Rockwell Automation adds new data historian to FactoryTalk suite

Aimed at helping companies to take a data-centric approach to production process optimization, Rockwell Automation’s new FactoryTalk Historian Site Edition (SE) enables manufacturers to automatically identify, gather and configure high-speed detailed data from any control system or human-machine interface (HMI) software. When coupled with data analysis and reporting solutions, manufacturers can gain a clearer, more accurate view of actual production operations.

FactoryTalk Historian SE automatically discovers all controllers and HMI devices in the plant and their associated data points. This information is presented to the user who can review and approve the data, which can than be configured by FactoryTalk Historian SE in a matter of hours. This represents a substantial time saving when compared with the more traditional approach of manually identifying data points on the plant floor.

The FactoryTalk Historian builds off of technology licensed from OSIsoft and leverages the FactoryTalk Services Platform for integration with the Rockwell Automation Integrated Architecture. It also features two new tools– DataLink and ProcessBook – for displaying real-time or historical data to help manufacturers gather and monitor data from the plant floor in multiple graphical formats.
