Niagara G3 (NiagaraAx) Open NiCS (Niagara Compatibility Statement)

Niagara G3 (NiagaraAx) Open NiCS (Niagara Compatibility Statement)

Issue

Niagara G3 (NiagaraAx) Open NiCS (Niagara Compatibility Statement)

Environment

Niagara G3 (NiagaraAx)

Cause

NiCS attributes:

  • Niagara G3 (NiagaraAx) licenses has brandId="TAC".
  • A station's ability to accept NiagaraAx data from another NiagaraAx station depends on the accept.station.in="*" field in its license.
  • A station's ability to share NiagaraAx data with another NiagaraAx station depend on the accept.station.out="*" field in its license.
  • A station's ability to allow a copy of WorkBench to connect to it and engineer the station depends on the accept.wb.in="*" field in its license.
  • A copy of WorkBench's ability to connect to a NiagaraAx station to engineer it depends on the accept.wb.out="*" field in its license.

(Where "*" is the brandId)

'Open' licenses may be required when there is a need to:

  • Allow sharing of a station's NiagaraAx data to another station which has a different brandId in its license.
  • Accept NiagaraAx data from another station which has a different brandId in its license.
  • Allow a WorkBench connection from a copy of WorkBench that has a different brandId in its license.
  • Allow a copy of WorkBench to connect to a station which has a different brandId in its license.

Resolution

Niagara G3 open NiCS licenses have the following:

“accept.station.in="*”; “accept.station.out="*”and “accept.wb.in="*”and “accept.wb.out="*”.

The "*" is a wildcard designation to allow all brandIds.

You can specify new licenses to have open NiCS by selecting the 'Request open NiCS (Niagara Compatibility Statement)' checkbox in the I/A Series G3 license request forms.

You will need to purchase the part IA-LIC-CHG for each existing Niagara G3 that needs to have an open NiCS.
