IPC harnesses the power of the Internet

12 May 2014

GE Intelligent Platforms have introduced a new solution that utilises the potential of the Industrial Internet to connect machines and turn raw data into actionable information.

An integrated data collection and analytics appliance, Proficy Historian IPC is said to deliver quick time-to-value for collecting real-time production and process information by simplifying purchase and installation. 

The IPC platform enables numerous data collection tags on a rugged form factor small enough to install with machine controls in harsh environments. Proficy Historian’s compression algorithms also allow for larger volumes of data to be stored on the IPC’s hard drive, without sacrificing data integrity. 

Proficy Historian IPC is the first of a new breed of combined hardware and software solutions from GE Intelligent Platforms, designed to pave the way to leading-edge performance and the Industrial Internet. The solution integrates a set of proven products – the PACSystems RXi XP, the latest of GE Intelligent Platforms high performance IPCs, and Proficy Historian 5.5 – into a purpose-built unit. 

“We understand that to get higher efficiency using data from a connected machine, the interface must be easy to implement and use,” said Flor Rivas, product manager for GE Intelligent Platforms. “With Proficy Historian IPC we have made it simple to step into the future of industrial automation by combining our data Historian software with an industrial grade computer. This solution simplifies purchase, speeds implementation, and enables data collection from thousands of inputs on a rugged platform small enough to install at the machine itself.”
