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, they 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 figure A. 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 Figure B. These will override the settings set in Figure A 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.
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 is a field that is available for tilt sensors.
Enter the Height of the structure from the base to top of the structure. This will use a trig calculation with the Tilt X/Y angle to create a X/Y Vector at the top of the structure.
Specify the Structure Height to use X/Y calculations and allow vectors in Map View.
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 in.
Specify the Collar Elevation along with Sensor Depth to plot "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".
