Data Acquisition & Telemetry


Generation of reports made simple and portable

April 2002 Data Acquisition & Telemetry

Easy and uncomplicated in its use, OPUS is designed to share information across the intranet or Internet, allowing any person familiar with Microsoft standard Office software to generate meaningful reports. This makes it suitable for gathering information from the very diverse automation and information technologies that manage the process control industry - this is of special relevance to those who have experienced drawing up a simple report and have found it more complex and problematic than the process on their plant.

OPUS is aimed at eliminating the days when one had to call in the IT department every time one wanted to access data for simple pie and bar graphs. It is now no longer necessary to call in the professionals to 'configure the system' or 'set parameters', and IT departments will save valuable time wasted by unnecessary call outs and unwanted reports in vague formats and layouts.

Those feeling it is time to take control of their environment and their business, and present their data in a professional format are encouraged to take a look at the new report generator and web-based business intelligence tool from OPUS. Comparable to any report generator in the field in most respects and said to be streets ahead in others, OPUS is designed to gives the user the edge in business intelligence, information gathering and collation.

Despite its apparent simplicity OPUS is powerful and scaleable, and information can easily be accessed simultaneously from a variety of standard data sources including standard databases - such as Access and SQL Server - OPC (Object Linking and Embedding for Process Control), scada (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition), XML and Excel. If these do not satisfy the requirements or the business environments are unfamiliar, the object oriented OPUS framework allows the user to build their own data sources and simply 'plug' them into their own OPUS environment.

Lookup tables generate automatically, giving previews of the available data in the source being interrogated. This, along with drag 'n drop capabilities, makes it a simple matter to draw up even complex reports and information, making it well suited to unusual situations such as auditing and forensics.

OPUS, with familiar Windows functionality, is fast to learn and easy to use for all members of an organisation.
