Data Historian

Centralized storage for industrial data, including time-stamped production records, machine metrics, and environmental conditions, enabling efficient analysis and insight

Enhanced data collection and analysis

Our combined expertise in analyzing production processes, designing tailored solutions, and developing advanced automation systems extends to data collection, historization, and analysis. This ensures real-time insights and enhanced operational efficiency. Our comprehensive approach enables us to deliver innovative, end-to-end solutions for industrial optimization, providing relevant information at the right time and in the right place.

Optimized operational efficiency

Our Data Historian streamlines complex reporting and simplifies analysis, capable of monitoring single processes or entire facilities, efficiently managing time-series, alarm, and event data. Data is stored locally and aggregated at the corporate level, eliminating redundant data versions. This ensures rapid data retrieval with reduced storage space, ideal for production environments where conventional databases fall short.

Seamless integration with operations control

Data Historian integrates with operations control solutions such as Human Machine Interface (HMI) and Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems. Historical data can also be efficiently retrieved via linked servers and incorporated into any other reporting and dashboarding system. This integration enables faster, informed decision-making and ensures comprehensive visibility into operational performance.

Predictive insights for minimum downtime

Historical data can be readily accessed and analyzed to identify trends and patterns over time, facilitating predictive maintenance by forecasting potential equipment failures and scheduling proactive maintenance. This approach minimizes downtime and maintenance costs while enabling informed decision-making based on accurate and comprehensive historical data.

Centralized data storage for
industrial insights

Data Historian offers centralized storage, creating a comprehensive repository for industrial information, including time-stamped production records, machine performance metrics, and environmental conditions. It integrates high-speed data collection with advanced retrieval modes to access and analyze historical records. By examining past performance metrics and environmental conditions, Data Historian helps identify trends and patterns, facilitating predictive maintenance by forecasting equipment failures and scheduling maintenance proactively, reducing downtime and costs.

Accurate historical information enables informed decision-making, improving operational efficiency and productivity. Designed to handle large volumes of records with real-time processing, Data Historian is essential in rapidly changing industrial environments. This capability provides immediate insights and quick responses to potential issues, ensuring the information is accurate and current. By processing information swiftly and precisely, we reduce the risk of errors and enhance the reliability of data-driven strategies.

Advanced data analysis
and visualization

Data Historian systems include powerful analysis tools and visualization capabilities. They can generate detailed reports and trends, helping to identify patterns, anomalies, and opportunities for improvement. These advanced analysis features enable companies to optimize processes, predict future occurrences, monitor key performance indicators, reduce costs through informed decision-making, and improve operational efficiency by learning from past events. Customized reporting and dashboards that leverage high-performance data processing to deliver real-time and historical analytics can be implemented and customers trained to create dashboards and reports, so they can independently develop them in the future.

We can configure the batch processes using Event Frames to monitor and compare individual production runs, including against a “golden batch”. The system visualizes process data, allowing for detailed comparisons, and alerts operators when the process deviates from the golden parameters.

Integrating data historian into
existing systems

Data Historian integrates seamlessly with a wide range of systems and protocols, including SCADA systems, PLCs, and other industrial control systems. It interfaces with ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) systems through APIs or middleware to provide essential production data and performance metrics. Additionally, it transmits real-time and historical data to MES (Manufacturing Execution Systems) for enhanced production control using standard interfaces or custom connectors.

We implement and customize a structured data assets model, enabling organized and efficient data management, enhancing data accessibility, and improving the overall quality of analytics to suit your organizational framework.

We offer comprehensive support throughout the entire implementation process, from initial installation to final system activation and ongoing maintenance, ensuring continuous technical support and training for our customers. The implementation process includes configuring data flows and establishing connectivity with various industrial devices, resulting in a system that ensures optimal performance and precise data analysis.

Data historian security measures
and data protection

Advanced security measures are implementer to safeguard the data, ensuring compliance and peace of mind specific to industry standards. Communication between the Data Historian and the server is secured using certificates, ensuring authenticated and encrypted data exchanges to prevent unauthorized access and maintain data integrity. Security updates and patches are regularly installed to address vulnerabilities and enhance security features. Regular backups of historical data are performed with secure recovery procedures in place to ensure data continuity and reliability.

Failover redundancy and store-forward is usually configured to ensure continuous data collection and availability even in the event of a server failure, providing uninterrupted operations and peace of mind.
