Proficy Historian 8.0 (photo) provides users with a scalable solution for data collection and aggregation across deployments of any size, extending data migration from edge to cloud. Updates to Version 8.0 include tag mapping, advanced trend analysis with annotations and the ability to define an asset model, allowing users to put data into context with business needs. Proficy Historian software is tightly integrated with this company’s Proficy HMI/SCADA applications and Proficy Manufacturing Execution Systems. This integration enables operators to seamlessly manage machinery and plant processes. Also available is a Linux-based Proficy Historian that creates a standard time-series product for edge analytic applications. The Linux version of Proficy Historian pushes data to the plant level instead of polling from higher-level systems, providing a more efficient mechanism, according to the company. — GE Digital, San Ramon, Calif.
