Administration page used to import sensors data (SCADA sensors or data loggers installed in the system) and sensors characteristics into WaterSight. Sensors types available to upload include the following types: flow, pressure, level, pump power and pump status.
It is possible to import sensors information trough a configuration excel file (template file available for download in the Digital Twin Setup page) or to manually add a sensor and its characteristics. After uploading sensor information, it is also possible to edit, delete or copy information, using the available buttons located above the table.
Note: To enable the Copy, Edit and Remove options, please select a sensor (row in the table) first. When clicking in a specific sensor (table row) the fields available for editing will appear below the sensor configuration table.
Required field. Unique name in the database for each sensor. Please just consider flow, pressure, level, pump power or pump status types.
Required field. Parameter of the signal in the database/source. Options are flow, level, pressure, power or status.
Required field. Communication or transmit frequency. The time interval in minutes in which the collected/read data is sent to the database (eg: 60 = in every 60 minutes data is send to the database).
Note: most SCADA sensors have low communication frequencies (communicate every minute or every 5 minutes for example) but some sensors (like for example dataloggers) may communicate with the data source only once or twice a day
Required field. Minimum read frequency. The time in minutes interval in which at least one data point is expected to be registered in the database (E.G 15 means at least one data point is expected every 15 minutes)
Note: This is different from the communication frequency. One sensor may only communicate once a day, but the registration frequency may be every 5 minutes for example (this means that data gets into the data source only once a day, but when it arrives there is data for all the day in every 5 minutes time step)
The priority when displaying in the sensor overview. Note that a priority of 0 will prevent the sensor to display in the Sensor Overview
