Downloading the Software Builds:
The WEBs-N4.2.36.34 packaged software build can be downloaded from the Buildings Forum website at the following location. You can also find the Software Release Bulletin and the Installation document in the same location.

Unlike previous releases, the docs. folder in the software image does not include the Core Niagara documentation. Due to the overall size of the software builds, only the documentation for the tools is included. These docs can be downloaded separately from the same location on the Buildings Forum website. The zip file is named Niagara_4_Documentation-4.2.36.34.zip.

Niagara Analytics 2.0:
Niagara Analytics 2.0 is part of WEBs-N4.2 Software. The analytics is available both on the WEB-8000 Controller and WEBs-N4 Supervisor as long as it is supported by WEBs-N4.2 Software. Users will have the ability to apply a variety of analytic algorithms and diagnostics to both the historical and real-time data that is available in the Niagara database.

To get started with Analytics, we have included 20 example algorithms. Some of them include low/high chilled water temp, low/high supply temperature, low/high supply static pressure, etc. Please refer to the documentation that has details of these algorithms, flow charts and wire sheet views. The default WEBs-N4.2 license will include 25 analytics points to do basic analysis and chart them to a dashboard. When more points are needed, it can be purchased as per the part numbers mentioned below. You would need to upgrade the license to reflect the increased number of points.

System Integrator will find the analytics framework very valuable during the design and programming time. This will help them to do efficient programming while optimizing the control system towards proactive monitoring, while including corrective actions on a deteriorating stat, a pump or a controller. This data can easily be charted, reported on a creative dashboard.

Downloading the Software Builds:
The Niagara Analytics 2.0 Software is part of the WEBs-N4.2.36.34 packaged software build. The WEBs-N4.2.34.34 packaged software can be downloaded from the Buildings Forum at the following location.
