The new ProSoft PLX51 connector provides access to the history data in PLX51 devices. The devices can be installed on-premise or remote locations, in the case of the latter, the ProSoft Connect is used. The history data is consolidated in a database for reports and dashboards.

XLReporter is built on the Microsoft Open Office standard and provides the same “look and feel” of Microsoft Excel, a familiar environment of cell formulas, statistics, formatting, sorting, filtering, images and charts. It also provides features like analytics tailored to specific industries, automated reports, distribution e.g., email and on-demand reports from web browsers.

“Microsoft Excel is indisputably one of the most widely used applications. XLReporter propels users to ‘Go Beyond Excel’ and take the best of worksheet functionality and deliver it to a web browser,” explained Peter Kaprielian, CTO of SyTech. “This release provides more connectivity to our partners’ devices and software which is the first step in analyzing data”.

In industries that require ISA18.2 Alarm Management, XLReporter provides timely measurements of the key performance indicators as described in the Monitoring and Assessment stage of the alarm life cycle. This release takes the KPIs to a new level with custom filters on position, module and attribute. The KPIs can also be exported to an external database for long-term tracking of improvements.
