Software developer ICONICS, source of Web-enabled Plant Historian and industrial visualization software, has released Hyper Historian V10.8, a high speed and reliable industrial plant historian for mission critical applications.
Hyper Historian provides the high resolution and continuous condition and output monitoring needed to sustain the performance of utilities’ most critical assets. Taking full advantage of the latest 64-bit .NET-based computing technologies and numerous performance features, including full use of multi-core hardware, Hyper Historian is the first plant historian compatible with Microsoft Windows 8, Certified for Microsoft Windows Server 2012, and to integrate with SQL Server 2012. The software also leverages OPC-UA communication standards, as well as a wide variety of other protocols for connecting to existing infrastructure.
“Due to the variable nature of wind power, owner-operators need powerful historians for their analysis and an understanding of individual unit and aggregate wind farm performance,” said Harry Forbes, Senior Analyst at ARC Advisory Group. “A tool such as Hyper Historian is critical for identifying trends and deviations in unit behavior and diagnosing their root causes.”
Hyper Historian V10.8 sports improvements such as:
- Extensive redundancy in V10.8 – Supports redundancy at all levels, including the use of remote distributed data collectors, multiple distributed loggers and multiple OPC classic and OPC-UA interfaces.
- Intelligent asset technology – the software now integrates with AssetWorX, the ISA95 Asset Modeling tool available with ICONICS’ GENESIS64 HMI/SCADA system. Any analysis derived by Hyper Historian can be included as a property of any asset.
- Third-party OPC HDA compliance – Assures interoperability with hundreds of applications and integrates automatic failover to active loggers.
- Performance calculations – The performance calculation capabilities now configures to execute on redundant platforms.
- Data set collectors now gathers and merge large data sets from any device. For example, polling for entire register tables from PLCs that maintain their own trend logs.
The software’s current capabilities include:
• Archiving and data compression at +100,000 Values/Sec.
• Web-enabled configuration and administration
• 2D and 3D real-time charts, trends, grids
• Remote collectors with store and forward technology
• Unattended data archiving and backup
• Real-time and historical data replay
• Performance calculation engine for advanced analysis
• Diagnostic data tracing with event logs
• Mergeworx historical data integration
• Extensible SQI query language
Hyper Historian is used today for plant historians in industrial and utility applications, including wind asset independent performance verification and generation plant monitoring and analysis.
