Creating Data Outputs
There are two ways to navigate to data outputs
- From the asset hierarchy page, select IO from the left side of the screen. Then select “+ ADD” in the top right corner and select “New Data Output”
- From the settings page, select Data Output from the left side of the screen. Then select “+ Configure New Data Output” from the top right corner
Either of the following steps will land you at this configure data output screen.
Name: Enter a distinguishable name for the output
Output Type: For analog output, select Analog Output from the drop-down menu
Control Value Mapping: This allows users to preconfigure values for output. This is utilized on the dashboard by using the “Button” Widget. Each configured value will then be selectable from the dashboard.
Example: For Valve positions we could configure the value 0 as “Close” and the value 10 as “Open.” The user would then be able to select Close or Open rather than 0 or 10
Parent Asset: This will add the data input to an asset of choice. (Not Required)
Gateway: This will be the gateway performing the output
Analog Channel: This will be the Analog Output of choice on the gateway.
