GE Digital released the latest version of its Proficy Historian, version 8.0, which includes enhancements that provide its customers with a more scalable solution for data collection and aggregation across deployments of any size and extends data migration from edge to cloud. The updates include tag mapping, more advanced trend analysis with annotations, and the ability to define an asset model, allowing users to put data in context with business needs. GE Digital’s Proficy Historian 8.0 is a building block for industrial companies seeking to help improve operational performance, increase efficiency and reduce downtime.
Proficy Historian collects and distributes data that helps to improve asset lifecycle and performance, and it is also a data collector suited for cloud and on-premise based Asset Performance Management and Grid Optimization solutions in the power generation, transmission and oil & gas sectors.
The Proficy Historian software solution is tightly integrated with GE Digital’s Proficy HMI/SCADA applications, including CIMPLICITY and iFIX, and Proficy Manufacturing Execution Systems. This integration enables operators to manage machinery and plant processes. GE Digital also introduced a Linux-based Proficy Historian earlier this year that creates a standard time-series product for edge analytic applications. The Linux version of Proficy Historian changes data collection by pushing machine data to the plant level instead of polling from higher level systems, providing a new and more efficient mechanism.
Proficy Historian 8.0 is now generally available.
