Emerson Process Management: OSIsoft PI connector for HART-IP
The OSIsoft PI connector for HART-IP is a link between HART field devices and the PI system enterprise software infrastructure for managing streaming sensor data in real time. The connector automatically maps wired and WirelessHART devices to the asset structure in the PI server. End users can benefit from their intelligent field networks faster, more easily, and at lower overall cost.
The PI connector for HART-IP uses the PI system to deliver information to application suites. The connector reduces the cost and effort needed to access and use information from smart wireless gateways and HART multiplexers. Before this release, some information from HART devices was only available through OPC connections that had to be made on a time-consuming point-by-point basis. With this connector, all the necessary linkages populate to their respective applications automatically, giving the user instant access to valuable process and diagnostic information.
The software is based on the Microsoft operating system and is both modular and highly scalable. It can run on its own server or on the PI system infrastructure hardware. Information from wireless gateways and multiplexers goes directly to the PI system and is not dependent on the plant's basic process control system.
