PI System Connector

Batch and process manufacturers can finally accelerate analytics projects and get more value from their extensive process historian investments with HighByte Intelligence Hub.

The PI System Connector for HighByte Intelligence Hub enables users to easily access PI System information, contextualize and merge with data from other systems, and publish information to leading cloud and analytics platforms.
 
Use the connector to connect, read, and write to PI System. The connector supports reading raw points, aggregates, event frames, and assets. It also supports writing HighByte Intelligence Hub instances to PI points or writing instances as elements and templates directly to PI Asset Framework (AF).

Use Cases

Query and mix aggregated data from PI System (e.g., min, max, average) with data from Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES) or Quality Management Systems (QMS) for streaming analytics. Or query years of historical data, model it, and send the data to an advanced Artificial Intelligence (AI) or Machine Learning (ML) platform to train AI models.
