Is there any interface available directly between Ovation DCS or Siemens T3000 DCS and PI Process Book to fetch the data from DCS to Process Book without having PI archive server?
Answer is No. Would recommend to use PI OPC DA Interface for (Siemens T3000) for real time data. Interfaces /connectors are designed for specific purpose and would always recommend interface route than direct connection to DCS. AF table to external table is one option to connect but will have an impact on performance.
