- HistoryController Item ... read moreThe HistoryController allows for a complete automated history data transport chain from one end (Historian) to another (Historian). It schedules history transport on a recurring, near-time basis and has also provisions to concentrate historical data from multiple, different sources into the destination. Sources supported are OSIsoft PI, AspenTech IP.21 and any other OPC DA/HDA compliant Historian system.
- HistorySink Item ... read moreThe HistorySinkItem allows to sink historical (time-series) data either into an OSIsoft PI system or to the file system of the operating system.
- HistoryExporter Item ... read moreThe HistoryExporter allows to export historical data, either aggregated (any of the OPC Unified Architecture standard aggregates) or as raw series. The object can manage any number of source objects and any depth of history, still resulting in one single file. The exported data contains rich context information in the respective file headers.
- KPITable object ... read moreThe KPITable object is a new KPI model object that retrieves data from inmation and displays as a table on the Visual KPI web interface. On request from Visual KPI, the object executes a custom Lua script to retrieve data and return a JSON table with a specific schema for display. See the KPITable Hands On tutorial for more information.
- New inmation.moveobject() Lua function ... read moreThis new inmation Lua library function supports the above mentioned “drag & drop” functionality through the Lua interface. Objects in any model can now be moved to a new location using the inmation.moveobject() function by providing the path of the object to be moved and the path of the parent for its new location.

The configuration details can then be transfered to the new config file and Web API object to reconfigure the Web API after updating. More details can be found here
Configuration Changes when updating to Visual KPI v5.53.3 and above
- system:inmation 1.34 is fully compatible with Visual KPI v5.53.3, however some configuration changes need to be made manually in Visual KPI Server Manager. ... read morePlease visit here for information on how to correctly configure Visual KPI Server Manager v5.53.3 after upgrade.
New in 1.34.1
- ESI Support ... read moreESI (Enhanced Script Infrastructure) is a GitHub-based collaboration platform between inmation, system integrators, educational institutes and end customers. It allows for Lua code collaboration between multiple parties. In this release, the first eight ESI libraries have been merged with the server code base. A big thank you, to all involved contributors!
- Console Display ... read moreThe new Console Display in DataStudio allows for faster testing of Lua scripts against an inmation Core object. It has several features addressing the typical needs of users developing custom applications to run within system:inmation. The code being executed does not need to be embedded in an existing object, which makes testing much faster. Another handy feature is the Console Display supports drag & drop operations in order to automatically generate object modification code (such as create, upsert etc.).
- PI-Bridge Package (OSI PI SDK Support) ... read moreThe PI-Bridge package is introduced. It covers all features of the PI SDK and the PI AF SDK. This allows system:inmation to access tag configuration, real-time data, historical data, event frames, batch records as well as the Asset Framework configuration. The package can be installed on any Connector host and will be automatically distributed with the next release.
- History Transporter Class ... read moreThe History transporter allows massive amounts of historical data to be fetched from external systems such as OPC HDA servers, OSI PI and Aspentech IP.21. The PI-System is now natively supported by the PI-Bridge package as one option in the class. History Transporter comes with different operation modes, safe scheduling and persistent state, which allows the system to automatically continue a large transaction even after component restart (or update). The class has broad diagnostic capabilities, so that users are informed about the details of the background process at all times.
- SchedulerItem Class ... read moreThis new class in inmation can be used in all models and components. It has a dynamic property which raises an edge when a certain time event occurs. SchedulerItem objects can interact with ActionItems or HistoryTransporters and the like, in order to execute certain tasks at very exact time boundaries. The scheduling options are comparable to the option with recurring meetings in MS Outlook but broken down to the “By Second” level. A typical usage would be the triggering of shift reports or other summary reports.
Improved in 1.34.1
- Extensive Additions to inmation Performance Counters ... read moreOver 70 new Performance Counters have been added to the system in order to even enhance self and health-monitoring of the entire system.
- Redundant Item ... read moreHistory calls on redundant items now merge the history from all linked items and return the history using the same logic as for real-time data. For this reason redundant items no longer store their own history.
- Object State ... read moreinmation Objects, residing in the various service components, now better report on their state in DataStudio. An open circle indicates a state, which has not yet been confirmed by the inmation Core.
- Extended Filter Options with the OPC UA Server ... read moreThe individual inmation OPC UA Server instance can now be restricted to only expose certain parts of the object model.
- Siemens PLC S7-300/400 Datasource ... read moreThe Datasource class has several improvements to the Siemens S7 interface. There is now support for reading time and date tags of S7-300/400 and S7-1500 PLCs and writing to S7-300/400 PLC tags. Writing arrays will be supported in an upcoming release.
- Script Editor improved debug window ... read moreThe script editor now has an improved debug panel allowing the user to scroll through large output values (such as JSON documents) using the zoom window. Other small improvents for inspection convenience have also been made.
- Image system ... read moreThe image subsystem has been further improved for performance and robustness.
- SQL Catalog ... read moreThe SQL Catalog has been improved for performance. The inmation.SQLCatalog library has been improved in order to support queries on Custom Attributes.
