Data Acquisition

With over 30 years’ experience in data acquisition, and hundreds of drivers to choose from, CimWay®, the data acquisition layer in the PcVue Solutions’ portfolio  is the foundation of our real-time data infrastructure.

Data acquisition is the general term used for the collection of data from equipment. PLC’s, PAC’s, RTU’s, industrial I/O, Controllers, measurement units and meters, fan controllers, protection relays… all fall into this category. In fact just about any device that measures or controls anything in the real world. The data acquisition is done using communication drivers. PcVue implements thousands of communication drivers which can be split into the following categories:

1. Industry and machine builders – Those that originated in the PLC world. For example Modbus TCP/IP
2. Building Management Systems – LonWorks ,BACnet
3. Power System Automation - IEC 60870-5-104, IEC 61850 with KEMA Certification & IEC 61400-25, DNP3
4. Water treatment & distribution - A telemetry interface that offers a large range of drivers commonly used
5. IT - SNMP
6. Customized driver - A Software Development Kit for drivers is available for you to develop your own driver

The data acquisition could be disparate and coming from multiple vendors’ devices. PcVue is able to manage a large range of protocols:  from proprietary buses and legacy serial protocols to the latest OPC and TCP/IP standards.
In our SCADA solution drivers development are ongoing and new drivers are added all the time.
