PI Event Frames Generator BETA Now Available!

Blog Post created by tbrown Employee on Jul 19, 2012

To all vCampus members and PI Event Frames fans,


We are pleased to announce the immediate availability of the PI Event Frames Generator BETA! 




PI Event Frames Generator (PIEFGen) can be configured to automatically create events (event frames) from trigger tags in the PI Server.  PIEFGen:



  • generates event frames from trigger tags in the PI Server
  • leverages event frame templates
  • writes to event frame attributes
  • handles complex hierarchical events like batches
  • provides a way to migrate existing PI BaGen configurations forward to the new tool to generate events in PI Event Frames



Here's a screen shot of some event frames I created with PI Event Frames Generator:








Additionally, there is a new PI Event Frame Configuration Utility BETA to use in conjunction with PIEFGen, shown below. 








We are looking for some feedback around the provided feature set, enhancement requests, feedback on the new configuration utility, and feedback on migration of existing PI Batch Generated (PI BaGen) configurations to PIEFGen.  Hopefully you're interested and can provide some feedback to our team within the next 3 to 4 weeks.




For a full list of system requirements, see the Release Notes.


Here is a link to the Beta User Manual.




If you're interested in trying out the new PI Event Frames Generator BETA or if you have any questions about it, please send a request tobetabatchinterfaces@osisoft.com and then we can provide you access to the download via the OSIsoft Tech Support site.




Feel free to provide us feedback at betabatchinterfaces@osisoft.com or in the Event Frames Discussion Hall.
