Enterprise performance, Data Logger Price.
Plant historians have always been costly. A typical purchase includes a server, the operating system, Microsoft SQL with Cals, the historian, client tools and historian 'tags'. If you want the historian to sync up with a central historian, that's typically an adder as well, bringing your "starter" system to a total somewhere north of $25K, NOT including services (which are typically required). The hBOX, on the other hand, starts at under $5K and INCLUDES syncing between hBOX units. Even better, the hBOX comes pre-configured, all you have to do is start loading tags.
Load Tested to over 250,000 Updates/Sec.
Thanks to a special edition of Canary Lab's enterprise class historian system and a dedicated processing platform, the hBOX can handle just about any data logging needs you may have. For more details, see the sidebar.
Network Outage Proof. Unlimited Scalability.
hBOX appliances have the unique ability to connect and synchronize with a designated master hBOX, allowing you to scale the system to meet virtually any scenario. Should you lose your network connection, remote hBOX's will automatically sync all data when the network becomes available again, and will load it sequentially, just as if no network problems ever occurred.
Connectivity to All.
All flavors of OPC, ODBC, and a special edition Kepware OPC server with all Kepware drivers available allows the hBOX to connect with virtually any automation device, SCADA system or database on the market.
Tough enough for any environment.
NEMA 4X rating, -40 to +60 degrees Celsius operating temperature range and high vibration tolerance mean you can put the hBOX anywhere.
30 Minute Setup.
Plug in the hBOX, connect it to your process network, tell it what devices to talk to and how frequently. Done. No software to install, no databases to configure. Guaranteed 30 minutes or less from the time you apply power to the time you are logging data, simply follow the quick start guide.
