High-performance archive search: Database archiving software gains significant speed

Chronos, Database Archiving, Process Data Management

Performance Package One now makes searching the Chronos archive up to 50 times faster. The feature is available as of Chronos version 5.3.0.




Especially when large amounts of data are searched in the Chronos archive, this could sometimes take a long time in the past – depending on hardware and network. A continuously increasing volume of data in the archive also reduced performance when searching for data.

Container technology: Lower costs, significantly more performance

Database Archiving, Process Data Management, Quality Assurance, Worker Guidance

CSP integrates Docker containers into its products. Their level of high availability, scalability and resource-saving use makes them the ideal partner for IT managers.


Container-Technologie Docker


Container technology is becoming more and more established replacing virtual machines. This is primarily because they are suitable for applications that are more static and do not change often, whereas containers are much more flexible and make frequent updates possible in a simple way. This technology is therefore ideal for applications with varying workloads. “Containers can be used across operating systems and are highly available. If one quits, the next one steps in. Just like a train, containers can be easily connected and disconnected as needed,” explains Stefan Hammermüller, Strategic Product Manager at CSP.

General, Chronos, Database Archiving, Process Data Management, Quality Assurance, Worker Guidance

Working group for joining technologies presents OPC UA Companion Specification. The aim of the cooperation is to maintain manufacturer independence in terms of machines, tools and bolting systems. Their unified, fast and cost-effective connection and the reduction of integration complexity in industrial automation are amongst others the focus topics.


OPCUA_VDMA_Release Candidate CSP


Bolting systems consist of numerous components that can now be modeled in a standardized way: Controllers, tools, storage devices, sensors, cables or even batteries, for example. Application areas are IT asset management, condition monitoring, result management and event management.


The German Engineering Federation, VDMA, recently conducted a study on interoperability in mechanical engineering among more than 600 companies in its sector. The results show that the goal of interoperable interfaces such as OPC UA must be to map production systems universally.

Implementing e-mobility independently of manufacturers


Rapid market changes demand increasing flexibility in the automotive sector. A study shows what impact new drive concepts will have on OEMs and suppliers by 2035.




Millions of process data are generated every day in the production of electric vehicles. The market is changing rapidly, flexibility is becoming essential. The continuous monitoring, evaluation and documentation of production data is thus becoming an important pillar in the production strategy. A manufacturer-independent system also makes it much easier for companies to handle process data.
