One of the most common questions eLynx sales representatives get asked is, “How easy is it to move my data where I need it?” Fortunately, the eLynx Data Historian can easily consume and transfer data from the most used SCADA systems in energy. The eLynx Data Historian is a time series database that can be leveraged in addition to your existing SCADA system.
The eLynx Data Historian has the capability to consolidate data from all existing SCADA systems within your operations. Connect data from the Data Historian to other operating systems by using the eLynx API.
The cloud-based platform allows operators to leverage the eLynx system without having to replace your existing SCADA system. With all your data in the cloud, you can achieve machine learning initiatives and construct meaningful data visualizations.
Transferring SCADA data into the eLynx Data Historian is a quick and easy task. Data collection should not be a frustrating task. Using the eLynx Historian software, you can effortlessly pull data together from different software systems and provide secure and efficient data access to your entire operations.
To give operators a complete view of operational data, all systems data needs to be incorporated. In energy, operators often use multiple SCADA systems due to mergers and acquisitions, which can cause issues for operators when they need to transfer data from each SCADA system. The eLynx Data Historian provides a solution to this problem by providing secure access to the data as well as reporting and visualization tools.
The eLynx Data Historian handles the burden of maintaining data integrations for each SCADA system and allows operators to standardize data at a corporate level. The eLynx Data Historian can consolidate data from each of your existing SCADA systems.
Data can be transferred into the eLynx Data Historian through multiple methods. With large batches of data, operators can leverage their favorite tools and software systems by integrating data via the eLynx API.
The eLynx API has the capability to connect to most public and third-party APIs. This eliminates the need to build custom data integrations. Utilize your favorite native connection tools like Spotfire and Tableau to discover meaningful data insights.
Without having to write any code, you can leverage the eLynx API by using the Excel add-in. With the Excel add-in, you can create custom reports directly in Excel using your SCADA data. Imagine the time your engineers will save when creating daily and weekly reports.
Within the eLynx application, users may find the Production Dashboard, a reporting visualization tool, to be especially helpful since it displays SCADA data as well as other data. Moreover, the Production Dashboard can provide team members with key context needed to pinpoint, prioritize, and remedy operational problems quickly.
The eLynx Production Dashboard displays production data, field data capture data, field notes, downtime codes, and tank haul run tickets. Furthermore, the dashboard is supplemented with third party data, such as pipeline sales volumes.
The onboarding process for new and third-party users is simple. Administrators can decide what restrictions to place on each user, control what each user can do and see within the eLynx solution, and even restrict access to users for certain devices in the field. Accidents happen, and this process protects the system from accidental changes.
eLynx allows administrators to have controls for the purposes of security without creating production-delaying data silos. All users, not just administrators, have the capability to build reports, views, and image views. This helps operators avoid data bottlenecks that restrain productivity.
Waiting on permission from an administrator to build custom views or reports can delay important progress. Data-driven tasks can be performed without waiting on approvals.
