Product & services
The PI Server is the core of the PI System. It’s the engine that acquires and delivers data—in real-time—throughout the PI System and your entire information infrastructure, providing open and instant access to all data sources. This unique data infrastructure— specifically designed for processing and storing real-time data—has been refined during 30 years of development and experience in real-world use by thousands of customers in virtually every process industry. The PI Server can store all your critical operating data. This data can then be stored online for years in a single repository, affording you the real-time and historical information necessary to understand your operations. Its time-series database scales effortlessly. It can store vast amounts of operations data online for years at resolutions down to microseconds—without degradation—for instant access from one week to decades past. The PI Server storage algorithm ensures that the real-time and historical data you retrieve represents accurate information by showing precise values—not derived values that are, at best, approximations.
PI System Interfaces
A library of over 450 standard interfaces provides connectivity to most distributed control systems, SCADA systems, energy management systems, distribution management systems, PLCs, lab information systems, and other business systems including SAP—some manufactured as far back as 1980. OSIsoft’s team of interface developers continuously build new PI System Interface products and enhance the existing PI System interfaces. Standard interface products include connectivity to all major industrial automation systems: Emerson, ABB, General Electric, Honeywell, Rockwell, Invensys, Siemens, and Yokogawa. OSIsoft also supports multiple OPC industry standards.
PI System tools include: PI Advanced Computing Engine that can easily create and leverage complex calculations this is a managed interface to PI System data within the Microsoft Visual Studio environment for application development. With minimal effort, users can write simple or complex equations, making PI ACE modules easy to write and deploy. With PI ACE and PI ACE Manager, users can create complex calculations, such as inventory calculations, energy usage, productivity analysis, data transfer programs, and almost any other application that must run reliably without user intervention. Calculations can be scheduled across the enterprise from just one PI ACE Manager. This leads on to the important component PI Notifications that will configure custom alerts based on any data source. PI Notifications can alert a single recipient, a group of contacts, or an entire escalation team that reflects the organization’s chain of command. It leverages the generic data access and template-driven capabilities of PI AF so you can set alert and notification parameters to redeploy to similar assets across the enterprise. It stores notifications and alert events for later access during excursion auditing, reporting, or alert threshold tuning. Notification delivery can be programmatically extended to seamlessly integrate messaging with third-party applications such as workflow, ERP, and asset maintenance systems. PI Notifications links to OSIsoft’s powerful visualization tools including PI WebParts, PI ProcessBook and PI DataLink—use for on-demand visualization of anomalous system behavior.
