Data historian for connecting industrial equipment to cloud
GE Digital’s (NYSE: GE) Historian 7.0 is a data historian designed to connect industrial equipment from the control layer to cloud environments and is natively integrated with GE’s Predix platform. Historian 7.0 collects, stores, and normalizes time series sensor data from industrial equipment and processes. This information empowers real-time analysis and troubleshooting needed to analyze asset performance so industrial businesses can improve operations and maintenance efficiency. The software features a proprietary archiving and compression technique, native collectors and application program interfaces (APIs) to easily get data in and out, native methods to move data to both HDFS and to Predix, GE’s operating system for the Industrial Internet. Historian installs in minutes with a small footprint, yet it scales to support hundreds of users and millions of individual machine data points. Administration and trending is delivered through a secure thin client web application, providing immediate value, and out-of-the-box data mirroring for high availability and data redundancy. With Historian, collectors can be configured to send data to a customer-premise/edge historian, or to the Predix cloud-based time series data store to support cloud implementations.
