What’s new in this release
External Access to Historical Data
Manufacturing companies continue to require more production data to optimize their equipment and process operations. EIB® OEM now provides the ability to retrieve historical data from the equipment without a client connection via external APIs. Access to these datasets allows engineers and data scientists to conduct advanced analysis on the equipment data leading to reduced downtime and higher yields.
New Code Samples for Access to EC Values at Equipment Shutdown
Expediting root cause analysis is paramount to isolating and resolving equipment incidents and minimizing downtime. New code samples are available to allow access to Equipment Constant (EC) values that provide insights into equipment states during a shutdown. This data can be used with advanced diagnostic utilities to assist engineers with troubleshooting and adjusting persistence values so equipment can be returned to production in the required state.
Enhanced OPC Polling
Equipment manufacturers must continue to update their tool capabilities to meet growing factory requirements for performance and access to more data. In this version of EIB, new OPC driver optimization features have been introduced to cache Status Variable and Equipment Constant values that will reduce communication traffic across the equipment. These improvements will increase overall equipment performance and provide factories with more data to further optimize their processes.
Installation Wizard for Advanced Data Collection
We have simplified the implementation and deployment of EIB OEM’s advanced high-speed, high-volume data collection with a new installation wizard that manages all steps for installing the PostgreSQL database and its dependencies.
