In striving to reduce engineering time, we are constantly working on improving workflows. One example of these improved workflows is how zone overlays are created on floor plans. The video below will demonstrate how you can very quickly create zones that are pre-linked to relevant points. All of this, done using the standard SCADA system functionality. (The video example is based on Niagara while using BQL, but the same workflow is achieved using other SCADA systems native query language).
Flash Support on Windows 8 and RT
One of the biggest challenges for contractors in our industry is in decreasing engineering time. More and more, we are seeing the need for automating the automation industry. With DGLux, you have the ability for the graphics to create themselves based on the points that are available in the system. A concept that we call "Auto-Built" is essentially templates created utilizing standard DGLux functionality that look at the available points in the system and configure themselves to display the appropriate representations of the equipment. With Auto-Built templates, you can have 90% of your graphic creation already done as soon as you install DGLux. Take a look at the video below for a demonstration of an Auto-Built template in action.
Arlington, TX January 29, 2013 -- Today, DGLux, the most advanced visualization platform on the market received the award for best Automation Graphic Tool during the Control Trends Awards Ceremony.
The Control Trends Awards program was created to recognize the people, products, and companies that make the Building Automation and HVAC Controls industry great. "We are proud to receive the recognition of the industry in our efforts to provide a truly revolutionary visualization platform to the Automation market. We humbly accept this award and thank all of our customers for your support. We promise to continue working hard to provide our industry with great products" said Eugene Mazo, CEO of DGLogik, Inc.
San Francisco, CA December 12, 2012 -- Today, DGLogik Inc., the company which continues to push the boundaries of intuitive data visualization and creators of DGLux (DGLogik User Experience Platform) , announced plans to release DGLux 3.0.
The new release will focus on what matters most to the building automation industry, providing cutting-edge tools for integrators to drastically reduce engineering time for high-end visualization while empowering building owners, executives, facility managers and engineers to gain relevant insight into their buildings.
The ability to seamlessly connect to multiple building systems, and extract the relevant KPIs allows for making data-driven applications and dashboards creation easier than ever. In addition to the powerful customization capability, DGLux 3.0 adds deeper functionality for monitoring, analyzing, troubleshooting, and communicating building and energy management systems performance.

DGLux offers the "Repeater" which enables you to create dynamic content that expands based on data available in your system. Furthermore, DGLux offers the ability to pass values out of "Repeaters" to create dynamic navigation and interactions. By templatizing pages to accomodate various equipment configurations, the "Repeater" streamlines the process, saving time and enhancing overall dashboard performance. Ultimately, this functionality allows for dynamic dashboards that don't not need to be touched as additional sites and data are added to projects!
Historical data, typically analyzed by looking at spreadsheets or charts, can hide trends and the relationship of the values if not placed into context. By relating all of your real-time points and historical data for those points in a graphic timeline you can easily capture the big picture and derive actionable knowledge.
Check out DGLogik's article in the Summer 2012 edition of US Builders Review. We appreciate your readership! Stay tuned for upcoming articles discussing the unique capabilities of DGLux and how DGLogik technology can help you manage more efficiently and cut costs through intuitive data visualization.
Adjusting one property of an object using a property of another object is just one of the ways DGLux is more flexible and allows users to create unique, personalized experiences unlike any other visualization provider. Just like binding data to dynamically adjust properties, DGLux enables binding any component property to any other components property. In this tutorial, you will see how you can control the rotation and color display of a globe through the use of a slider or create a slider to control temperature setpoints.
Ever wish that you could deploy dashboards for mobile devices with the "pinch" gesture to zoom in or zoom out built in? Now with the DGLux Mobile Zoom Template, you can easily create this type of user interaction with ease! In this tutorial, we show you how this can be achieved using a fit ratio container which increases or decreases the width and height of your dashboard based on the area clicked. Try out DGLux today and deploy visually stunning applications which operate on web, desktop, and mobile without ever having to write a single line of code. App Yourself!
In this tutorial you will see how to create the gradient overlays that are commonly seen to represent zone temperatures on top of a floor plan. This exact same functionality can easily be applied for occupancy or lighting as well with the use of different set points. By watching this quick demo, you will learn how to import an image that could be your floor plan, use DGLux drawing tools to create your zone overlays and link the shapes to real time data from your station tree with a gradient map and a nuemeric map.
