What's New in Canvas 9.4, Part 3

April 02, 2020 / 0 comments / in Canvas  / by Walter Goodwater

We’ve been reviewing some of the new Canvas features in the 9.4 release. We’ve covered navigation and high performance HMI. Today I want to talk about alarms, how to know when they’ve happened, and how to take action.

What's New in Canvas 9.4, Part 2

March 31, 2020 / 0 comments / in Canvas  / by Walter Goodwater

As I mentioned in my previous article, there are just so many new features in Canvas for 9.4 that we couldn’t fit it all in one post. Last time we talked about some of the new navigation features; today I want to talk about high performance HMI.

“High Performance” has been a bit of a buzzword for HMI design for a while now, and can mean different things to different people. In general, the goal of a high performance HMI is to prioritize actionable information over raw data. We want to remove visual distractions, limit points of confusion, and empower end users to take informed action. These principles have been part of Canvas’ design from the beginning, and we’ve added even more features in 9.4.

What's New in Canvas 9.4, Part 1

March 26, 2020 / 0 comments / in Canvas Product_Release  / by Walter Goodwater

We’re all very happy to have CygNet 9.4 out in the world. The CygNet development and product management team worked hard to ensure this release would provide significant value for our customers. Hopefully you can see the results of that work in the massive 9.4 release notes.

As the lead developer for Canvas, I want to spend some time highlighting some of the many new HMI features in 9.4. This release represents the biggest investment we’ve done in our new HMI since it came out a few years ago. Frankly there are just too many new features to meaningfully cover in a single post, so I am going to break it up and do a series on some of the awesome new things in Canvas.

Today I want to talk about navigation. Navigation is a big theme for Canvas 9.4. As people start building out new systems in Canvas, we wanted to expand options for end users to move around quickly and efficiently.

Relative Facilities, Canvas, and You

January 07, 2020 / 0 comments / in / by Blake Miller

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.  However, with Canvas, that relative linking functionality and resolution was baked into the product at the very beginning.   In this post, I’m going to discuss some design considerations and implementation ideas that I hope will help as you create Canvas screens.

Two-factor Authentication for CygNet Bridge API

August 01, 2019 / 0 comments / in API General  / by Peter Franklin

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. But the new feature I want to tell you about today is two-factor authentication (TFA).

TFA allows you to add an extra layer of security to your CygNet Bridge API. Instead of only requiring the user's login credentials for authentication, TFA requires the user to additionally provide a temporary 6-digit code that is generated by an authenticator app on their phone. See this video demonstrating how it works for the user.
