Lisle, Ill.-based SmartSignal Corp., a provider of predictive analytics for equipment health in the power generation and oil and gas industries, has introduced the SmartSignal xConnector.
xConnector provides a comprehensive, bi-directional link between the PI System and SmartSignal EPI Center predictive-analytics software. This link makes it possible for PI users worldwide to access SmartSignal directly in their PI tools.
Using this link, PI users now can detect and diagnose problems across all critical rotating and non-rotating equipment and graphically visualize and analyze them directly in PI – all in time to take action and avert expensive unplanned outages and repairs, according to the company.
‘Our customers detect minor, major and sometimes even catastrophic failures before they happen using SmartSignal's predictive solution,’ says Jim Gagnard, CEO of SmartSignal.
xConnector is the culmination of a long-term partnership of SmartSignal and OSIsoft. OSIsoft provides the data infrastructure, and SmartSignal provides the intelligence to analyze the data and detect and diagnose impending problems. SmartSignal analyzes, in real time, all the PI sensor data.
