Thanks to SIMATIC PCS 7 Process Historian – our highly efficient archive and reporting system – you gain valuable information from the supposedly unconnected historical and ongoing process data of your plant.

The SIMATIC PCS 7 Process Historian provides you with high-performance long-term archiving that incorporates itself perfectly into the control system. After all, process data, tags, alarms and batch data from SIMATIC BATCH can be centrally archived in realtime – without any additional engineering effort.

Process Historian is scaleable at will, i.e. data of OS single stations and of OS servers from a PCS 7 project or multi-projects can be detected and saved. No restriction is placed on the number of single stations, servers or server pairs that can be archived. Via a web interface, the information server makes available the archived data as shift, daily, weekly or monthly logs.
