If it isn't possible to start by connecting a physical machine directly to innius, it is possible to instead create a demo machine whilst you explore the capabilities of the innius platform. This is how to do it:
Create a new machine by clicking the button 'Add machine' (1) on the Machines page in innius Admin App.
Then the following screen will open. By clicking the checkbox 'Create a demo machine' (2), the machine will be added as a demo machine.
After this the machine is added to the list of machines and indicated by the 'demo' (3) sign.
Then you're able to create sensors on the demo machine. Information about sensors can be found here.
When the setup of sensors is completed, you need to add demo data to simulate sensor values. This can be done by clicking on 'Setup demo data' (4) button. This button can be reached by clicking on the icon on the "Demo data" tile.
A new screen appears where you can enter the demo sensor values (5).
After saving the setup, a new machine menu option will become available, 'Start demo data' (6).
When this is clicked, the machine will produce the defined demo data at the frequency configured for each sensor. Also the icon in the list of machines will change to 'Running demo'. You can stop it if you want to, via the option 'Stop demo data'. Otherwise it will stop automatically after 24 hours. You can restart it whenever you want.
