Access to historical data is an important aspect in any smart system upgrade and integration. From data/trend analysis, process optimization and failure prediction to pre-emptive maintenance, analytics rely on complete historical data being available before any meaningful action can be taken.
OPC UA, which features platform independence, robust security and high scalability, has stood out as a prominent choice for a standardized IIoT communication protocol; and, given its importance in the field, Weintek continues to develop and add OPC UA related feature support.
From EasyBuilder Pro v6.04.02 onwards, OPC UA Historical Data Access (HDA) feature has been added, allowing OPC UA clients to access historical data in addition to real-time updates.
With OPC UA HDA providing a unified standard for accessing historical data, differences in data format and access protocols among devices will no longer be an issue. The OPC UA HDA feature is a helpful asset that will facilitate your system integration tasks.
