Viewing sensor data

Whether it comes from a physical or virtual sensor, data can be viewed in innius insight for Android and innius Insight in real time.

In innius insight for Android

To view sensor data in innius insight for Android, choose the relevant machine and then select 'sensors' from the menu bar. The sensors will then be displayed as tiles that show the sensor name, last received value, and the time stamp related to that value. The sensor state is displayed by the colored block, with dark blue for ‘normal’, orange with exclamation mark for ‘cautionary’, and red with exclamation mark for ‘emergency’.

On each tile there is also a conversation button, which allows you to view or start conversations with other users about that particular sensor.

The tiles are arranged according to the sensor group, as defined in the sensor configuration.

Clicking on a tile allows you to view more detailed sensor data over time. It displays the last received value, along with a time stamp. Underneath is shown a graph of sensor data, which can be viewed in periods of 1 hour, 6 hours, 1 day, 1 week, or 1 month. Clicking on the graph itself shows the exact sensor value for a specific point in time. At the bottom of the page is information on any threshold settings that apply to that sensor.

In innius Insight

To view sensor data in innius Insight, choose the relevant machine and then select 'sensors' in the options menu. The sensors will be displayed by default as a list. For each sensor the options menu allows you to go to the sensor configuration, to duplicate the sensor if you want to add one similar, or even delete it.

By using the radio buttons you can switch to tile view, which displays the sensors in a similar way to innius insight for Android. The tiles show the sensor name, last received value, and the time stamp related to that value. The sensor state is displayed by the colored block, with dark blue for ‘normal’, orange with exclamation mark for ‘cautionary’, and red with exclamation mark for ‘emergency’. The tiles are arranged according to the sensor group, as defined in the sensor configuration.

Clicking on a tile takes you to a page displaying detailed data. In the top left you'll still see the tile, with selection buttons either side to switch to other tiles. At the top, the sensor name and description are also displayed, together with a button to the sensor configuration. The sensor data itself is shown in a graph below, in periods of either a day, a week, a month or a custom period. If thresholds have been configured, these will be shown color coded in a key; moving the mouse over them will highlight them on the graph. Moving the mouse over data points on the graph, will display a table of values for the sensor data and the thresholds at that given point. Under the graph the time selection is displayed, and this can be changed using the arrow buttons on each side. At the bottom of the screen there is a drop down menu to display the shifts, if these have been configured. The shifts are then displayed in various colored blocks on the graph, with the shift name at the top of each.

There 3 possible vizualisations for the sensor data. It depends per datatype which visualization is the most usefull way to analyze the detailed data.

1. Line graph:

2. Bar graph:

3. Step graph:
