General about the control options

The Barnfind philosophy is to make the control predictable, reliable and easy to understand.

Our BarnStudio software comes included in the BarnOne frame price. BarnStudio gives you a quick and easy control setting, an overview of the input and output ports, re-clocking configurations, alarms, full matrix control, cable compensation on the input side, auto SFP detection, full diagnostic information and the possibility to save and load the configuration of your BarnOne frame to or from file.

BarnStudio reads the needed information about every port. In particular, the SFP’s are monitored in a separate list with among others temperature, signal strengths, signal loss, manufacturer, serial number, wavelength, connector type etc. With Barnfind, you are in control of your own solution.

Easy to deal with SNMP/MIB file (IPv4/IPv6). Please ask the Barnfind team if you want to have our SNMP/MIB file in order to use your own software. This is of course free of charge!

Barnfind offers an easily accessable Web interface.

Via BarnStudio, we take care of control and configuration of your Barnfind frame(s).
In addition, we have integrated to many other 3rd party control systems like:

  • openGear / DashBoard / ROSS
  • Skyline (Dataminer)
  • BFE (KSC CORE, KSC SILKNET and control panels)
  • LAWO, VSM and control panels
  • Probel / Snell protocol, SW-P-08
  • TSL
  • Crestron
