Relative facilities have been around in CygNet in some shape or form for many years. And along the way, there were enhancements made to Studio to assist in creating multi-facility templated screens based on a relative linking model.

CygNet Bridge API provides web-based access to CygNet data. See Eric's post for an overview of the debut Bridge API release. With the latest version, we've added many new features. We've added the ability to retrieve and acknowledge alarms, send and retrieve device data group transactions, send commands, and more.

It is not always easy to know when something is wrong with your comms. There are many different points of failure and it can be hard to know where to start looking when an issue is suspected. Even when you have all the data in front of you, it can be a hassle to find the signal in the noise.
For a long time, we have wanted to create a place where we can share scripts, screens, tips and tricks with you – and where you can collaborate with other SCADA admins. GitHub is the perfect place to enable cooperative work; many people can benefit from a single submission.
Since launching the Canvas Training videos, we’ve already seen an uptick in inquiries regarding the application, I wanted to take a moment to make sure you all know about our reporting feedback mechanism…
