Viewport and OSIsoft PI connector

OSIsoft PI integration

Viewport utilizes the retrieved data from OSIsoft PI by connecting and adding value to the consolidated real-time data and deploying it further. Once a single point of access is confirmed, the data is made easily accessible through Viewport web server, only requiring a browser. With Viewport in place, connected data will be implemented in a uniform structure, effectively bringing multiple sources to one.

The integration of Viewport and the OSIsoft PI system can significantly improve the efficiency of a facility for many reasons. With Viewport operations, P&IDs can be viewed from multiple devices, requiring minimal training. Additional advantages include the Vertex engine intelligence as well as the ability to observe historic trends and current values from OSIsoft PI.

The use of an OSIsoft PI connector eases overall real-time data accessibility, which is presented in drawings and documents inside Viewport. Real-time data inside P&ID consists of clear information providing end-users with many advantages, such as increased situational awareness and unprecedented insight.

Data is retrieved from OSIsoft PI on demand via a custom web service by Viewport. The PI Asset Framework then connects to the Viewport web service, locating the P&ID tags to the relevant PI tags.

Data is generally retrieved on-demand and in real-time. However, the mapping of the Asset Framework is kept up to date through periodic maintenance. This can also be completed by developing an automated importer. Tooling is available for the necessary mapping of P&ID tags to the PI tags. Further customizations are also made through server details such as the hostname or accounts.
