A cement manufacturing facility worked with us to implement a process historian and data visualization tools for its R&D plant. We completed the work on-site, working directly with the facility personnel to specify the data to be stored in the process historian.
Our staff worked with a solar power provider to develop and implement a web-based monitoring system for use at 3 of their new solar power plants. The website was configured to allow internal users to monitor real-time data from each facility, with data access to the general public on a 30 day delay. The system provided operational staff with automatic email and text notifications of equipment alarms. The site included functionality for customer invoicing and utility reporting to comply with regulatory requirements.
Corso met with the SCADA operations team for a large solar power provider to discuss a standardized system built using Wonderware System Platform. The goal was to build objects for the various pieces of equipment at a solar plant, inverters, breakers, power meters, etc., to enable rapid deployment of SCADA systems for new facilities. As part of developing the system, we developed a standardized naming convention for the facilities and all of the data points to allow a script to populate a centralized OSI PI Historian with data from each facility.
A diatomaceous earth processing company had two facilities with Wonderware Historian installations on older server hardware. After years of exposure to an extremely harsh environment, the server at one of the facilities catastrophically failed. We were able to recover historical data from the machine and exported it to FactoryTalk Historian. The Wonderware Historian configuration was migrated to FactoryTalk Historian and the data was imported with no loss of data.
