    PI System Connections Intro
  • Four different ways to connect to the PI Server:

    • PI Adapters -- PI Adapters are the latest data collection technology that enables new industrial IoT data patterns and sends data to an on-premises PI Server or up to OSIsoft Cloud Services. They are supported on both Linux and Windows operating systems and can be deployed on rugged devices to monitor remote assets.

    • PI Connectors -- Developed with a sharp focus on security, performance and manageability, this growing portfolio of products is the fastest and easiest way to connect to new data sources. PI Connectors can intelligently scan a data source and begin sending data to the PI System with minimal configuration.
