Certain metrics will require additional parameters to be specified that allow them to become fully customizable. If a sensor is measured in a metric that is compatible with these parameters, it will show up as available parameters throughout the app.
Permanent Metric Related Parameters
Navigate to Configuration > Sensors > and select the sensor you wish to configure. The permanent Metric parameters will show up here as shown in the figure below. The values set here will be applied to the sensor throughout the entire app.
Temporary Metric Related Parameters
Within certain modules, you will be able to apply temporary metric related parameters as seen in the image below. These will override the settings set in the previous image and will only apply to this particular instance within the app.
A reference date will become available when a sensor uses delta calculations. This is most common with any type of Position or Tilt measurement. The reference date will specify the first date used when calculating the amount of change within a certain time frame.
Position Reference Sensor/Reference Location
By setting a Reference Location or selecting a Position Reference Sensor, the user tells the platform what will be the base location (location zero) for delta calculations in terms of Easting, Northing and Hight. The user can either input ENH values or select another sensor to be that reference.
ENH Offset allows the user to correct the position of any prism. The value to be inputted is the difference between its original position and the current position.
A rolling interval will become available when a sensor uses delta calculations. It will set a moving time window that applies a reference calculation on every point. A rolling interval of 1 week will take every point to be analyzed and will compare it with a data point exactly one week prior and calculate the difference.
Sensor Azimuth will become an available parameter when using a sensor that measures position or tilt but does not automatically realize the North/East directions.
In order for the Northing and Easting calculations to represent actual Northing and Easting, you will need to specify the sensor azimuth.
Structure azimuth will become an available parameter when using a sensor that measures Position. This field will allow you to orient the Transverse/Longitudinal Axis in any desired direction. It is useful for finding movement in the direction of a specific structure or any point of reference.
Structure Height (Gauge Length)
Structure Height is a field that is available for tilt sensors.
Enter the Height of the structure from the base to the top of the structure. This will use a trig calculation with the Tilt X/Y angle to create an X/Y Vector at the top of the structure.
Specify the Structure Height to use X/Y calculations and allow vectors in Map View.
This is the rotation of the beam from the vertical axis.
Collar Elevation is a property that is available for any type of Piezometer.
Collar Elevation is the elevation of the top of the well the piezometer is installed.
Specify the Collar Elevation along with Sensor Depth to plot the "Elevation of H20" in the graphing module (Collar Elevation will default to 0 if nothing is specified).
Sensor Depth is a property that is available for any type of Piezometer.
Sensor Depth is the distance between the Collar Elevation and where the Piezometer is installed.
Use this along with Collar Elevation to plot "Elevation of H20".
Barometer Reference Sensor
Select a Barometer Reference Sensor to correct readings influenced by the atmospheric pressure, the barometer's reporting frequency must match the sensor to be corrected
For example: A piezometer that will be corrected by a Thread's barometer is reading every 60 minutes. The Thread and its barometer also have to be configured to read every 60 minutes.
Losing a temperature sensor is common in vibrating wire sensors. The Thermistor Override will ignore bad readings from the thermistor and use the inputted value to calculate data from the sensor.
