Historian

Capture and store high-fidelity industrial big data, to unlock trapped potential for operational improvements

 

Big Data – Collection, Storage and Analysis

Capture and store high-fidelity industrial data. Historian is a high-performance process database capable of storing the huge volumes of data generated from today’s industrial facilities.

Historian combines advanced data storage and compression techniques with an industry-standard query interface to ensure open access to your process, alarm, and event data. It enables faster, more informed decisions while keeping your team fully informed on operational performance.

This video shows you how easily Historian can tame large volumes of data, and put it to work for you.

Industrial Data Management

Historian is the first, large-volume plant data historian to unite high-speed data acquisition and storage with traditional relational database management.

     
     
     
     

Maintaining Business Continuity

High availability, full redundancy, and disaster recovery options keep your business running continuously.

A Complete Picture of Operational History

Unlike conventional relational databases that are not well-suited to production environments, Historian handles time-series data, as well as alarm and event data. Unique “block technology" captures plant data hundreds of times faster than a standard database system and utilises a fraction of conventional storage space.

Optimised Data Storage

Historian combines front-end, high-speed data collection with time-series extensions to an embedded Microsoft SQL Server relational database. Additionally, our patented “swinging door” data storage algorithm greatly reduces data storage requirements while preserving important data features.

Advanced Data Storage and Compression

Advanced data storage and compression combined with industry-standard query language provides easy, open access to all process, alarm and event data. This enables faster, more informed decisions while keeping everyone informed on operational performance. 

Uncompromising Data Integrity

Regardless of your industry, Historian will maintain the data integrity needed for the most demanding requirements. Historian manages low bandwidth data communications, late coming information, and even data from systems with mismatched system clocks. Ensuring high resolution data is captured accurately every time.

Millions of Data Tags

Historian’s ability to handle millions of tags provides plenty of capability to collect and store your vital process, alarm, and event data. Monitor a single process or an entire facility. Store data locally and aggregate at the enterprise level, fulfilling the most demanding analysis and reporting requirements.

Powerful Data Analytics Software

Historian enables you to leverage the true value of your data through powerful visualisation clients and analysis tools.

Advanced Data Retrieval Modes

Built-in advanced data retrieval modes make your data report queries easier to build, more efficient, and more powerful. Eliminating multiple versions of plant operating data in this way increases productivity, reduces errors, and lowers operating costs. Easy self-service production and performance reporting improves planning and compliance. Modes include: Time-in-State, Slope, Counter, Cyclic and Delta, Interpolated, Value state, and more.

Applications and Reporting

Generating real-time and historical data charts and reports has never been easier. The Historian Client includes multiple applications designed to maximise the value of data stored in Historian. Access to plant and process data through easy-to-use interfaces facilitates troubleshooting, flags inefficiencies, and eliminates the time-consuming process of locating data. Applications include: Trending, Reporting, Workbook, Query, and WebReporting.

Reporting and Analysis Tools

Being able to use data is just as important as storing it. Historian covers all of your data analysis and reporting needs. Display historian data via InTouch, or analyse it with Insight, Intelligence, SmartGlance and Dream Report. Or use the Historian Client desktop tool for viewing data trends and basic reports, putting near real-time and historical production details in the hands of operators, engineers, and operations managers.

Data in the Cloud

For customers wishing to host their Historian architecture in the cloud, we also offer Insight — an industrial information management solution that enables data accessibility and analysis anywhere, anytime, and on any device. Whether you are looking to move your industrial data storage to the cloud as a managed software-as-a-service (SaaS) application, or to complement and extend existing on-premises investments, Insight is an affordable option.
