Rockwell Automation has released FactoryTalk Historian Machine Edition (ME) version 2.2 software with native connectivity to the OSIsoft PI System. Now PI System users who employ Allen-Bradley ControlLogix controllers from Rockwell Automation have an off-the-shelf, machine-level historian application that can easily transfer historical data.
The native connectivity means FactoryTalk Historian ME can automatically communicate with the PI System, allowing users to easily integrate their PI System with Rockwell Automation products to access a new level of visibility into operations. Such scalable, historian applications allow manufacturers to rapidly tap into manufacturing intelligence and make process improvements by leveraging granular, real-time and historical production data to improve product quality, speed time-to-market and support regulatory compliance.
FactoryTalk Historian applications build on technology licensed from OSIsoft and include additional capabilities inherent in the FactoryTalk software suite to provide premier integration with the Rockwell Automation Integrated Architecture. The FactoryTalk Historian ME application works as a stand-alone, rack-mounted historian or to roll-up into a larger historian systems. Data is accessible from different locations where users can view and analyse historical information.
