OSIsoft is pleased to announce the official release of the PI Connector Relay. PI Connectors are OSIsoft’s newest technology, similar to PI Interfaces that collect data from sensors and control systems. They are designed to require minimal configuration and simplify the collection of data by intuitively scanning for a specific device protocol, collecting PI Points, and automatically creating a PI Asset Framework (AF) model for your asset.
The PI Connector Relay is an individual component that relays the data coming from a connector that is running on a Windows/Linux operating system to a PI System. The connector sends a generalized representation of the assets and real time measurements that it collects from the data sources to the PI Connector Relay. The PI Connector Relay creates elements, event frames in PI AF servers and PI Points in the PI Data Archive. The relay is capable of sending data that is coming from the connectors to multiple PI Systems including collectives.
Specific PI Connectors require PI Data Collection Manager and PI Connector Relay version 2 or later. To see if your connector requires PI Connector Relay, refer to the software and hardware requirements section of your connector user guide.
