The Dream Report Logger studio enables Dream Report to take data from any Smart Device; RTU, PLC, IOT Device, etc., and also more complex systems such as HMI/SCADA Systems, DCS Systems, MES applications and more, and then log that data to any standard database. This resulting database can then be used by Dream Report for Reports and Dashboards.
Dream Report integrates a robust communication application to collect data and alarms from multiple real-time and historian sources. It uses OPC, OLE and ODBC standards to connect and collect Data from different suppliers. In addition, Dream Report offers a wide range of custom drivers to support proprietary data interfaces. These Drivers can be used in any combination to extract data from field sources, to be used in Snapshot Reports and Dashboards, used as Triggers for Dream Report actions, and as a source for Dream Report Logging functions.
DREAM REPORT DATA LOGGING
Most of the time, data already exists in repositories that Dream Report will access. If not, Dream Report can access and log your data for subsequent analysis.
LOGGING CAN BE DONE:
• ON CHANGE
• ON EVENT
• ON TIME
• ON SPECIFIC VALUE CHANGE
• ON ABSOLUTE TIME
• ENABLED OR DISABLED BY PROCESS CONDITIONS
Larger applications will warrant a fully functional Historian that delivers data compression and retrieval analytics. But many smaller applications will benefit from the Data Logger functionality that is delivered with Dream Report. In addition to logging field data, the Dream Report Data Logger can also log Dream Report statistics.
