Climatix IC nodes

Node name

Function description

The alarm in node allows user to subscribe a flow to a new alarm. In other words, if the node is used as the start node, the corresponding flow is executed as long as the input criteria entered by the user are met. (Alarm type for the alarm and application for the plant that triggered the alarm match the alarm type and application set configured in the node.)

The root causes node displays the cause on the dashboard. The values are displayed under the ticket details in the Root cause tab.

The subscribe events node subscribes a flow to specific events in the overall system (domain events). In other words, this node can be used to always execute a flow if a plant is added to the organization (“claimed” / “assigned”). It may be that only the events “device claimed” / “device assigned” and “device renounced” / “device runassigned (delete or hide)” can be subscribed. Additional events may be added in the future (e.g. Create new user, etc.).

The datapoint request node reads data point values from Climatix IC. The information is used in the flow to determine recommendations.

Die abs.diff. Node calculates the absolute difference between two values.
