how to export data points and their mapping

This question was originally posted on DCIM Support by AJ on 2020-01-23


Is there any way we can list data points of the project in struxureware and also get the mapping of the points?

AJ,

Please provide additional information to exactly what data points and what you are trying to achieve.  It is hard to determine if you are trying to add data points or export data points from the systems.

Regards, Cory

basically I want to communicate with serial signals of an existing schnider BMS system. so I need to know signal X is the object Y from device Z.

Dear AJ,

In this case, you have two ways to solve your task:

  1. use StruxureWare Data Center Expert Web Service API (free);
  2. buy a separate license AP95MODBUS for DCE software and, as it is written in post Modbus licences "ap95modbus":

The AP95MODBUS license key allows you to read device information from DCE using Modbus. You can have an SNMP or Modbus device being monitored and with that key, you can read up to 247 devices' information from DCE. It does not allow for writing to DCE.

Which method is better - you choose.

I hope this is what you need.

With respect.

Dear AJ,

Of course this is no an executable file(s).

If you are a beginner in this topic, I recommend that you first read section StruxureWare Data Center Expert Web Services API:

The StruxureWare Data Center Expert web services API is vendor-neutral, scalable monitoring software that collects, organizes, and distributes critical alerts, surveillance video, and key information...

and subsection Sensor Service Methods.

In addition, posts on this topic What is the tool to fetch data with DCE API and  can be useful for a beginner. Please see them carefully.

With respect.
