What Are Your Data Barriers?

Professionals real-time and historical access to sensor and machine data. Overly complex databases and IT roadblocks can get in the way. You need a simple, yet powerful, process data solution so you can succeed.

At INS3, we see three major barriers that companies face when trying to put value on the process data they have collected.

Too Much Data to Manage

Expensive Software

Complicated Analytical Tools

INS3 & Canary Labs break down these Barriers.

Canary Labs Data Analytics

Canary’s Data Analytics offers 4 individual tools, all included in the Historian installation.

Asset Models

Asset Models are created by the user to define templates that contain groups of individual data points or tags. This is very important to reduce the amount of work for larger Enterprise systems. As new tags and assets can be automatically identified as they come online and be grouped into the correct Asset Model.

Events

The events tool monitors previously defined assets. These assets can be monitored and tracked for unusual activity during the complete process and measured against defined limits. The events are then logged in the Canary Database for future analytics. These events can also be configured as Alarms to prompt a notification via text, email or an actual phone call if a value is not within its defined limits.

Axiom

The HTML visualization piece to bring all your Event, Asset, and Tag data to a powerful and easy to use viewable platform. Axiom offers many tools for visualization such as Trending Charts, Tables, Guages, Iframes, C# scripting, Full multi-screen HMI’s can be created with very little training. Dashboard comparison across multiple Asset Models is also incorporated within Axiom.

Excel Add-In

The ability to export Chart CSV data directly from Axiom is an available feature but Canary has also included a very powerful Excel Add-in tool. This Add-in tool allows direct access to data in the Historian. Tag names, tag data, aggregate data as well as events or recorded anomalies are available to access with commonly know software such as Excel.
