MathWorks has enhanced its OPC Toolbox with an integrated support for the OPC Foundation Historical Data Access (HDA) standard. Geared for customers in the power and utilities, chemical, and oil and gas industries, MATLAB users can now access and visualize historical process data from an OPC HDA server.

Data acquisition platforms are critical tools for reliably gathering, archiving and serving enterprise data. To perform advanced analyzes and extract important information from the massive volumes of process data that is captured requires a powerful analytical engine. With the OPC HDA access in OPC Toolbox, process specialists can more efficiently apply MATLAB data visualization, data analysis and numeric computation capabilities to historical OPC data. They can also automate common analysis tasks, generate reports, create customized data analysis GUIs, or integrate these analytics back into their process historian.

"The process industries are faced with the challenge of quickly analyzing the volumes of data they have collected and perform root cause analysis to continually improve operations," said Graham Dudgeon, energy production industry marketing manager, MathWorks. "By providing easier access to this data within MATLAB environment, we are enabling process engineers to perform more advanced analyzes, such as root cause analysis that can lead to significant process improvements and cost savings."
