Issue

Is there a way to set both local and imported histories to update live when accessed in Niagara G3?

Product Line

TAC I/A Series

Environment

Niagara G3, versions 3.4 and higher.

Cause

User wants to display live data. Niagara G3 allows for the displaying of current history values (live data updates) buy using its On Demand history feature.

Resolution

The On Demand feature provides live updates for the History Chart or History Table views only. On Demand can be used for both local and imported histories.

The On Demand feature provides a 'Live Updates' toggle button (check box in Hx view) on both the history chart and history table views. Click this button to start the live update process.

Note:

The imported history’s “On Demand Poll Enabled” property must be set to true.
1. Expand the NiagaraNetwork of the station and select the source station for the imported history
2. Expand the source station and then expand Histories
3. Right-click on the Remote history you want to view live updates and select Property Sheet
4. Make sure that “On Demand Poll Enabled” is set to true and save
