Updating Diagnostic Settings


A display of the diagnostic parameters for the data logger is located below the sensor parameter graphs on the dashboard page. Through the Diagnostic Settings menu, the display units, precision, graph limits and more can be set as desired. Additionally, diagnostic parameters can be hidden from the dashboard or plotted alongside sensor parameters.

Display Icons

The icons next to each diagnostic parameter allow the user to quickly determine the condition of each item. Note that the thresholds dictating the display icon selection are user-adjustable. Due to a wide variety of possible system configurations (power sources, integrated sensors, etc.), the default ranges may or may not be appropriate for a given system. As such, yellow or red icons do not always indicate a system issue. Once nominal conditions for the system have been established, it is recommended these thresholds be updated accordingly.

  • The green icon with the check mark indicates to the user that the data is within the currently set range.
  • The yellow icon with the exclamation point indicates to the user that the latest data point is on the lower or upper threshold value currently configured for that parameter.
  • The red icon with the exclamation point indicates that the diagnostic data value is outside of the currently configured thresholds.

Diagnostic Settings Features

Opening the Diagnostic Settings menu allows configuration of the following Sensor and Parameter settings:

    1.  Choosing to Hide or Show individual parameters.
      • Hiding a parameter will remove it from the diagnostic parameter display.
    2. Converting measurements to different units.
      • Enter in the Units field or select from the options available in the Convert drop-down list for automatic conversion.
    3. Changing the displayed Precision of each data point.
      • This will change the amount of digits displayed after the decimal point.

    1. Graphing the data.
      • Selecting the Graph option will show the diagnostic parameter along with the sensor graphical displays.

    1. Setting the minimum and maximum (Sensormin and Sensormax) values for each parameter has two effects:
      • This sets the threshold values which the Display Icons reference.
      • If the graphical display feature is active, this will adjust the y-axis scaling.

    1. Checking the Filter box omits data points that lie outside the set minimum and maximum values.
      • This will completely remove the outliers from the graph.
