Trend real-time and historical data

With one click of the mouse button, you will start visually trending your real-time OPC data. Designed for reliable 24 X 7 operation, the OPC trend enables operators to visualize their real-time data, engineers to analyze historical data and automation personnel to quickly troubleshoot problems. There is no need for multiple OPC client-side tools; with OPC Expert, you get all the features you need in one application.

Powerful engineering functions enable process and automation engineers to focus their attention on the true problems:

Achieve real-time and historical data trending by connecting to any OPC DA server or by OPC HDA to any process historian such as OSIsoft PI, AspenTech InfoPlus.21, Honeywell PHD, Microsoft SQL (MS SQL), Wonderware InSQL, Yokogawa ExaQuantum, etc.
Trend multiple items together and move all the data simultaneously to enable users to find troublesome time periods and operations that are out of the ordinary.
Trend calculated (virtual) items available in the OPC viewer window. Create complex calculations using multiple physical measurements, and trend the results in a single calculated (virtual) item.
Data cursor informs the precise value of each data item on each trend.
Zoom into the most important data. Animated zooming is both visually appealing and functional, as it enables users to follow the area being focused. Users can also zoom out of specific areas to get a better view of the entire timeline. This enables users to determine the cause of process events.
Data panning enables users to move data views using the mouse or even by specifying start and end times manually.
Built-in redundancy enables the OPC trend to switch between primary and standby OPC servers seamlessly.
Save current view and restore automatically to enable operators to quickly and automatically begin trending after a reboot.
No installation is required to get the OPC trend capabilities immediately on any computer. OPC Expert does not require installation, does not change Windows Registry and is free to download thus making it safe to use on any computer. Download OPC Expert and use the OPC Trend immediately.
