Rockwell and OSIsoft Combine Historian Technology and FactoryTalk

ARCwire -- Rockwell Automation announced an agreement with OSIsoft Inc. to license and deliver OSIsoft technology within the FactoryTalk integrated production and performance suite. Under the agreement, Rockwell Automation will incorporate the OSIsoft PI System and related components into the FactoryTalk suite and leverage the FactoryTalk service-oriented architecture to provide integration with the Rockwell Automation Integrated Architecture.

The joint development and technology licensed through this agreement will serve as the platform for a tiered, distributed historian strategy that will leverage a set of industry-focused applications. This approach represents a scalable and cost-effective alternative for manufacturers that want to improve insight at each level of their manufacturing system—from embedded high-speed controls, machines, or work cells to an entire plant or across the enterprise.
