OSIsoft PI Connector for HART-IP
Emerson Process Management and OSIsoft have introduced the OSIsoft PI Connector for HART-IP, a link between HART field devices and OSIsoft’s PI System enterprise software infrastructure for managing streaming sensor data in real time.
The product automatically and seamlessly maps wired and WirelessHART devices to the asset structure in the PI Server, eliminating effort and chances for error. It is said to enable users to gain benefits from their intelligent field networks faster, more easily and at lower overall cost.
Emerson is developing and deploying numerous diagnostic and optimisation packages that analyse field device information to help improve process management, energy consumption and plant safety and reliability. The PI Connector for HART-IP leverages the PI System to serve up information to these application suites.
The connector was jointly developed as an integral extension of OSIsoft’s capability. It is said to reduce the cost and effort needed to access and use information from Emerson’s Smart Wireless Gateways and HART multiplexers.
Prior to this release, some information from HART devices was only available through OPC connections that had to be made on a time-consuming point-by-point basis. With the PI Connector for HART-IP, all of the necessary linkages populate to their respective applications automatically, giving the user instant access to valuable process and diagnostic information.
The software is based on the Microsoft operating system and is both modular and scalable. It can run on its own server or on the PI System infrastructure hardware. Information from wireless gateways and multiplexers goes directly to the PI System and is not dependent on the plant’s basic process control system.
