PrismTech’s Vortex OpenSplice selected by USE System Engineering for its CEDD® system

Vortex OpenSplice enables data-centric provisioning for USE’s Contactless Energy & Data Distribution technology

NEWCASTLE UPON TYNE, England–(BUSINESS WIRE)–PrismTech™, a global leader in software platforms for distributed systems, today announced that USE System Engineering based in Haaksbergen, The Netherlands, has selected Vortex™ OpenSplice™ as its data connectivity solution for the company’s Contactless Energy & Data Distribution (CEDD®) system, an innovative contactless energy and communication technology.

CEDD® allows energy and data transport to be combined in a two-wired cable system, a base station and contactless user points. With this structured cable concept, evacuation systems in tunnels, Air Ground Lighting (AGL) systems, helicopter decks or dynamic road markings can easily be installed or replaced without galvanic contacting the cable. The CEDD® system is especially designed for situations with high safety requirements and continuous operation, such as airports. (

The essential task of robust data connectivity between platform components is provided by PrismTech’s Vortex OpenSplice, a product proven in numerous business and mission-critical environments in markets such as Aerospace & Defense, Smart Energy, Transportation, Industrial Automation, Transportation, Healthcare and Smart Cities.

Vortex OpenSplice enables decoupling between interfaces, making the provisioning framework easier to maintain and extend. Loose coupling helps reduce system complexity and makes the integration of new components much easier. It also helps enable applications that are portable across products.

“PrismTech is very pleased to be providing USE System Engineering with Vortex OpenSplice for use in such an innovative technology as CEDD®,” said Hans van’t Hag, Vortex Product Manager, PrismTech.

USE System Engineering recently installed AGL lighting systems at some airports in the Netherlands with the CEDD® technology. It was completed in record time thanks to the simplicity of the system.

“Vortex OpenSplice gives us the data connectivity that is crucial for CEDD®,” said Hans van der Kuil, CEO/solutions architect, USE System Engineering. “Vortex OpenSplice is the ideal solution to provide us with efficient, secure and interoperable real-time data sharing.”

Vortex OpenSplice is a key component of PrismTech’s Vortex Intelligent Data Sharing Platform, a suite of interoperable Internet of Things (IoT) enabling technologies based on the Object Management Group®’s (OMG®) Data-Distribution Service™ (DDS™) standard. Vortex provides secure, real-time data connectivity independent of network configuration (LAN or WAN, wired, wireless, mobile) or underlying platform technologies. It can be used by applications to enable seamless data sharing across server, embedded, web, mobile or cloud environments.
