Simplied management for large volumes of data
With mapp Database, B&R has made it possible to archive data directly from the field level to database, regardless of whether the database is located on site or in the cloud. This is said to simplify the management of large volumes of data.
Manufacturing machinery generates huge volumes of data, which must then be visualised, archived or passed on to higher-level systems. With mapp Database it is possible to send data directly from the controller to databases, where it can be processed or archived.
Commonly used database functions, such as stored procedures, allow KPIs to be generated as needed, resulting in a cockpit for optimising manufacturing processes.
mapp Database can be connected to any mapp component that saves or reads data. Instead of generating individual files for alarm lists, process values and audit events, all data is sent automatically, via mapp Links, to a database where it can be more easily managed.
