SHIELD, the world’s first Predictive Diagnostics solution, which goes beyond Predictive Analytics to identify apparent causes and priorities of impending equipment failures.

Connector, a comprehensive, bi-directional link between EPI*Center and the OSIsoft PI System, which allows PI users worldwide to access SmartSignal intelligence directly in PI ProcessBook and PI WebParts screens.
