GE Data Collector for Wonderware® Data

The GE Data Collector for Schneider Electric Software’s Wonderware ® Historian gathers data samples from a Wonderware Historian 2014 R2 Server application and stores the corresponding data entries in the Historian Server.

Note: Wonderware is a registered trademark of Schneider Electric Software.

This collector supports collecting of analog, digital and string types of data from the Wonderware Historian Server. This collector supports a distributed model, where the Wonderware Historian Server, the Historian Data Collector, and GE Historian software are installed on different machines. Typically, however, the collector is installed on the same computer as the Wonderware Data Archiver and sends data to a remote GE Historian server.

The GE Data Collector for Wonderware uses unsolicited collection, whereby changes to the Wonderware tags are detected, and are forwarded to the Historian server. Raw samples from the Historian Data Collector for Wonderware are duplicated into the GE Historian data archive.

One GE Data Collector for Wonderware can collect data from a single Wonderware Historian server. To collect from multiple Wonderware Historian servers to an Historian archiver, you must install multiple collectors.

Note: The ODBC Driver for the SQL Server is required for the Historian Data Collector for Wonderware installation; however, the ODBC Driver for SQL does not ship with Historian. If the ODBC Driver for SQL is not installed, the Historian Data Collector for Wonderware will not connect to the Wonderware server. If you install the Historian Data Collector for Wonderware on a machine that does not contain the Wonderware server, be sure to install the ODBC Driver for SQL on the machine with the Historian Data Collector for Wonderware.
