Historian Client Tech & Specs

The Wonderware Historian client accesses plant data stored in special history “extension” tables of the Wonderware Historian. This surpasses functionality of Microsoft Transact-SQL by providing time domain extensions that allow for more useful retrieval of time-series data from these tables. The client can join data across multiple tables to retrieve data efficiently.
