On the Web Platform, it is possible to create a machine via the asset tree. When accessing the asset tree, click on the 'MANAGE' button on the top-right of the screen*. Then locate the desired sub-workspace in which to create the machine, i.e. where the machine will be inserted, and click on the "+" button on the right side of the folder. Having done this, the create options will appear: the first is for creating a sub-workspace (gray), and the second is for creating a machine (blue).
*Administrator permission is required
By clicking on machine, a new window will open, requesting information about the new machine:
The following details are required to complete the creation of the machine:
- Machine name (mandatory): used to identify the machine;
- Machine description (optional): information such as function, position, etc;
- Address (optional): location in which the machine is installed. It is possible to georeference via Google Maps;
- Image (optional): a photo of the machine can be registered.
- Type (optional): can be chosen from the pre-defined drop-down list of machines;
- Class (optional): criticality of the machine;
- RPM (optional): number of rotations per minute of the machine;
- Power (optional): power of the machine in kW;
- Rolls (optional): number of rollers (for conveyor belts)
3) Users (optional)
Users can be registered with specific permissions for the machine.
4) Gateways (optional)
Associate the machine to a gateway.
After completing the relevant fields and saving, the machine will be created.
Following on from the machine, it will also be possible to create a spot (monitoring point) within the machine. Similar to how the machine was created, the user needs to click the "+" button on the right side of the machine and select the green "Create Spot" icon.
Once more, a screen will be displayed requesting information about the new spot:
The following details are mandatory to complete the creation of the spot:
- Spot name;
- DynaLogger model: TcA, TcA+, AS or HF
2) Spot Settings
- Monitoring Location: Type of component on which the DynaLogger is mounted;
- RPM: revolutions per minute of the rotating component.
- Axes: orientation of the installed DynaLogger. The orientation of the DynaLogger axes is shown on the product label. Based on this orientation, the user should select the actual positioning of the axes based on how the DynaLogger is installed on the machine, for all three of the axes.
- Dynamic Range: determine the range of vibration, i.e. the maximum acceleration values captured and directly impacting the sensitivity of the sensor. Choose between 2g, 4g, 8g and 16g. The following table shows the resolution for each dynamic range:
It is important to select a dynamic range that isn't too low to the point that it saturates the signal, nor too high to the point that it affects the resolution and therefore making it difficult to analyse the data.
- Sample interval: the value that defines how regularly the DynaLogger will collect measurements from the point at which it is installed.
- Sensor Type: define which quantities will be collected by the associated DynaLogger;
4) Alerts (optional)
Define threshold levels A1 and A2, with A2 being the most critical. The values represent the alerts that can be registered for each spot. Alerts can be configured, for example, for temperature and velocity / acceleration, allowing the user to notice behavior outside of the standard expected for the asset. This information will be shown on the DMA (dashboard) and on the graphs displaying the continuous measurements for the spot.
After completing the fields and clicking "SAVE", the spot will be created. However, it will remain with an inactive status until a DynaLogger is associated to it. To add a DynaLogger, it is necessary to do so via the app, for which instructions can be found here.
