Product Line

TAC I/A Series

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.
