Cogent DataHub® Version 9.1

What’s new in DataHub version 9.1

Now you can write your data to leading time-series historical databases from InfluxData, Amazon, and AVEVA. And there’s a powerful new way to create email, SMS, social media and OPC A&E alarms and notifications based on DataHub point changes.

External Historians

Connect the DataHub to any of these real-time, flat-file historians:

  • InfluxDB: a popular open source time series database, that comes with Chronograf and Grafana for creating dashboards and doing analysis.
  • InfluxDB Cloud: a time series database as a service.
  • Amazon Kinesis: ingests and stores data streams for processing in AWS.
  • AVEVA Insight: cloud-based analysis for industrial data
  • AVEVA Historian: a plant-scale industrial historian (formerly Wonderware Historian)

Store your data in a compact, easily accessible format.  Analyze or display your data using any of the analytical, reporting, or graphing tools available to the historian you are connecting to, as well as DataHub WebView and OPC UA HDA clients.

Alarms and Notifications

Configure alarms and notifications based on data changes, and send them out by email, SMS, or social media applications. You can define templates for different states and conditions, bind them to data, send messages, and run custom scripts.

OPC Alarm Generator

Create, aggregate and send OPC Alarms and Events, as the DataHub is now a full-featured OPC alarm generator. Choose either OPC A&E (Alarms and Events), OPC A&C (Alarms and Conditions) or both.

OPC A&E to OPC UA A&C conversion

Convert OPC A&E to OPC UA A&C. Future-proof your system by connecting legacy software to modern OPC UA A&C clients.

Send notifications based on OPC events

Connect to third-party OPC A&E or A&C servers to generate email, SMS and Social media messages when events occur in your existing control system.

Tunnelling Historical Data

Combining InfluxDB with DataHub’s Tunneller lets you send historical data across a network, even via proxy servers and DMZs. Built-in store-and-forwarding ensures no data losses during network irregularities.  No VPNs, no open Inbound firewall ports.

Importing Configuration

Do you have a large number of data points to configure? Now instead of adding points one by one you can import configuration in bulk from a CSV file. Supported protocols include OPC UA, OPC DA, Bridging, MQTT Client, Modbus, and Historian.

Store and Forwarding for Cloud Connections

Connections to Amazon Kinesis, Azure IoT Hub, Amazon IoT Core, Google IoT, and other MQTT brokers now include built-in store-and-forward using the InfluxDB historian. Local data storage ensures no data losses during network irregularities. You gain the reliability of store-and-forward and local historical data visibility with a single configuration.

WebView Enhancements

WebView now includes a file browser accessible via WebView.

Desktop WebView now includes Undo/Redo feature.
