Historical Data and Analysis

This data guarantees production managers all the information they need on the process in order to carry out the necessary analysis to improve their productivity, pinpoint and isolate anomalous behaviour.

This data guarantees production managers all the information they need on the process in order to carry out the necessary analysis to improve their productivity, pinpoint and isolate anomalous behavior. The SCADA’s mission is to allow data aggregation in the simplest way possible and allow recording and file management modalities to be defined and setup in the most appropriate way suited. This important job is thoroughly done by Movicon™ based on the concepts of simplicity, reliability, and openness. Movicon™ has three recording engines, based on a ODBC Manager model to guarantee maximum performance in data precision and openness in choosing the most suited data format at the same time. Movicon™ supports all relational DBs via ODBC but will automatically uses the Microsoft SQL Server™ for default, if not specified otherwise. One recording engine has been designated the task of recording process data using the Data Logger resource, another engine has been designated to the Event Log and the last one designated to the powerful and sophisticated variable Tracing management (i.e., the Audit Trail). As an alternative to using the ODBC recording engines, Movicon™ also provide you with the IMDB manager (In Memory DB), which permits you to record data (Data Loggers, Events or any other data) on simple text format files (.DAT or .XML), which then can be encrypted to allow recorded data to be only viewed exclusively through the Movicon™ controlled access modalities. The historical log management in IMDB can also be activated in part, which is particularly intended for Embedded systems, which require encrypted data.
