Release Announcement
PI Interface for GE HABConnect is released
Alert: (October 19, 2017) A new version ( has been posted that resolves this issue.
Alert: (August 17, 2017) OSIsoft was made aware of potential issues during installation of the interface where the PI API components were not installed properly. While we investigate the nature of the issue and identify a resolution, downloads of this interface are disabled until further notice. We apologize for the inconvenience..

This interface was previously called the PI Interface for ESCA HABConnect. OSIsoft has changed the name to reflect General Electric's acquisition of Alstom's (formerly ESCA's) power and grid business, but the interface itself remains the same, apart from the enhancement and bug fixes described below. In particular, it remains compatible with all versions of HABConnect from ESCA, Areva, and Alstom that might have been used with previous versions of the interface.



  • Reduced time required to start the interface - when querying large tables.

Bug Fixes

  • The interface’s special handling of the ExcMax point attribute now works correctly when using site-level failover.
  • Now all correctly configured points receive an initial update and only misconfigured points receive the "Configure" digital state.


  • Please see the interface release notes for more details on enhancements and quality improvements included with this release.
  • Please see the user guide for more information about this interface.
