Store millions of data streams for years or even decades. Maintain the full original fidelity of your valuable data—down to fractions of a second.
As the time-series database for PI Server, Data Archive stores and retrieves sensor-based measurements. Need to track pressure, temperature, flow rate, and more? Forget about opening a ticket with IT or waiting hours for a query to run. PI Server keeps your valuable data online for immediate, real-time retrieval and visualization—whenever you need it.
See the big picture. Asset Framework (AF) lets you add context to raw data streams. Attach descriptive labels: for example, you might mark an individual tag or data stream as a “flow rate,” “temperature,” or “vibration.” AF attributes let you use natural language to search for the specific information you need. With AF, your data will make sense to users across your enterprise—not just SCADA experts.
AF also supports asset hierarchies. That means you can group all data related to a particular asset and collect multiple assets for a certain site. Think of AF as a convenient way to organize data intuitively and enable drill-down analyses. Customizing hierarchies to suit your individual organization’s needs is easy.
And it’s not just for data from Data Archive. AF can even be applied to data outside the PI System. For example, you can reference asset data from external systems such as maintenance databases or ERP systems—without duplicating data—so there’s always a single source of truth. Your users across the organization get a one-stop-shop for all asset information. System administrators enjoy peace of mind, knowing permissions are maintained securely and centrally.
Create powerful monitoring displays in minutes with PI Vision’s intuitive drag-and-drop tools.
Collaborate and share displays with just a hyperlink. Access data from the field, on any device. PI Vision’s browser-based interface means you can forget about installing and maintaining software locally. Ensure only the right people access your valuable data, thanks to Windows Active Directory integration.
Detecting and quickly responding to deviations in operations is critical. Often millions of dollars–and lives–are on the line. PI Server’s Notifications build upon Event Frames to send an immediate alert when a threshold has been met. And in case recipients don’t see the alert, Notifications can also activate a back-up plan. Eliminate tedious monitoring. Get notified only when critical events occur.
Notifications can include summary statistics and links to troubleshooting displays, response playbooks, and more. With Notifications, you can give engineers the information they need to solve a problem, fast.
Access data previously isolated on remote assets or in secondary networks. Run lightweight PI Adapters on small-footprint Linux or Windows devices to pull real-time data from IIoT gateways and sensor-enabled equipment. Natively route data to EDS for additional edge applications, to your on-premises PI Server, or to OCS, our cloud-hosted database platform-as-a-service for full edge-to-cloud connectivity.
Streamline the configuration process. PI Connectors scan data sources and begin sending data with minimal set-up. Automatically create relevant asset hierarchies. PI Connectors offer a unified administration experience to enable remote management.
OSIsoft has over 225 standard PI Interfaces to help you connect to control systems, SCADA, PLC, lab and other business information systems. PI Interfaces deliver real-time, fault-tolerant data to the PI Server.
PI DataLink, an add-in to Microsoft Excel, lets you quickly add your critical operations data to spreadsheets.
Easily normalize your report to five minute readings. Compare durations of various phases within a batch process. Use your favorite Excel tricks like using a cell reference to specify the report date as =TODAY(), and automatically get today’s operations data every time you open that report. Configure your reporting preferences with a few clicks, and PI DataLink takes care of the rest.
