 Sensor Status Map (this page)
 Sensor Overview

This page displays a color coded status of all configured sensors on a map.

The color coding is based on time delay of the lastest value found in the Sensor's database and its Communication frequency.

Sensor Status

Sensors listed on the right side menu are color coded according to the following:

Category Symbol Description
No Data  (Now – LastInstantInDB) > 4 x MaxLagTime
Partial data  (Now – LastInstantInDB) < 4 x MaxLagTime
OK  (Now – LastInstantInDB) < 2 x MaxLagTime

Where MaxLagTime is

15min + Sensor communication Frequency + Sensor Registration Frequency

Last Instant in DB corresponds to the last time step for which values were registered in the database for each given sensor. This time can be seen under Admin >> Sensors, by looking at Last Instant in DB column. Sensor communication frequency and registration frequency are also defined under Admin >> Sensors

Selected Sensor

When clicking a sensor on the map or selecting a sensor from the list located on the right side menu, a sensor chart with sensor reading for the previous 24 hours is shown below the map together with more information on the right side menu:

ID: The SCADA signal tag name associated with the sensor.

Value: The sensor value of the latest signal reading.

LatestThe timestamp of the latest signal reading.

By clicking in Open Details the user will be redirected to the sensor details page

Sensor Graph

The pattern confidence bands are represented by a grey band, while real (re-sampled 15 minutes) values are represented as a black, red or orange circles. Whenever real data (re-sampled) goes outside the pattern confidence bands (above percentile 95 or below percentile 5 of the pattern), an outlier is identified and the real value is color coded with a red circle. The user can drill in to the graph details by directly clicking on the sensor name located above the graph.


Clicking in the   icon located on the right side menu to search for a specific sensor. Restricts the displayed sensors to the text fragment entered into the search field.


Clicking in   icon located on the right side menu to filter sensors. It is used to control the way the sensor list is displayed.

Sort By Description
Alphabetic Sorts the list of sensors ascending in alphabetical order
Status Groups the list by status and sorts within groups in alphabetical order
Measurement Groups the list of sensors by their measurement and sorts within the group in alphabetical order

Status Description
No data Sensors report significant delay
Partial data Sensor reporting moderate delay
OK Sensor reporting within expected Delay

Measurement: The sensor measurement is configured under Sensor Configuration, under Administration.

Tag: see the sensors displayed by user defined groups. User defined groups or Tags are defined in the Sensor Configuration, under Administration.


Use the map controls to control the visibility of pipes and to define the assessment period. 

Pipes Turn on or off pipes. 

Define the period which sensor status are evaluated. By default sensor status are evaluated considering last 24 hour period, but user can choose to assess sensor status in the last 3 hours or in the last 7 days.
