Facit

Facit is a cloud-based app available on the Industrial App Store that provides real-time monitoring and alerting options on Industial Processes.

It is part of the Alarm Analysis suite of tools developed by Intelligent Plant that brings Alarm & Event data collection into the heart of Industrial Process analytics. It can be integrated with an existing Alarm System to provide an alternative Alarm Management dashboard with fully audited Alarm Investigation workflow, or configure Facit Monitors to raise independent alerts.

To play around with Facit, go to the Industrial App Store and select the Facit app card. A default demo data source is available.

For more information, contact our sales team at info@intelligentplant.com

Getting Started

Facit uses App Store Connect - a query-routing and data-access software service that connects on-site data sources to off-the-shelf apps available on the Industrial App Store. Many companies already have App Store Connections - to check, contact your IT team or Intelligent Plant. (Note we will only respond to organization queries from verified organization email domains).

Assuming that you have an App Store Connection available, you will need to contact your App Store Connect administrator to Prepare Facit Monitoring.

Facit Data Sources

A typical Facit deployment will consist of three data sources:

Facit

  • Alarm Analysis data source where monitoring calculations are executed and results stored.
  • This is also where investigation audit is recorded.

Facit Limit Historian

  • IP Historian instance for storage of limits (e.g. a Normal Operating Limit for a process tag).
  • This historian has a “one-big-index” configuration, best suited for slow-moving or static data.

Target Data Source

  • Any data source where process values are stored and can be monitored (e.g. PI, Wonderware, IP21, etc…)

Facit Monitors

The Facit application includes an administration UI for the configuration of monitors (coming soon).

Data Core Script Tags

For low level administration of Facit Monitors, App Store Connect administrators can configure Script Tags on the Facit data source via the App Store Connect UI.

Facit Monitors are actually Data Core Script Tags stored to the Facit data source on the App Store Connection. This means monitoring is executed on or near the target data source which facilitates high performance, fine-grained monitoring.  

Notifications

For advance notification services, Facit can be used in conjunction with Microsoft Power Automate to trigger workflows, emails, text messages, status updates, reports, etc…
