Insight | New Citect SCADA connector now available
Bring your Citect data to the cloud quickly and easily
Wonderware HMI and Historian customers have long been able to easily get their control data out from on-premise systems and make it available in the cloud with AVEVA Insight. While this has also been available to Citect SCADA customers, the new Citect SCADA Connector makes this quicker and easier than ever before.
No more messing around with multiple components or the complexity of OPC-DA, you can now publish directly from the Citect SCADA environment.
Citect and Insight: better together
- Seamless connectivity
- Easy remote access to data for conveying insights
Seamless Connectivity to Citect SCADA
A picture tells a thousand words, and a short video even more! See how easy it is to publish from Citect SCADA in this 3-minute video.
The Citect SCADA Connector is a conduit between Citect SCADA (v7.30 or above) and your chosen destination – this can be a traditional on-premise Historian or, using our latest Citect Connector v3.0, process data can now be published directly to our cloud-hosted platform, AVEVA Insight, using a hybrid approach.
For more detailed instructions read the documentation included with the Citect SCADA Connector download.
Easy remote access to data for conveying insights
With Insight it is possible to collect both a large variety, and volume, of data from disparate data sources. This is stored securely and with high precision in a secure cloud environment. Authorised users can access information via the web or mobile from anywhere, at any time throughout the day and night.
Data is accessible in near real-time, and with operational context, which translates to faster and smarter decision making. Users of all levels (even casual users) can easily understand and interpret critical operational metrics.
Don't be fooled, even though it's simple to use and configure, Insight delivers powerful ad hoc analysis and intelligent reporting tools such as charts, news feed, dashboards, status boards, and alerts. These tools support slicing your raw data into multiple dimensions to accommodate even the most complex and advanced requirements for data analysis and visualisation.
