Powerful Analysis and Reporting


Wonderware Historian Client integrates with Microsoft Office to deliver data-trend and analysis using Microsoft Excel and comprehensive data reporting with Microsoft Word. It enables users to publish real-time and historical information to the web or to your intranet site using Information Server.

High Availability and Business Continuity

Wonderware Historian Client takes full advantage of Wonderware Historian redundancy capabilities. If the primary historian goes offline, the Historian Client automatically switches to a secondary historian. Once the primary historian is back online, Historian Client automatically switches back to the primary, without interruption to the user.


To enable seamless integration within your enterprise applications, Wonderware Historian Clients have componentized objects that enable you to integrate powerful analytical and visual capabilities within your own applications.

Wonderware Historian Client is built on Wonderware System Platform, which allows unprecedented scalability and functional richness in industrial applications. With System Platform users can build complete production and performance management solutions using a single, integrated development platform — saving time and development resources. Applications can start small and grow into a complete enterprise solution as required.

Client Control Objects


A powerful library of component-based .NET and ActiveX control versions enables extension of the Wonderware Historian Client to custom applications. These components are highly compatible with Wonderware HMI InTouch and third-party container applications, such as Microsoft Internet Explorer and the Visual Studio development system.
