Users of PI and FastGate will be able to integrate utility network facility mapping and equipment data with real-time and historical SCADA data. For example, FastGate functionality will enable PI-ProcessBook to display maps of electrical distribution networks and equipment that originate from GIS, CAD and other source systems, and tie in power flow and status information from the PI database. FastGate adds significantly to the power of ProcessBook, by providing network operations, engineering and personnel from other departments with access to mapping and GIS information previously separated from the real-time network status and performance data. For the first time, any graphics, real-time source, and network model information can be integrated at the desktop to enhance utility operations, extend the life of key assets and help prevent certain customer outages.
