separate mode

  • Overlay mode



  • You can click the sensor icon in the Asset Dashboard to directly navigate to the corresponding line chart of the selected sensor type.

  • When you zoom on the X-axis either by scrolling the mouse wheel forward or the Zoom-by-drag button, the scaling in the Y-axis is also adjusted automatically. It helps you read tiny changes, especially when many data points are gathered in a small area.


  • The multi-view charts are only applicable to sensors on CMMs and machine tools.

  • If multiple sensors of the same type have different thresholds, no limit line is displayed in the chart.

    If multiple sensors of the same type have identical thresholds, the Critical or Warning limit line is displayed in the chart.

  • The charts are automatically refreshed per minute.

Multi-view Charts

Under the Sensors tab, select any sensor type from the Sensor drop-down menu.


Here we select the Temperature sensor as an example. You can view CMM temperature data from multiple sensors together (such as axis, workpiece, and environment temps) depending on the availability of each data source.


Generally, under the Separate tab all temperature charts are displayed respectively drawing with different line styles, including

  • X-axis Temperature chart — Displays the temperature data collected by the X-axis sensors of the controller over time.

  • Y-axis Temperature chart — Displays the temperature data collected by the Y-axis sensors of the controller over time.

  • Z-axis Temperature chart — Displays the temperature data collected by the Z-axis sensors of the controller over time.

  • WP Temperature chart — Displays the temperature data collected by workpiece sensors over time.

  • Environment Temperature chart — Displays the temperature data collected by the environmental sensors over time.


You can hide any temperature curve by clicking on the corresponding symbol at the top of each chart.

Switch to the Overlay tab, you can see all temperature curves of various sensors are consolidated into a chart.



  • By default, all kinds of temperature curves are displayed in charts integrally. You can hide any type of temperature curve by un-marking the checkbox next to its sensor type or just clicking on the corresponding symbol under the sensor type. This functionality is especially useful when you would like to focus on a certain type of temperature curve under the Overlay mode.

  • You can download the complete temperature charts into an image by clicking on the image4.png button.

Event Log Pane

The Event Log pane only displays the events related to the current asset.



You can click the event icon, event title, or event description to browse event details in a pop-up dialog. See Browsing Events for details.


You can click the image2.png icon to export events of the asset (for Pro assets only) to a .csv file. Each time, the maximum number of events can be exported is 10000. See Exporting Events to CSV File for more information.


OEE Pane

The OEE pane displays the OEE calculation results and charts for the asset. See OEE for more information.



You can define which metric should be calculated and displayed on the OEE pane as you need in the Edit this Asset screen. See OEE Customization Options for details.
