PI System™ Interface Implementation


The primary objective is to install and configure a new PI Interface for an existing Data Archive. The installation is performed on-site by a qualified engineer accredited by OSISoft® as a PI System Infrastructure and Installation Specialist.

The scope of this package is limited to a single PI Interface installed in an Acquisition Node (API Node).

Other Implementation Services


PIPER implements a new installation of the PI System™ infrastructure, if you already have this service, you may also be interested in the implementation of the interface, managing your infrastructure or auditing the PI System™.

The audit consists of reviewing the installation, configuration and use of PI System™ and its components, ending with the delivery of an audit report.

Implementation Schedule


The implementation dates will be mutually agreed after the formal acceptance of the service. The implementation process, from the request until its completion, normally takes 2 to 4 weeks.

Week 1 and 2 - Communication of prerequisites, ordering of OSIsoft software, acquisition node hardware, and operating systems, and control system-specific hardware and software. Confirmation of installation dates with PIPER.

Week 2 and 3 - Receive and prepare hardware and software required for the PI Interface installation.

Week 4 - On-site installation by PIPER.
