New PI Connector delivers data from OPC UA-based devices to PI System providing access to data from devices ranging from distributed control systems down to small embedded devices

Berlin, Germany and San Leandro, CA (September 27, 2016)—OSIsoft LLC, a global leader enabling operational intelligence, today announced PI Connector for OPC UA for exchanging operational data between OPC UA-based devices and the PI System.

OSIsoft also announced that it is collaborating with Honeywell to optimize PI Connector for OPC UA for scalability to accelerate commercial adoption. The announcement was made at theOSIsoft EMEA Users Conference taking place this week in Berlin.

PI Connectors are one of OSIsoft’s newest technologies. Connectors deliver data from sensors, control systems to the PI System, which serves as a data infrastructure for commercial and industrial enterprises. The PI Connector portfolio is the fastest and easiest way to connect new data sources to the PI System. PI Connectors can intelligently scan a data source and beginsending data to the PI System with minimal configuration.

PI Connector for OPC UA also improves performance and stability. The underlying framework is up to ten times faster than previous data collection technology. The new connector also supports the Data Access (DA) and the Historical Access (HA) parts of the OPC UA specification.

Honeywell has developed a high performance OPC UA Server that can deliver one million plus monitored item notifications per second on a standard business class platform. It is also able monitor simultaneously changing values at faster than hundred millisecond rates, opening the doors to new, innovative ways of utilizing the data previously locked away in their systems.

OSIsoft has developed PI Connectors for BACnet, Ethernet/IP, HART-IP, CygNet, IPMI and many more.
