Now the only proven solution that keeps your inbound firewall ports closed for networking process data works with historical data. With the new External Historian feature in DataHub v9.1 you can synchronize historical data, through firewalls and proxies, isolating your control network from the cloud or your IT network. And a new Notification feature lets you configure alarms and notifications based on data changes, and send them out by email, SMS, or WhatsApp.
Here is what’s new in Version 9.1.
Connect the DataHub to any of these real-time historians:
- InfluxDB: a popular open source time series database, that comes with Chronograf and Grafana for creating dashboards and doing analysis.
- InfluxDB Cloud: a time series database as a service.
- Amazon Kinesis: ingests and stores data streams for processing in AWS.
- AVEVA Insight: cloud-based analysis for industrial data
- AVEVA Historian: a plant-scale industrial historian (formerly Wonderware Historian)
With External Historian support you can store your data in a compact, easily accessible format. Analyze or display your data using any of the analytical, reporting, or graphing tools available to the historian you are connecting to, as well as DataHub WebView and OPC UA HDA clients.
Tunnelling Historical Data
Combining InfluxDB with DataHub’s Tunneller lets you send historical data across a network, even via proxy servers and DMZs. Built-in store-and-forwarding ensures no data losses during network irregularities. No VPNs, no open Inbound firewall ports.
Alarms and Notifications
Configure alarms and notifications based on data changes, and send them out by email, SMS, or WhatsApp. You can define templates for different states and conditions, bind them to data, send messages, and run custom scripts.
OPC Alarm Generator
Create, aggregate and send OPC Alarms and Events, as the DataHub is now a full-featured OPC alarm generator. Choose either OPC A&E (Alarms and Events), OPC A&C (Alarms and Conditions) or both.
OPC A&E to OPC UA A&C conversion
Convert OPC A&E to OPC UA A&C. Future-proof your system by connecting legacy software to modern OPC UA A&C clients.
Send notifications based on OPC events
Connect to third-party OPC A&E or A&C servers to generate email, SMS and Social media messages when events occur in your existing control system.
Store and Forwarding for Cloud Connections
Connections to Amazon Kinesis, Azure IoT Hub, Amazon IoT Core, Google IoT, and other MQTT brokers now include built-in store-and-forward using the InfluxDB historian. Local data storage ensures no data losses during network irregularities. You gain the reliability of store-and-forward and local historical data visibility with a single configuration.
