In Data Inputs, "Data Groups" now replaces "Type."
If you want to compare multiple data inputs for the same asset, you need a unique name for each data input “Data Group” within an asset. This will allow you to compare data inputs across assets with the same “Data Group” when viewing an Asset Report.
If you get an “Data Validation Error,” this means you have the same “Data Group” name for more than one data input for the same asset.
See example below and the recommended naming convention:
- A customer has 4 data inputs assign to 2 assets that show current/amp measurements:
- The customer gets a ““Data Validation Error” because the data input “Type” for both the Left and Right Shaft Amp data inputs have “Data Group” as “Current”
To fix this, re-name each “Data Group” to be unique to that asset. Example:
Asset Name: B1
- Data input named “B1 Left Shaft” is renamed with “Data Group” name = “Left Shaft Current”
- Data input named “B1 Right Shaft” is renamed with “Data Group” name = “Right Shaft Current”
Now, you can create an Asset Report to compare the data inputs on each asset.
- If you didn’t change the “Data Group” to be unique, you wouldn’t be able to differentiate between Left and Right Shaft Current:
- However, once you made the “Data Group” to be unique to each asset, you will be able to differentiate:
