What is the Difference between PI interface and PI Connector
That is a good question and fairly common question. I suggest you take a look at these two posts and let us know if you have more questions.
I would in fact point you to one of our UC presentation by our product manager:
The first 5 min may be enough to get you going. But in short:
- PI Interfaces have been developed and served our customers very well.
- The architecture works great and we will continue to improve them every year.
- Control systems evolve and there's various data sources being added other than just PLC and HMI
=> PI Connector is developed with a newer technology!
Today, there are not too many overlap between the two domain so we will need them both! You can check the list of available PI Connectors in above presentation and/or some are listed in below roadmap page.
