Cross-process data handling
The Delphin Data Center is the heart of the measurement data management system. It merges, synchronises and intelligently pre-processes the data, and uses data compression to optimise storage and performance. Software channels provide extensive functions for calculating and analysing measurement data. The Delphin Data Center also offers user and alarm management across systems. Automated measurement data export is also possible, e.g. into ASCII or CSV formats.
Data sources can vary widely at the field level but connecting data to the Delphin Data Center is easy. It doesn’t matter whether the machine and process data is being acquired with Delphin or other manufacturer devices, or whether the measurement data sources are connected via protocols such as Modbus or OPC.
Data visualisation and analysis is possible locally and worldwide using ProfiSignal and ProfiSignal Web. For worldwide access, ProfiSignal Web is ideal, since it requires no local software installation on a PC. For both software systems, the Delphin Data Center provides current and historical measurement data instantly and without interruption. Permanent data storage, e.g. on a NAS drive, can also be initiated by the Delphin Data Center. Alerts can be forwarded to a control centre and, in the event of an alarm, automatic emails and textmessages can be sent.
A particularly high level of data security is achieved when Delphin data loggers and data acquisition systems are used in operations. The majority of our measuring and testing devices are equipped with robust industrial data storage capabilities to guarantee process-based storage of any measurement data. A scheduler integrated in the DDC enables automated and intelligent data access and centralised archiving of all measurement data. Even in the event of malfunctions or network interruptions, smooth data acquisition and data consistency are guaranteed.
