This application collects one minute New Zealand electricity generation, load & HVDC
MW information Transpower subsidiary EMS (Energy Market Services).

The results are put into PI tags and made available to PI applications such as
Processbook, Datalink, RtWebparts, OLEDB, etc. The MW information is historised
along with your existing PI tags allowing all users to access the information.

The application is scalable in that the PI administrator can configure as many or as little
nodes as required.

You must have an EM6 account with EMS to get access to the web services.

This application is also available as an OPC server . This makes power prices available to OPC compatible SCADA systems.


The Plant2TXT messaging application from Dimension Software provides current PI data via txt message on demand, anytime, anywhere.

Weather you are on your daily commute, at a meeting, conference, overseas or out and about in the plant you have access to up to the minute PI data direct to your mobile.

The application is simple to configure using a Processbook display. Here you define the keyword and the matching response.  The response is made up using any number of PI tags under the SMS limit of 160 characters.

For example you may want a plant operational overview. You define a simple keyword such as kpi and text that word to the designated phone number.

Within seconds, a response message that you previously configured is sent as a reply direct to your mobile.

The application comes with a dedicated GSM modem and has its own phone number.

It has flexible architectural options and requires PI-ACE from OSIsoft.

The system works on any mobile phone and does not need to be a Smartphone, Blackberry or Windows Mobile.
