My company produces high resistant valves used in ore refining. We are trying to find a better way of working with our clients that use the PI System. In the past, we have received data from their ore refining processes through .xlsx files. We then parsed the data using excel in order to process the data in Matlab. This method has proven to be rather cumbersome and are in need of a better method.
We would like to have data from our client's site in a .mat file so we can process the data in Matlab. Is there an effective way for the PI Server to send .mat files? I have looked through PI Developers Club White Paper "Using the PI-to-Matlab Utility" but we do not have access to the PI server and our clients do not have Matlab. If there is a solution to this problem it would be greatly appreciated and would really like to hear your insights on the matter.
