Introduction


The Batch File Interface reads data from comma-delimited ASCII files and sends the data to a Plant Information (PI) System. Basically, the files include the PI tagname, timestamp, and data value. Other formats are described later in this manual. The interface requires the PI API so it may run on a PI API node or a PI Home node.

This document applies to Windows platforms.
