hBOX Wireless Historian

hBOX Wireless HistorianThe hBOX, a wireless severe duty historian appliance, is the first product on the market to combine low cost with enterprise class historian performance in a ready to use appliance. A member of the PlantMESH 802.11b/g/n Ethernet wireless mesh network system, the hBOX is ready for outdoor or indoor use. The primary goal in developing the hBOX was to provide an operational historian appliance that could be located directly adjacent to the equipment being monitored, rather than using a centralized historian that attempts to capture data over a remote Wide Area Network (WAN) connection. Most of the geographically distributed industries, such as oil and gas, mining and utilities, need to collect data from remotely located equipment. In many cases, the connection to the remotely connected equipment is bandwidth limited and can have reliability issues. Ideally, data loss could be eradicated by collecting the data locally, then synchronizing the data to the central historian, a scenario also known as "Store and Forward" data collection.
