RTI Connect is a full-featured, open-source, time-series database (historian) that employs RTI Server as the communications hub for operational technology (OT) and Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) data from any source. RTI Connect provides a fully scalable, cost-effective, field-proven solution that can be deployed on premise or in a public or private cloud. RTI Connect is integrated fully with the RTI Platform.
With RTI Connect, you can collect data from virtually any utility device or system using a wide array of protocols, including ICCP, Modbus, DNP3, OPC, IEC 61850 and many more. RTI Connect allows you to collect accurate time-series data and consistently recreate that data. Should you require integrations with proprietary historians such as OSIsoft PI, Wonderware and others, we have connectors to these systems as well.
RTI Connect offers the ability to retrieve historical, time series data and efficiently store that data with compression algorithms. As grid edge technologies proliferate and the volume of OT data grows exponentially, the complexity of managing these rules and modifications will increase in kind. RTI Connect simplifies the management of generated data by enabling data point specification, retaining data and providing time resolution policies to be managed directly from RTI batch files.
InfluxDB offers a simplified, open application programming interface (API) to move you beyond visualization screens and human machine interfaces (HMIs) provided by original equipment manufacturer (OEM) suppliers and third-party developers. LiveData Utilities is here to help you integrate OT systems such as EMS, OMS, ADMS and other grid control systems to interact with historical data seamlessly. This enables smart grid applications and operators to act upon real-time and relevant information to manage the grid more effectively. Our open API establishes a rich environment for you to interface with big data tools for deeper historical analysis and richer predictive modeling.
Build Real-Time Operational Intelligence
RTI Connect provides the data needed for analytics and business intelligence. Simplify the process of gathering operational data for to determine various system averages, efficiencies and losses as well as strategies for improvements, procurement and rate case filings. Employ analytics tools such as open-source Grafana Labs or proprietary Tableau with InfluxDB to deliver real-time, customized visual analytics. In addition, combine InfluxDB with LiveData RTI GAM to enable operations management and control room operators to visualize the current state of generation assets as well as time-series data in a single solution.
When RTI Connect is integrated into RTI Platform Generation Asset Manager (RTI GAM), the resulting application provides operations management and control room operators a single application that they can use visualize the current state of generation assets as well as time-series data. RTI GAM is a generation asset management tool that helps utilities track and understand grid activity and demand drivers. RTI GAM is coupled to our industry leading RTI Platform real-time solution.
