The OSIsoft OPC products include the PI OPC Interface, installed in over 1000 sites, the new PI OPC Alarms & Events Interface, and the new PI OPC HDA Server, which supports reading and writing both current and historical data in PI archives and in the Module Database. In addition, we have the PI Tag Configurator, to create tag definitions from OPC server items, PI AutoPointSync for OPC, and of course the PI Interface Configuration Utility (ICU). We'll give an overview on each of these applications, and a brief update on the current status and plans for the interfaces and server.
I've been writing manufacturing software since 1987, and have been with OSIsoft since 1997. I was a member of the Historical Data Access committee of the OPC Foundation from its inception, and chaired the committee from 2000 until March of 2003. I live and work in Chicago, IL.
