PI Interface for OPC UA

While it is understood that adapters are the future of data source connectivity; there is an immediate need for existing PI system users (especially in the Chemical industry) to transition their data sources from using OPC DA to OPC UA. Many of th...

Remote PI ICU

Regardless of where interface info are stored (PI Module DB or AF), it would be useful to have a remote client tool allowing administrator users to configure interfaces  like they do with tags and AF objects. Today when you have to change configur...

Migrate the PI ICU settings away from the PI Module Database

PI ICU settings are currently the main reason why the PI Module Database continues to live on even the most up-to-date PI systems. Please consider migrating the PI ICU settings from the PI Module Database to the PI Asset Framework or a separate fi...

Store bad quality from OPC server

Enhance the OPC DA Interface to store bad quality values from his OPC Server in PI, so that the values, timestamp and status from bad quality data are saved in PI.  Note: This was previously Enhancement 114636.

Update EFGen Interface Health Tags To Allow For Better Status Monitoring

The current EFGen interface "Status" health tag displays a value of "Good" if it is connected to the data source but does not factor in if it is writing Event Frame data to PI. There is not currently a straightforward way to drive a PI Notificatio...

OPC interface retries sending InstrumentTag/ItemID to OPC Server

The idea is to have PI Interface for OPC DA/HDA to be able to send again Instrument Tag/Item ID after a configurable time when OPC Server is not able to resolve it (AddItem failed). This would be a workaround for an OPC server issue and would help...

Add SOAP 1.2 support to the PI Interface for OPC XML-DA

The current version of the PI Interface for OPC XML-DA seems to only support SOAP 1.1. All recent OPC XML-DA servers are developed following SOAP 1.2 standards, meaning the PI interface will not connect. Please enhance the interface to also suppor...

PI EMDVB Interface should not use the STARTUP.dat to determine recovery start time when configured in Failover and running in RealTime mode.

Currently when the PI Interface for Emerson DeltaV Batch (EMDVB) is configured for failover and running in RealTime mode, the interface will use a recovery start time (RST) based on the last time the interface was active. This results in the inter...

Enhance the OPC DA interface to avoid mixing polled and advise tags on the same scan class

The interface does not log any informational messages about polled and advise tags getting mixed up on a scan class. Currently it would detect that polled tags are part of scan class 1 and reject it and print the following: E 13-Apr-16 17:26:18 ...

Batch interfaces keeping merged child operation EventFrames open until the parent Operation EventFrame has been closed.

Currently for batch interfaces using the /MUP parameter, child operation event frames might be reopened and closed multiple times until the last operation event frame closes and the child event frame is closed for good. For example with UnitProced...
