Siemens certifies XLReporter for PCS 7

SyTech has successfully completed testing of XLReporter for use with PCS 7. Reports can be produced by reading real-time process data, as well as historical data.

04/21/2008


SyTech Inc., a provider of report generation and data analysis software, announced that its product, XLReporter has been approved by Siemens Energy & Automation, Inc. as a reporting option for use with the SIMATIC PCS 7 process control system from Siemens. XLReporter enables reporting in Microsoft Office Excel to be performed automatically and in the background.
SyTech has successfully completed testing of XLReporter for use with PCS 7. Reports can be produced by reading real-time process data via the PCS 7 OPC Servers, and from process archives via the PCS 7 OPC Historical Data Access (OPC HDA) Servers.
The OPC HDA interface provides raw and interpolated samples as well as every available calculation in the OPC HDA specification. Additionally, when alarm and event reports are required, XLReporter interfaces with the PCS 7’s OLE DB provider to access data contained in the alarm archives.
