This is to explain the process of adding a Sensorbot to a connect site.
- firstly we choose the app "Monitoring"
- click on settings
- click on Sensorbots
- click on "Open Accumine Edge"
This will open a new window. The new window is Edge. This is mostly where we configure and troubleshoot Sensorbot connections.
Clicking on the icon highlighted will bring up a form to enter the last 6 characters of a Sensorbots MAC address.
Enter the Sensorbot MAC address here then click submit.
This is what the new bot will look like after you click submit. Now you can assign the bot to an asset and also assign the Sensorbot to a gateway. After that you must wait for the bot to connect to the gateway before the next calibration steps can happen.
After the bot comes online we get access to the configuration screen by clicking on the pen icon highlighted.
A new bot will have 8 empty datastreams for configuration. To configure a new connection click on an empty datastream configure button.
For each of the inputs the customer connects up to their equipment one of these forms will need to be filled out.
Input Pin: This is where the actual input is selected.
Display name: This is where the input gets its name. This is a variable and will be what is shown in the flows area.
Sampling Logic: This is where we chose how to measure the input.
Periodic Measurement will provide a value based on voltage or amperage averaged based on later settings. Great for getting a running/down signal from a machine or amp clamp signal.
Count Events will provide a count of times the signal presented to the input changed by the event threshold(Publish threshold changes to event threshold when counting events). Great for getting count values.
Resolution: used for setting measurement rate and number of measurements by standard values or select custom to make up a sampling rate that works for you.
Measurement Rate: number value of how often to take a measurement.
Measurement Rate Unit: the unit value to assign to the measurement value.
Number of Measurements: how many measurements to take before processing and sending the data.
Publish Threshold(Periodic Measurement): limit that the resulting data has to change by before its pushed to the cloud.
Event Threshold(Count Events): Limit the signal has to cross, above or below limit, before its counted.
Processing(Periodic Measurement): Chose between averaging the measurements taken, pushing the minimum value in the number of measurements, or maximum value in the set.
Count Logic(Count Events): select from above event threshold or below event threshold to consider the input a count.
When finished click save. The bot will take some time to reconfigure and update everything on the backend. Be patient the process is not fast.
