EMAIL INTERVIEW – Marc Petock and Ken Sinclair
Marc Petock, Vice President, Marketing Lynxspring & Connexx Energy
Sinclair: What is the Onyxx BACnet to Haystack Data Pump?
Petock: The Onyxx BACnet to Haystack Data Pump streamlines the interchange of data from BACnet devices and systems and makes it easier to incorporate the use of tagging, naming conventions, data modeling and analytics with one of the industry’s preferred protocols.
The Onyxx BACnet to Haystack Data Pump
is part of our portfolio of embedded edge hardware, bridges, gateways
for empowering customers to leverage IoT and optimize intelligence and
analytics from data by providing a robust ecosystem for edge
capabilities via a single, portable platform that supports a variety of
applications for all types of equipment and devices. It’s what we refer
to as delivering the Intelligence of Things.
Sinclair: How does it work?
Petock: It’s simple. The device provides direct network communication, data exchange along with protocol translation of BACnet points to manageable Haystack points. Acting as a BACnet client device, the Onyxx Data Pump manages all BACnet/ BACnet/IP/Ethernet or BACnet MS/TP devices connected to it. An operator simply connects utilizing a standard browser and is presented with all of the configuration screens, documentation, device settings, help, and software tools needed to complete a successful project.
Sinclair: What are some of the features?
Petock: A few of the key features include:
Sinclair: What was your thinking behind developing this product?
Petock: Lynxspring has
long believed in the importance of getting maximum value out of
data. With the increasing number and variety of equipment, sensors,
devices and building systems available to connect to and the amount of
data that is available from them, we have seen many data projects stall
or never reach their potential because companies struggle with the
complexity of the data. While data is technically available, the
challenge lies in working with it across multiple applications,
managing it and getting useful information out of it especially as data
sets come with various formats, different naming conventions, and
syntaxes. It's one thing to have access to data; it's another to make
Sinclair: Where do folks go to get more information?
Petock: Our web site www.lynxspring.com and http://shop.lynxspring.com
Sinclair: In addition to the BACnet to Haystack Data Pump, what other Project Haystack offerings have Lynxspring developed?
Petock: We have developed a Haystack server with Connexxion, our Cloud and Enterprise Shared Data Management Platform that uses the Project Haystack methodologies and standards and makes use of tagging and data modeling. We have also developed NodeHaystack which takes advantage of node.jsŪ and provides a fully scalable interface for anyone wishing to implement a Haystack server on their own. And there is more on the way.
