Syracuse, NY (PRWEB) June 19, 2012
Remote Process Alarms, LLC, makers of Watch*IT OPC Express have added many new features and performance improvements with the release of Watch*IT OPC Express version 2. Building on the success of the previous release, RPA has added features and refinements driven by its users. Owner Jeffrey Steele says “We listened to our customer feedback and have added functionality that makes the Watch*IT OPC Express even more valuable.”
On top of the list of value added functionality is an included historian. In cases where an automation system does not have historical services, Watch*IT OPC Express is an inexpensive path to historicizing Distributed Control System (DCS) or Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition (SCADA) System information and trends. The built-in historian is capable of storing up to 90 days of data for any OPC tag.
Watch*IT OPC Express also works with existing Historical Data Access (HDA) compliant historians. This allows the mobile apps to query and display data from either an existing HDA system or from Watch*IT OPC Express’s own built-in historian. Configuration is simple. Simply point Watch*IT OPC Express to a HDA database and register the desired tags. After registration, users can query the tags from the desktop or mobile apps.
The historian feature adds to a host of features Watch*IT OPC Express already had that help get the most out of DCS, SCADA, HVAC and other Automation systems. Here is a partial list of features found in Watch*IT OPC Express that make using and supporting an automated process easier and effective.
