J2 Innovations: Bringing Equip and Points from Niagara into FIN Stack!

fin_weeklyThis week’s video focuses on just how quick and easy it is to bring data from a Niagara station into your FIN Stack server. The video starts off by demonstrating how to connect Niagara to FINStack, using the nHaystackService (Niagara) and Haystack Connector (FIN Stack). Once the connection is established, bringing the data into FIN Stack is simple. How it works: By utilizing the ‘Add Haystack Equip’ tool within the Haystack Connector, you can select multiple equipment folders from their Niagara Station to become haystack equipment. After the equipment folders are selected, the tool prompts user to either a new Site or select an existing one for the equipment to reference.

As soon as you enter in a site name and press ‘Apply’, the tool automatically creates a new site, creates the Haystack equipment in Niagara, and adds a reference from the equip to the site. The only thing left for you to do is rebuild the cache, and drag the entire Site you just created into FIN Stack. Its really that easy!

The pay off: Using the Add Haystack Equip tool to bring in your Niagara data has many benefits, below are just a few:

Automatically creates a new Site
Automatically creates the selected Equipment
Automatically adds a ref between the newly added Equipment and Site
Automatically creates a ‘Site>Equip>Point’ hierarchy viewable in FIN Stack
Ability to drag & drop the entire Site into FIN Stack (Equip/Points included)
Automatically brings in any Niagara point settings (Such as Histories, Actions, Refs)
